Read on for some more information about what to do when a car accident causes your injuries.
How to Respond When a Car Accident Leaves You Injured
The aftermath of an accident can feel like a blur. To make matters worse, your injuries and piling bills can leave you feeling like you don’t know where to begin.
The good news is that, even though you can never fully erase the impact of your accident, you can take steps toward recovery. Filing a car accident claim can allow you to do just that.
Here’s some ideas for what you should do following a car accident injury:
- Get to the Doctor – Having a doctor diagnose and treat your injuries can help you start to recover. It also indicates to the insurance company—that will review your medical records later—that your injuries are indeed serious and fully documented.
- Send a Demand Letter – Once you’ve figured out who the responsible party or parties are in your car accident case, you can send a demand letter to their insurance company to begin the process of filing a claim.
- Consult a Car Accident Attorney – Insurance companies will always try to pay the least amount possible to settle your claim. That’s why it’s recommended that you retain the services of an experienced attorney, who can help you negotiate for the highest possible compensation for your injuries.
When you’ve been injured in an accident, it’s not the insurance company’s job to make sure that you receive the proper compensation—it’s your own. Although the prospect of negotiating for your money can be scary and complicated, there’s no reason to go it alone. A car accident attorney from The Law Offices of Casey D. Shomo can help you unlock the potential settlement that you deserve.
