You are a cautious driver. You pay attention to the road, follow the signs, and are alert to other motorists on the road. Nevertheless, you still got into an accident. The main questions we often hear from accident victims is whether they have a case. This question is the very reason why you need to immediately call a car accident lawyer after getting into an accident.
Our attorneys and legal staff will attentively listen to your story. We will ask a number of questions to determine whether you have case. However, you can also ask yourself a few questions preliminary questions to evaluate your claim immediately after an accident. This article discusses three important questions to ask yourself after a car accident.
1. Who Caused the Accident?
If you believe that another person’s negligence caused the accident, you may have a claim against that motorist and/or their insurance company. If you caused the accident, you may not have a claim. However, it is still important to consult with an Orange County accident attorney since we may view the facts differently and may be able to determine that you may not in fact have caused the accident.
2. Did You Suffer Injuries?
This may be an obvious question, but still an important one. Before you file an injury claim, you need to have suffered injuries. If you were only inconvenienced and not injured in the car accident, you may not have a personal injury claim. This is regardless of whether the other party clearly caused the accident. The bottom line is that if there are no injuries, there is no personal injury claim.
3. Do You Need or Expect to Need Medical Care and Treatment?
The biggest part of most personal injury claims are the medical expenses the victim has accumulated or expected to accumulate. If you did not or do not expect to need any medical treatment costs associated with the collision, you may not have a viable personal injury claim.
If you have answered yes to these three questions, you should immediately call our Orange County personal injury attorneys for a free consultation.
