What Do I Do After A Personal Injury Accident

Being hurt in a personal injury accident, whether it was a slip and fall, a car accident, or a dog bite can be confusing and very stressful. If you sustained injuries from any one of these accidents, you can pursue compensation. For this reason, you may want to speak to a reputable accident attorney for legal guidance.

Steps To Take After An Accident

Many accident victims like you, question their next steps. Do I file a claim? Do I get the other person’s insurance? Will I need a lawyer? All of these are very common questions to have. Here are some helpful tips you should know:

  • Seek medical treatment – No matter what you are feeling, get yourself examined by a physician
  • Exchange Insurance Information – To pursue a claim, you will need contact and insurance information from the other party
  • Take Pictures – Get photos of all damages, injuries, and the accident scene
  • File a Police Report – An official document contains all details of the accident, and will be useful in a liability dispute
  • Preserve Evidence – Physical evidence can help prove the severity of your accident
  • Speak with a Personal Injury Lawyer – A good accident attorney can answer your questions and help you through the legal maze you’re in

How An Accident Attorney Can Help

In personal injury claims you are going up against the negligent party’s insurance. An accident attorney will help you in ways you may not have considered. Based on a 1999 study, the average person receives a settlement three times larger with legal assistance than without it. In a personal injury case, this could make a huge difference.

A knowledgeable personal injury lawyer can help you understand questions such as:

  • The person who rear-ended me doesn’t have insurance. What do I do now?
  • Their insurance refuses to pay, how can I get what I deserve?
  • The owner of the dog that bit me won’t take responsibility. How can I prove this?
