Car accidents can sometimes translate into large amounts of money at settlement time and that is usually when the gloves come off and it becomes time for serious representation. The insurance company will use every means possible to try and pay you as little as possible on your claim. They have both legal resources and money which they will be willing to spend lots of to try and win the case and minimize their liability if it goes to trial. But that goes both ways, as it also means they have the funds to settle with you fairly to make sure you are compensated fairly and that you are taken care of now and in the future for your injuries.

What Should I Do If I Am Injured In a Car Accident?
To add to the seriousness of an already bad situation, the things you say and the decisions you make immediately following the accident or crash are the most critical and important of all. Accident victims are usually in shock, in pain and typical very confused immediately following an accident and the last thing they are thinking about is protecting their legal interests. That is where we come in, we will be glad to discuss your case with you, as soon as possible and appropriate after your accident.
There are two vitally important rules that apply whenever you are involved in any type of motor vehicle-related accident, no matter how serious it may be or how minor it may seem at the time.
You Must Seek Immediate Medical Attention
The first thing you must do after any type of motor vehicle accident is to seek immediate medical attention, even if you don’t seem to be injured too badly at the time. In cases of severe injury, this is obvious and you will be taken care of by the first responders to the accident. However, in a lot of motor vehicle accidents, you may actually be injured much worse than you feel like or think you are at the time of the accident. That is why it is vitally important to seek immediate medical attention and get thoroughly examined by a doctor after any vehicle-related accident.
You must have your accident-related injuries documented by a medical professional and then follow up with them on a regular basis after the accident. This may sometimes go on for an extended period of time, in order for you to have any hope of a proper claim and compensation for the level of injuries and types of damages you may be entitled to.
Never Talk To Anyone But Your Attorney About The Accident!
When you are involved in any type of motor vehicle accident, you will most likely be asked to make a statement to the police or file an accident report as soon as you can after the accident. If you can wait for your lawyer to be present that is always recommended, so they can protect your interests while you are making your statement or filing the report.
Under no circumstances at any time ever, should you discuss anything about the accident – especially anything about your injuries – with any of the other parties involved in the accident or anyone they know. You should never talk with anyone representing their insurance company. Try not to talk to anyone except law enforcement authorities about the accident, and then only tell them what they ask. Do not volunteer any additional information to them. Try very hard not to talk to anyone after a vehicle accident of any kind, until you have an attorney present to represent you and protect your legal interests.
