Common Questions After A Motor Vehicle Accident
Motor vehicle accidents happen fast. They can leave you confused, stressed, and unsure what to do next. At D’Alessandro & Wright, LLC, we are ready to help any way we can after an accident, including answering any questions you may have.
Here are answers to some of the most common questions you might have after a car accident:
Should I see a doctor?
Yes. Even after a minor accident, it is important to seek medical attention. There are many injuries that might show up long after the collision, so it is important to see a medical professional as soon as possible.
It is also important to see a doctor to ensure you have medical evidence for a personal injury claim.
Should I talk to my insurance company?
You need to inform your insurance company that you have been in an accident. However, be careful what you say to your insurance company. They only need the basic information of the accident and your injuries.
You also do not need to accept a quick settlement or sign any paperwork with your agent or adjuster. Speak to an attorney first.
How can a lawyer help?
Recovering from an accident is stressful enough on its own. Dealing with insurance companies and other financial troubles only adds to that stress.
An experienced attorney will stand up to insurance companies and negligent drivers on your behalf to recover your maximum compensation and help ease your stress.
