Were you involved in a car accident and have questions about what to do next? Here are 3 car accident facts to help you find out how our Phoenix injury lawyers can help protect your rights.
1. Steps To Take After a Car Accident
For our clients that have been injured in motor vehicle accidents, our biggest concern, and it’s always going to be our biggest concern, is their health and well-being. That’s the number one priority. If you’re injured in a motor vehicle accident, the first thing that you want to do is make sure that you seek out proper medical treatment. Go to the hospital. Go to all of your appointments. If they recommend going to a chiropractor, go to the chiropractor. If they recommend physical therapy, go see a physical therapist. Our concern should not be with how long it is going to take to recover money for you or how long it’s going to take for us to get paid. That’s not our biggest issue. Our biggest concern is your health. We will ultimately recover for you, but we want to make sure that you take care of yourself first.
Always after a car accident make sure to get immediate medical care and then call our Phoenix car accident lawyers for a free consultation to learn more.
2. Contacting a Car Accident Attorney
Most of our clients have contacted us immediately following the accident. We get called right away. Some of them have called us while they’re still standing by their car right after the accident occurred asking us what they should do. That’s not always the case. If you’re ever seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident, maybe you’re unconscious, maybe you’re transported to the hospital. My recommendation to you would be to call an attorney as soon as you’re able to. You want to make sure that you call an attorney right away so that they can make sure that you don’t do something that could harm your case.
For example, insurance companies, immediately following an accident, are going to call you. They’re going to try to get statements. That can hurt your case, but then also after the accident, there are certain things that you can use as evidence that can help preserve your case like for example, taking pictures of the vehicles, where the cars are positioned, and pictures of the damage to the vehicles. All those things can really help us when we’re trying to establish liability. I would recommend contacting an attorney as soon as you possibly can after a motor vehicle accident.
If you are unsure when the best time to be contacting a car accident attorney after an accident is, call today for a free consultation.
3. Immediate Medical Care
We often get questions about what you should do first in the event of an accident. Sometimes we get calls from clients who didn’t seek out medical care right from the very beginning. My advice is if you are in a motor vehicle accident, as soon as you see any sign of injury whatsoever, back pain, neck pain, leg pain, you should immediately seek out medical care. It certainly makes it easier for us to recover for those injuries if we can show that the injury is related to the accident. Now, if you’re in that situation where you didn’t seek out care and it did take some time for the injury to manifest, that does not bar your claim.
We would rather you have sought treatment right away, but if you did not, that’s not unusual. That happens from time to time. If that happened to you, seek out counsel from an experienced injury attorney in Arizona.
If you are injured in an accident, not seeking immediate medical care will not impede your claim. Contact our experienced Phoenix slip and fall attorneys for guidance.
