What to Do if You're Injured in A Car Wreck
March 11, 2013
If you are involved in a car accident, a trucking accident, or a motorcycle accident that is someone else's fault, then you may be entitled to be reimbursed for your medical bills, lost wages and other damages, to include your pain and suffering. The negligent party's insurance company or even your own insurance company is responsible for paying these legal damages.
Insurance companies aggressively defend claims with teams of experienced lawyers. Because the insurance companies begin mounting their defense within minutes after your wreck, it is equally important for you to act quickly after being involved in an auto accident, as your actions can impact your rights and your recovery.
Car accidents can result in a large number of insurance forms, medical bills, accident reports, and other procedures, much of which may be designed to limit your ability to recover money damages to which you may be entitled. When you are injured, you need an attorney who understands the legal system and how insurance companies work to help you successfully navigate this process.
Insurance companies and their lawyers often attempt to settle a potential claim quickly by offering an injured victim much less than he or she is entitled to, and before potential injuries are discovered by a doctor. Therefore, it is extremely important not to sign any documents or provide any statements to these insurance companies without first talking with an experienced injury attorney.
