Steps to Take after a Car Crash
If you have been involved in a car crash, it is important that you follow these steps to have the best chance of filing an adequate claim.
- Seek medical attention immediately so you are safe and healthy, whether by calling the paramedics or going to the hospital. The longer you wait for treatment, the more suspicious the insurance agency will be.
- Take photographs of your injuries and damages to your vehicle, as well as pictures of the accident scene
- Take down the information of the responsible party who hit you, such as his insurance details, name, phone number, and more
- Ask any eyewitnesses, passengers, or bystanders for their statements as to what happened
- Reach out to a skilled lawyer who can help handle your lawsuit for you. An attorney can prove that you were owed a duty of care that was breached, which resulted in an accident that caused actual physical harm.
An attorney can also make sure that your claim is filed within the proper statute of limitations and can help you understand each part of the legal process.
Car Crash Lawsuit Compensation
A personal injury lawsuit against the liable party in a car crash can result in different kinds of compensation for your damages, including coverage for your medical bills, lost income at work, emotional pain and suffering, property damage, and more.
You may find it difficult to receive restitution if you were injured. An attorney can properly represent you and spend the time you would not be able to negotiating the fairest deal with the insurance agent.
