Three Things To Do After An Accident

Three Things To Do After An Accident When you're involved in an accident of any kind, it's easy to get overwhelmed. Not only can your physical and mental recovery take a huge effort, but you could also be left struggling financially due to medical bills and lost hours away from work. If you're careful, however, you can take a few basic steps that can make a huge difference

What you do in the hours, days, and even weeks following an accident can have a dramatic impact on your recovery - physically and financially. The first step is obviously to get medical attention if you're seriously injured. But beyond emergency treatment, there are other things to think about as well. With that in mind, here are three of the key things you have to be sure to do after you're injured in an accident. Keep them in mind to ensure that your accident lawyer can effectively make sure you get the compensation you deserve.

1. Gather Information - While those who are seriously injured may be unable to take this step, it's important to get all the info you can as soon as you can after your accident. Names of witnesses, insurance information, copies of the accident report or names of the officers responding, and other info can all be given to your accident lawyer. This will give them plenty of tools to start using to get you the restitution that you really deserve.

2. Don't Act Quickly - Technically a 'don't do' step, it's still important that you take the time to act wisely after your accident. In particular, you'll want to avoid accepting settlements from insurance companies until you can ensure that they're fair. Also, don't make posts on social media or share too much information about your accident. Everything that you do can have a direct impact on your case, so be sure to think before you act.

3. Get Medical Attention - Even if you think you don't need it, the fact is that seeking medical attention is still very important for those who are injured in an accident of any kind - or even just involved in an accident. Failure to seek medical attention even if you feel okay means that your lawyer will have more trouble showing that you deserve compensation and proving that different injuries are directly related to your accident. In short, get help as soon as you can.

Along with these three basic steps, there's something else to consider - your lawyer. After an accident, you'll want to talk to a personal injury lawyer to ensure that you can get the help you need for your accident recovery. Making a full recovery includes overcoming personal financial burdens. A single accident can lead to tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills and a struggle to pay existing bills due to missing hours at work.

But when you talk to your personal injury attorney, they'll be able to fight for you. Your attorney will stand up to insurance companies and legal teams who may try to stop you from getting what you deserve. Insurance companies often attempt to avoid fair payment, which in turn means that you have to struggle to get back on your feet.

Our team won't let that happen. We stand up for the injured, not the powerful. We'll fight to make sure you get full restitution for your injuries so you can get back to where you were before an accident occurs. Keep the three points above in mind to help ensure you get the best outcome, and then contact our legal team today to get your free initial consultation and learn more about what we may be able to do for you.


Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
