Motor Vehicle Accidents
Even the strongest individuals will have their nerves rattled after a car accident, especially if it involved an injury. You don’t want to make a mistake that might harm your potential award for the compensation you deserve after another person’s negligence or distracted driving. Here are a few tips on what to do after an accident:
- Seek medical attention. A minor crash, such as a rear-end accident, can cause injuries that may not be immediately apparent, leading to aches and pains that could impact your quality of life.
- Do not answer questions from another driver’s insurance company. These representatives do not have your best interest in mind. Anything you say could hurt your case.
- Follow all doctors’ orders and treatment. Again, the insurance company’s attorney will scrutinize your actions following the accident. Do not give them anything to fuel their arguments against paying.
- Contact an attorney as soon as possible. This is not only good for your case, but your well-being. The attorney will guide you and be there to answer your questions, which allows you to focus on your health and recovery.
