While it might seem obvious to those who know the law, if you are injured in an auto or truck accident, you need to contact a personal injury attorney. If the accident was not your fault, at a minimum you are entitled to have your auto repairs and medical bills covered. While you may think the insurance company will “handle everything,” that often is not the case. An attorney can help you through the process and make it easier for you to get back on your feet after an injury from a car or truck accident.
Typically the best time to call the attorney is immediately after you have received all required medical attention. Your injuries and those of your friends or loved ones who may also have been injured require your attention first. Often there are accident reports to file, and at that time much of the information your attorney will need will be compiled.
Contact an attorney as soon as possible after an accident. Your attorney can take care of many of the details that are confusing or frustrating to accident victims. We also can make sure you are not pressured to settle for reduced levels of repairs to your vehicle or coverage that is limited by the individual at fault’s insurance policy.
Accidents are bad news no matter how severe, but when they leave the victims dealing with pain, injuries, and the need for significant medical treatment, someone has to pay.
