What Should I Do After A Car Accident?
The first thing you should do is get medical attention for anyone injured and call the police. When that is done, you should call a personal injury lawyer. Do NOT say that the accident was your fault. Instead, begin exchanging insurance information with the other driver and wait for your attorney to arrive. An attorney can work quickly to gather all the relevant evidence and begin collecting witness information.
What Kinds Of Compensation Can A Car Accident Victim Receive?
Car accident victims can receive compensation for much of their care. While your settlement will depend on your injuries and any relevant treatment you need, in general, car accident victims are eligible for financial assistance with their medical care, long-term treatment, any relevant adaptive technology needs, and compensation for time away from work during recovery.
Should I Accept The Insurance Company’s Initial Settlement Offer?
You should never accept an insurance settlement without first speaking with an experienced personal injury lawyer. An attorney can ensure the settlement does not underestimate your medical care expenses. Keep in mind that insurance companies are in business to make money, not necessarily to pay you what you’re owed for your injuries. At Almanzar & Youngers, P.A., we can negotiate with the insurance company to help you get the maximum available compensation.
