If you are injured in a motor vehicle collision, there are helpful steps you can take to assist with your claim for damages against the party who hit you:
It is always helpful to have the police come to the scene of a collision to determine liability.
A photograph preserves valuable evidence. At the scene of a collision—if you are physically able—grab the most available camera and take photographs of the vehicle damage of all vehicles involved, including the party who hit you. If have bruises or other visible bodily damage, take photographs.
Have your injuries documented and evaluated as soon as possible by an emergency room provider or your primary care doctor.
If you must make a statement to an insurance company—including your own—use caution. Insurance companies are not on “your side.”
An experienced attorney can protect you from unscrupulous insurance companies tactics and can help you obtain appropriate compensation for your claim. Insurance companies often try to get victims to accept “low ball” offers of settlement without explaining the risks. Frequently following treatment, medical costs need to be paid or reimbursed. If you accept their offer without help, you might have to pay back more than you received under the settlement.
