Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries and Benefits
Accidents involving vehicles can result in many different types of injuries, from soft tissue injuries to serious head trauma. Getting a proper medical examination is imperative to your case. Soft tissue injuries such as whiplash may not be present immediately after the accident, but a physician will be able to examine the strain and pinpoint your injuries.
If your injuries are incurred because of another person's or driver's negligence, you will likely be entitled to benefits. If the other driver did not have insurance or was underinsured, you may be able to get the benefits throughout the term of your own policy even if you have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. We can evaluate your policy to determine if this applies to your situation.
It is imperative that your lawyer conducts all contacts with the insurance company. Insurance adjusters may try to record statements or ask questions to get specific information from you. This information could be used against your claim. Having your lawyer handle all contacts with the adjuster will make certain that your rights are fully protected.
What to Do After an Accident?
Immediately after an auto accident, you should do the following:
1) Get to the hospital and have a thorough examination from a doctor or a physician.
2) Get contact information from the other driver and collect information from witnesses.
3) Check if the other driver has insurance and exchange insurance information.
4) Connect with a lawyer.
We will ensure that you are treated fairly by the insurance company so you can get the benefits and financial compensation you are entitled to. If your situation calls for it, our lawyers can work with accident re-constructionists and other experts to assist in gathering evidence for the case. We can also help assess property damage and assist you in getting access to medical professionals to help you with your injuries.
