BOOM! You are sitting quietly at a red light when in a second your life changes forever because of a distracted driver.
Nobody plans on getting in an accident. But what you do immediately after can affect you for the rest of your life. You have some important decisions to make. Where do I get medical care? How do I get my car fixed? Should I hire an attorney?
I'm giving three reason why you SHOULD hire an attorney.
1. The insurance company (yours or theirs) tries to "settle" with you before you have had an MRI or have seen a doctor.
We have seen patients that get a "great offer" from an insurance company before they get proper medical diagnostic testing. After the testing was done, their condition was much worse than anticipated and they needed more medical attention which they could no longer afford because they had already settled with the insurance company. Don't take a settlement offer from your insurance company until you have seen a doctor, had all the proper diagnostic testing, and consulted with an attorney.
What if it is "just a fender bender?" Studies have shown that more often than not, more damage is done to your body at lower speeds such as 5 mph than accidents at high speeds. A fender bender is all the more reason to get checked out quickly.
2. You have pain or anxiety you didn't have before. You are worried how this will affect your future. How will you pay for all the medical bills? Car repair? Lost wages? Future employment?
These are all questions that the attorney can answer for you. You don't have to worry about them anymore. Let them take care of it. You should focus on your health and getting your life back to normal.
3. You want to focus on getting your health and life back. You don't want to be dealing with long phone calls, paperwork, and deadlines.
Who likes a good long phone call that results in nothing? Or how about filling out confusing forms and paperwork and wondering if you did it right? Save that for the attorney and doctors that are familiar with accident cases.
