Car Accidents

The First Days After Can Be the Hardest

If you have just been in a car accident, you are probably feeling a lot of stress. You weren’t planning to be out of work and without a vehicle. If you were hurt, the stress is probably 10 times worse. With the right lawyer, you can focus on healing instead of dealing with the auto and health insurance companies and medical bills.

01

Get help from a medical doctor if you are hurting.

02

Take pictures of the damaged vehicles and the accident scene.

03

Don’t give any statements to car insurance companies about how the wreck happened or your injuries.

04

Tell the car insurance company to give you a rental car while your car is being repaired.

Warnings About Car Insurance Companies

  • Some car insurance companies will send very small settlement offers immediately after a car accident, hoping to take advantage of the financially stressful time that you are experiencing. These offers are almost never a fair deal.
  • Some car insurance companies try to use your pre-existing medical conditions against you. If it sounds unfair to you, don’t accept their offer.
  • Even if the accident wasn’t your fault, your car insurance company should help you get a rental car and your car fixed immediately. Some car insurance companies tell their clients that the at-fault person should pay for it. That is only partly true. You should use your car insurance to get your car fixed quickly and they will go after the at-fault person’s insurance company for a reimbursement.
  • Many car insurance companies try to discount what they pay for medical bills. If you have a 10,000.00 dollar medical bill, they need to pay the full bill, not a cheaper amount. Don’t accept their offer.
