Take Action To Protect Your Claim
These are some of the things you should do following a car accident:
Get medical care ASAP — We cannot stress this enough. Even if you feel fine, you may have suffered serious injuries. This is especially the case with head injuries, because the true effects of a concussion may not reveal themselves for some time after the accident.
Report the accident to the police — Describe what happened in purely factual terms. Do not admit fault or responsibility for the accident.
Get the name, phone number and insurance company of the other driver — If you were struck by a hit-and-run driver, we may still be able to obtain compensation for you from your uninsured motorist coverage.
Talk to us before you call your insurance company — In a free consultation, a lawyer can explain how we can help you. We can also begin the legal process and take measures to protect your ability to claim compensation.
Don't make any statement to insurance companies or sign any document — Insurance company representatives are specially trained to gather information that can be used to defeat claims. We will protect your rights and handle all dealings with insurance companies and other aspects of your case.
Follow the instructions of your doctor — If you stop taking medications before the doctor tells you to or fail to follow other instructions of your doctor, the insurance company could use this as evidence that you no longer need medical care.
Focus on getting better — Let us take on the burden of obtaining compensation for you. Trust Law Offices of Burch & Lockhart, to do everything we can to succeed for you.
