Knowing what to do after an auto accident is critical to your safety. If you are seriously injured, taking the proper steps better ensures you will be compensated for your injury.
After an accident, you should seek medical attention. Even if you feel okay, you may have suffered an injury that is not immediately apparent. A thorough medical examination creates a record of how the accident affected your physical wellbeing.
During this time, you will probably be contacted by the other driver’s insurance company. Do not discuss your injuries or the facts of the accident.
As soon as possible, you should contact our attorneys at Harvey L. Walner & Associates. We can investigate your accident and determine who is at fault for your injury. You have a right to pursue compensation if the other driver was negligent and caused your injury as a result. In some cases, a driver is not at fault at all. The malfunctioning or faulty components of a defective vehicle can lead to catastrophic auto accidents and injuries.
Our experienced attorneys will listen to the details of your case free of charge and inform you of appropriate next steps.
