Get medical assistance
You should first and foremost get medical attention. Even if your injuries don’t look severe, this is still true. Even though they appear to be mild at the time of the accident, many injuries, including brain traumas, can develop into life-threatening conditions.
Receiving medical attention right away can not only save your health, but it will also make it simpler to file a personal injury claim down the road. The insurance company may contend that your injury was not as terrible as you claim or that it was caused by something other than the accident if you wait days or weeks to seek medical attention.
Contact a personal injury lawyer
After receiving medical attention, you must speak with a personal injury attorney. We can assist you in deciding if your situation merits filing a personal injury lawsuit after hearing the specifics of your accident and your injuries. We accept cases on a contingency basis, so you won’t be responsible for paying our fees until we prevail in your legal matter. You are not required to pay us if we lose your case.
Engage your attorney’s team in communication
After you employ us, we will handle a lot of the procedure on your behalf, but we still need your assistance. We will handle all communications with the insurance providers, but we do want your medical records, your version of events, and other supporting documentation. The quicker you react to our team’s inquiries, the faster we can negotiate the best settlement or put together a case to go to trial.
Establish fair compensation
We will work to ensure you receive some sort of recompense for your injuries. For instance, we can fairly readily calculate the medical costs and, if necessary, document any property damage. Other sorts of damages, such as pain and suffering, are more difficult to put a monetary value on.
At The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker, we consult with economic and medical professionals who can not only assist us in determining what is a fair sum to be compensated, but can also give supporting data.
