3 Important Tips From a Car Accident Attorney

Car accident LawyerAccording to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in 2013 there were approximately 2.31 million people injured in motor vehicle traffic accidents. With so many accidents, millions of motorists and their passengers are bound to suffer some sort of serious injury requiring medical treatment.

If you were involved in an accident that was caused by the negligence of another motorist, you may be entitled to compensation. Hiring the best attorney will help ensure that you are properly compensated for your injuries. Chances are, by hiring a good attorney you will receive good advice that will help guide you in settling your claim for the value that it is actually worth.

Below are three important tips that good car accident attorneys generally advise their clients:

  1. Obtain pertinent information from all of the parties at the scene of the accident. This is very important because without having the necessary information, it can make it more difficult for your attorney to hold the right parties accountable for their careless actions that caused the accident. For example, pertinent information may lead your attorney to determe that because the driver who caused the accident was acting during the scope of employment, his or her employer may also be held accountable for your injuries.
  2. Make sure you seek medical treatment for pain in anywhere in your body as soon as possible following an accident. It is common for most personal injury victims to assume that the car accident could not have caused them any injuries or their pain is from something minor. As such, they may not seek proper and adequate medical attention. And upon a later examination, they may determine that the pain is something serious. Although a later examination is better than none at all, the significant delay may cause the insurance adjuster to question whether the pain was actually caused by the accident or another accident (or something else) that may have occurred in the interim.
  3. Do not make a settlement demand until you have fully recovered from your injuries. This is an important piece of advice because once you have settled your case, you will not be able to seek any compensation for any future medical treatment or pain and suffering. Thus, it is pertinent to make sure you are totally pain-free and have realized all of your expenses before you make a demand to the insurance adjuster.

Perhaps the most important tip is to seek immediate legal help. A good attorney can help guide you and ensure that you have taken every step necessary to maximize the value of your claim and obtain the full compensation that you deserve for the injuries that you have suffered.
