What You Need to Know After a Motor Vehicle Accident

Q: What type of medical care should I seek?

A: It’s always better to seek medical attention and have a doctor tell you that you are okay than to attempt to “shake off” any injuries. If you cannot move under your own power, or if you feel any type of pain when you try to move, you should have an ambulance take you to a hospital from the scene of the crash. If you have cuts and bruises, but are able to move under your own power, you should immediately go to an emergency clinic for a full examination. In any event, you should schedule an appointment to see your personal physician as soon as possible.

Q: What do I need to know before I talk to my insurance agent?

A: You should notify your auto and health insurance providers as soon as possible, but you don’t want to sign anything given to you by an insurance provider until you have retained legal counsel. Insurance companies maximize their profits by paying as little as possible on claims. An adjuster will most likely contact you fairly quickly with an offer to pay your claim. Don’t accept the check and don’t sign any documents without consulting your attorney.

Q: What happens if the other driver was uninsured?

A: Most insurance providers offer additional coverage that goes into effect if the other driver involved in an accident was underinsured or uninsured. Your attorney can help you determine if you opted for this additional coverage.

Q: How soon must I start the legal process to recover for my losses?

A: In most states, you must file a lawsuit within two years of your injury. However, the sooner you hire an attorney, the better, as witnesses will have better recollection and evidence will typically be easier to obtain.

Many people have the idea that when we file a lawsuit, we are suing the person. We are not. We are suing the insurance company that the person has been paying to protect them against a loss like this. The insurance company that this person has been paying for quite some time.
