In today’s economy, life can be tough enough. Accident victims who have been injured and can’t work take on the added burden of financial stress. Even accident victims with excellent medical and disability insurance may find themselves waiting for weeks before their insurance claims are processed and financial assistance is received. In the mean time, what do you do?
If you’ve been injured in an accident and are missing work or cannot perform your regular routine without assistance, it’s important that you meet with an attorney now, while the details of the accident are still fresh in your mind.
At our firm, when clients call us, we usually request that they do a few things before they come in to see us. First, we ask that they make detailed notes about their accident, including the date, time, road conditions, and series of events that led up to and followed the accident. We ask clients to include information about discussions with insurance agents, employers, the other driver, and police.
We also ask our clients to bring their police reports, photos, insurance documents, medical records and other pertinent information. It’s important that your attorney has as much detail and information as possible.
Clients who visit with us find caring individuals who are truly interested in helping them get the compensation they deserve when they have been wrongfully injured. If you’ve been injured in an accident, keep good records, make good notes, and contact David Van Sant, a Georgia personal injury attorney with the experience to help you.
