After A Car Accident, An Attorney Is Crucial
An automobile accident can irreversibly change your life in an instant. If you have been injured or have lost a loved one in an automobile accident, it is important that you know your rights. You may be entitled to recover monetary compensation, including past medical expenses, lost wages and diminished future earning capacity. Without GFM, accident victims may be taken advantage of by insurance companies and are often inadequately compensated for their injuries.
What To Do After An Automobile Accident
Many insurance companies will try to deny your insurance claim if there is no accident report, so it is best to call the police right after an accident. Having police on the scene is also beneficial should you require medical attention, as the officer can radio for an ambulance. It is also vital that you seek medical attention. Medical records and bills are the best evidence to document your injuries. Photographs of vehicle damage and your injuries are of paramount importance, as well. Document everything. Focusing on gathering evidence may be difficult, but the information obtained can be tremendously helpful in building your case.
Remember that anything you say at the scene of the accident is admissible evidence that can potentially be used to undermine your case or discredit you as a witness. Saying things like “I’m okay,” “I’m sorry,” or “it was my fault” will surely be used against you if you file a lawsuit seeking compensation for your injuries. Having an experienced personal injury attorney on your side is the best thing you can do to protect your rights. GFM only represents accident victims, never insurance companies. We are well-versed in the entire claims process from pre-suit investigations to jury trials.
