Getting in a car accident is one of the scariest things a person can go through. With so much going on in your life, suddenly being struck by another car and feeling the pain, both physical and emotional, that comes along with that can be a very distressing experience. If you have been injured in a car accident, call LeBaron & Jensen for help knowing what to do next. Dealing with an injury can be rough. Here are a few tips for people who are currently going through that pain.
Tip #1: Document Your Experience
In most cases, the police will come to the scene of a car accident and take notes as to what happened that day. However, you shouldn’t depend on the police report to tell you everything that happened. Make sure you do what you can to document the night as you remember it. Take pictures of your car before it was moved from the site of the accident. Take pictures of your own bruises or injuries. Write down what you remember from the event. This information will be very valuable to you later.
Tip #2: Go to the Doctor
You might not know whose insurance is in charge of getting things taken care of as far as injuries go, but if you are in pain, you shouldn’t just wait for someone else to give you the okay to get care. Make sure you take care of yourself as you go about dealing with the car accident aftermath. Save any documents or prescriptions that your doctor might give you because you will most likely be able to get compensation for whatever money you spend, and if the doctor deems you worthy of surgery or other invasive procedures, then you could get compensation for that as well.
Tip #3: Talk to a Lawyer
There are a lot of things that you will have to deal with that might not make sense to you. Call a lawyer who understands personal injury laws. They can give you the help you need to get everything cleared up.
Tip #4: Be Honest
While it might be tempting to try and piece together what happened that night after you hit yourself on the head, there is no good that could come from making up the story. If you don’t remember, tell the insurance people and police representatives that you don’t remember.
Tip #5: Take it Easy
You may want to just go back about your daily life as if nothing had happened, but you need to take care of your injury before you can do that. If you end up hurting yourself even more by neglecting the harm that has come upon you, you may disqualify yourself from a settlement.
