When you are in an accident, who do you call? What if you are injured in the crash? What happens then?
If you are in an accident and you are injured, seek medical treatment immediately. If an ambulance is called and you are taken to the hospital, make sure you cooperate fully and that you take the time to make sure you get thoroughly checked out. Many accident victims worry that the high cost of healthcare will break their personal bank. But if you are not at fault, and even if there’s a chance you were, don’t take chances with your health. Get all the treatment you need as quickly after the accident as possible.
Once you have been patched up and are ready to tackle your wrecked vehicle, deal with you auto insurance provider, and work toward a settlement with the other driver, it’s vital that you put a lawyer on your team.
Without a lawyer, many accident victims find themselves strapped with medical bills for injuries they did not cause. Insurance rates for auto can go up substantially if you are found to be responsible for a crash. Don;t let the responsible party get away without a fight. A good attorney will take action on your behalf and help you get the resolution you deserve.
