Common Car Accident Injuries
After the accident, you may have a lot of adrenaline running through your body and it can be very tricky to figure out just how badly injured you are. You should never assume that you are fine and go about your life. You should seek medical attention as soon as possible so that you can get your injuries checked out. You do not want to run the risk of worsening your condition by ignoring the injuries. Also when you ignore your injuries for whatever reason, the insurance company could tell you that your case is not strong enough. You want documented proof that you were injured because of this car accident and going to the doctor to start getting treatments will be beneficial for your health and your case. Here are some of the most common car accident injuries.
- Broken bones and fractures
- Tendon, nerve, or tissue damage
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
If you have been seriously injured after your car accident, you need to get to a doctor as soon as possible. Your health is the highest priority. You need to make sure you treat yourself like a priority and never ignore the pain you’re in. Tell the doctor about everything that is bothering you so that you don’t miss an injury that might turn into something serious. If you need surgery, have that surgery. If you need physical therapy, have it. We will make sure you are compensated for all of it.
Best First Step for a Successful Claim
To have a successful claim, you should collect evidence at the scene of the accident. If you are too injured to do it yourself, you can call on someone to come do it for you. You want to get photos and videos of all vehicles involved in the accident and any debris or tire marks on the road. Anything that looks like it is important to the accident should be recorded. You also should talk to the witnesses and get their contact information. An important tip to remember is not telling anyone it was your fault. You might think it was, but later find out it wasn’t. For now, don’t talk about who caused the accident. Let your attorney handle that later.
Dealing with the Insurance Company
A huge reason why you shouldn’t talk about fault right after the accident is that the insurance company will take any opportunity to try to throw out your case. If you said to their insured that it was your fault, they will use that against you. They will also call you shortly after the accident and try to get a recorded statement from you about the cause of the accident. You should never give them any statements. They will use your words against you. Instead, tell them that they need to talk to your lawyer.
How to Get Full Compensation
A large part of getting the fullest amount of compensation is avoiding getting blamed for the accident. By hiring an attorney early on, they will make sure you are protected from the bullying tactics of the insurance company. In Arizona, if you get blamed for the accident, you can still receive compensation, but it will be reduced by the percent of fault you share. Fortunately, you won’t be barred unless you were the sole cause of the accident, but that rarely happens. We will make sure we advocate for the best amount of compensation possible.
