Question:

What should I do after being injured in a car accident?

Answer:

After a Car AccidentThe other day I got a call from somebody who had been in a car accident. They were injured and wanted to know what to do. The first thing I told them was they should go seek medical treatment immediately. I’m not a doctor, and they should listen to that doctor and follow the doctor’s orders so they have the best chance at a full recovery. If they don’t recover completely, at the very least they’ll recover to the maximum of their ability. The next thing they need to do is hire an attorney as soon as possible. Evidence gets lost and witnesses forget things. An attorney is there to represent your best interest, protect that evidence, and investigate the matter.

Lastly, a person needs to hire the right attorney. The right attorney is an attorney who practices personal injury law, and doesn’t just do a little bit of everything, but has personal injury as large part of their practice, which should include car accidents. Beyond that, your attorney needs to be a trial attorney. Trial attorneys work cases differently, and that helps get you the best result possible. If, for whatever reason, you’re unable to settle your claim for a fair amount, at the very least you’ll have an attorney who is ready to go to trial and represent your best interest.
