What To Do After Getting Into A Car Accident

After getting in an auto accident, the emotional and financial challenges facing you may seem insurmountable. While some car accidents are minor fender benders, others have the potential to lead to catastrophic injuries — or even wrongful death.

At Tipton Law Offices in Fairmont, I don't want you to face these challenges alone. Not only is it extremely difficult emotionally, but only an experienced attorney can secure the full scope of compensation you are entitled to receive after your accident.

When you're injured, you may not know where to start. Be sure to follow these tips on what to do after getting in a car accident.

1. Seek immediate medical treatment

For the sake of your health, if you believe you may have been injured at all, seek immediate medical treatment. Be sure to complete treatment as well, to ensure you get well as quickly as possible. In addition to jeopardizing your health, delaying treatment or not following through on treatment could lower the financial recovery you may be entitled to receive.

2. Don't talk to the insurance company alone

Insurance companies are hardly ever on your side. Their priority is their profit, not your well-being. That is why claims agents will get you to admit guilt, and will always lowball their offer to you. By talking to the insurance company, you may accidentally say something that could hurt your case later on. And by taking their settlement offer, you may be leaving a substantial amount of money on the table — money that you need to cover the expenses related to your recovery.

3. Consult a personal injury lawyer

Without an extensive knowledge of personal injury law, you won't be able to recover the maximum recovery for your car accident injuries. Any misstep could cause you to front some of the costs of your injuries, even if the accident wasn't your fault. You can't afford mistakes, which is why my law firm is committed to getting every dime you deserve.
