St Marys County Accident Attorney Explains What to Expect When Filing a Personal Injury Claim

Vehicle accidents can be a devastating ordeal. Afer the initial shock of the accident, an individual must begin the long and arduos road to physical and emotional recovery. The healing that comes after the accident should be the focal point of the victims recovery, not dealing with the insurance company. By hiring a personal injury lawyer, you can concentrate on what matters after an accident and let your attorney deal with the ordeal of securing compensation.
Actions you should take following an accident:
• Seek medical attention if you are injured or think you are injured! Even though the accident could have been minor, the rush of adrenaline through the body sometime masks injury. It is important to have a medical doctor run tests to ensure you have not incurred serious injury.
• If possible, exchange contact information and insurance information with all parties involved.
• Write down EVERYTHING anyone says at the scene. This may later be used as evidence AGAINST them, especially if they admit guilt!
• Take note of the location of the accident, positioning of vehicles, road conditions, and you interpretation of what happened. Doing this immediately after an accident is imperative. The details can become hazy the longer you wait to document them.
• Contact a St Marys County accident attorney who focuses on personal injury lawsuits.
After you provide this information to your attorney, concentrate on getting well. Do not answer any questions posed by the insurance company, simply refer them to your lawyer. He or she will speak with the insurance company on your behalf.
Your doctor may decide you need additional tests or treatment. The additional tests may include MRIs, CAT scans, or x-rays. This information will help your lawyer determine whether to pursue additional compensation for long term care, wage loss, or physical therapy.
