Car wrecks can be devastating, and not only from a physical injury perspective. Auto accidents cause so many other headaches and frustrations–mental anguish and suffering, the hassle of dealing with insurance companies and law enforcement, the inconvenience of getting your vehicle repaired, and renting another one to take its place temporarily.
The whole process is exhausting and consuming. But Prince George’s County Car Wreck Lawyers at The Lapidus Law Firm are here to help.
What to Do If You’re in a Car Wreck
If you don’t think you are severely injured, the first thing you should do is call 911. Even if it appears to be a minor accident, you want to be sure everything is documented in a police report should you need it later, and you want to prioritize your health and well being.
When calling 911, the dispatcher will most likely ask if you need medical assistance–you should agree to it, even if you’ve suffered what seems to be only a ‘minor’ injury. What seems small could turn out to be something much more severe, so let the medical professionals check your injuries.
What NOT To Do If You’re In A Car Wreck
If there are injuries involved, you mustn’t speak with the other party’s insurance company until you have received a consultation from YOUR personal injury lawyer. If the other driver is at fault, their insurance company will more than likely make a meager offer in hopes that you’ll agree to it so they can wrap up their case.
Always remember–insurance companies do NOT want to pay more than they absolutely have to, even if your medical bills are more than what they’re offering. That’s not how they make money. If the at-fault driver’s insurance company contacts you, put them in touch with The Lapidus Law Firm.
