The True Cost Of An Injury
Many people do not have any real idea as to how much their medical care, exams, physical therapy, medications and lost income will actually amount to. In fact, it is not unheard of for someone to be forced to claim bankruptcy after a serious accident.
If the accident was caused by someone else, it’s likely that you are entitled to financial compensation. Our attorneys pursue these injury claims. We will deal with the insurance agency. We will help you understand the potential cost and losses. We then work diligently to ensure that you get the compensation that aligns with your costs and loss.
What To Do After An Accident
In order to build the best case, we recommend doing 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 a record of your health. Some injuries are not immediately evident such as a concussion, internal injury or even a broken or cracked bone. Adrenaline and shock can mask pain, so it’s always in your best interest to be examined.
- 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.
Contact an attorney who handles personal injury claims so that you have the full information you need to make sound decisions. Insurance companies are looking after their own bottom lines. They want to pay out nothing or as little as possible. We work for you. We want to ensure all of your bills get paid.
