Grover Law Firm: Your Rights to Recovery after an Accident or Injury

By  0 Comments

Q: What do I do if I am in a car accident?
A: The first step is to call the police or 911, if anyone is injured. Even if the accident is minor, this is an important step! Do not admit fault or give any recorded statements until you have spoken to an attorney. Before you leave the scene, make sure you get all parties’ and witnesses’ contact information and take pictures of everything. After the accident, keep records of your pain, medical treatment and expenses. Seeking medical treatment is extremely important after an accident. Getting a thorough assessment by your doctor, the emergency room, or an urgent care facility can help identify any problems that have arisen from the collision. Another important step is contacting your insurance company as soon as possible and letting them know the details of the accident so they can start building a claim for you. In addition to the protection this creates, failing to promptly file a claim could put your right to get compensated at risk. Your attorney deals with the legal issues while you focus on recovery. 

 Q: Why should I hire an injury lawyer?
A: Hiring an injury attorney puts someone on your side to advocate for you so that you get maximum compensation and not get taken advantage of by an insurance company. Without help, navigating the injury claim process is very difficult and confusing, and a single misstep can cost you thousands of dollars and months of time.

An injury attorney specializes in negotiations with insurance companies and will work hard to secure your maximum settlement. The settlement process is a maze of paperwork, bills and potential pitfalls that can carry on for months or even years. Leave this to the experts while you focus on recovery! 

Ultimately, if you’re not able to settle, you’ll be forced to file a lawsuit and you’ll need an experienced lawyer to fight for your rights. If you have been injured due to no fault of your own, an injury attorney helps you get the compensation you deserve.
