Auto Accidents Can Have Serious Consequences
Getting into an auto accident can be life-changing. Sustaining a serious injury means you have medical expenses to take care of, lost wages to deal with or even a damaged car to fix or replace. These situations can place a burden on you and your family, and it may even put your financial future at risk.
If the accident was caused by someone else, you may be entitled to compensation. At The Schnaare Law Firm, PC, in Hillsboro, Missouri, our attorneys can represent you from start to finish in these claims.
What To Do After An Accident
In order to build the best case, we recommend the following immediately after a car, truck or motorcycle accident:
- Seek medical treatment: Get checked out by a medical professional even if you do not feel sore or injured. Injuries from the accident can manifest later, and you want record of your health.
- Attain the contact information of other parties involved: As with any accident, collect contact and insurance information of all vehicles and parties involved.
- Get pictures of the accident: Take as many pictures as you can of the accident, the vehicles involved and the surrounding areas. We can use that to build your case.
- Do not talk to insurance companies: Do not discuss anything with insurance companies until you get a lawyer. Insurance companies are looking to close your claim as quickly and cheaply as possible, even if that means giving you less than you deserve.
