If you've been involved in a car accident, you need to take at least 5 steps:
- Call 911 if someone is injured, there is a dispute as to what happened, or there is significant vehicle damage.
- Seek medical treatment if you are injured.
- Exchange insurance information with all parties involved in the collision regardless of fault.
- Take photographs of damage to all vehicles and, if possible, take a recorded statement from the at fault driver admitting fault.
- Contact a car accident lawyer for a free consultation.
If you've been in this situation before, you know the hassle of opening insurance claims and dealing with adjusters while also seeking medical treatment and trying to recover your health. It's not ideal and is a generally frustrating experience for the unrepresented injured person.
Hiring a car accident attorney will relieve much of the stress associated with an insurance claim and will allow the injured person to seek necessary treatment. The attorney will collect all relevant documents and information like traffic collision reports, witness statements, insurance records, photographs, and other documents that help support your claim. The attorney will communicate directly with the insurance adjuster on your behalf. The attorney can help locate medical treatment if required.
The attorney will protect your rights from abuse by the insurance company. The insurance company's primary goal is to save money on the claim and this is accomplished by denying or disputing liability and damages whether the facts support a dispute or not. The car accident attorney will help collect the evidence needed to prove your claim and maximize the value of your settlement, verdict, or award.
