Steps to Take After a Car Accident
What you do in the wake of a car accident could impact whether you receive financial compensation. Even though you are injured, it is important to take quick action to help your legal case.
Get Medical Help
The first thing to do is to take care of your own health. First, you need to have your injuries completely diagnosed and treated so you can recover. You also need to do this for the claims process. The insurance company needs a full diagnosis to know the extent of your injuries. You would need to submit medical records as supporting documentation for your demand.
Contact a Lawyer
You already have plenty on your plate after an accident. It goes without saying that you are stretched and stressed. You do not have to begin the legal process on your own, nor should you. One of the first calls that you should make is to a lawyer who can begin immediately to investigate your accident. Your lawyer will also handle the process of dealing with the insurance company as you seek compensation.
Document Your Experience
Your compensation includes pain and suffering. This is meant to pay you damages for what you have experienced. Your medical records will tell part of this story. You can also speak up for yourself by keeping a log of your experience after the accident. This will let a jury or insurance company know about your particular suffering. Although the insurance company may try to underpay you for pain and suffering, you are better off with more data.
