Please remember that your interests and the interests of the insurance company are often not the same. It is actually illegal for a non-attorney (such as an insurance adjuster) to provide legal advice. Yet, very often an insurance adjuster or other insurance company employee will provide advice, or a “tip” and it may not be what is best for you. You should always seek an opinion from a personal injury lawyer, and specifically an Auto Accident Lawyer, to get an unbiased and experienced legal opinion in regards to your case and your rights.
If you have have suffered an injury from the auto accident and require medical treatment, an auto accident attorney at Poder Legal will work to get your resultant and future medical treatment recovered. We will also work to get you ‘general damages’, which include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, and inconvenience associated with the injury. In some cases, you may be entitled to ‘punitive damages’, these are damages which are intended to punish the wrongdoer when their actions were intentional or reckless.
Additionally, in auto accident cases, you are also entitled to recover the damage to your vehicle, as well as the ‘loss of use’ of that vehicle for the time you are without the use of the vehicle because it was damaged.
To try and go this alone, with your insurance company and other parties can be difficult, especially if you don’t know all your rights and are not familiar with the legal workings of these insurance companies. Once we take your case, an auto accident lawyer at Poder Legal will immediately begin gathering the requisite information and immediately inform the insurance companies to direct all communication to our office. We will do everything we can to help alleviate as much your stress as we can so you may concentrate on getting healthy again, both mentally and physically.
If you are in an automobile accident, please do the following:
- Get medical assistance for yourself and make sure everyone involved in the automobile accident has medical assistance if necessary. Often times after an accident, shock or adrenaline will keep the victim from recognizing pain for a time. It’s critical to receive attention for any injury from a medical professional as soon as possible.
- Make a complete record from the scene of the accident. Obtain contact information and insurance information from others involved in the auto accident. If there were witnesses, obtain their names and contact information as well. If you have a camera or smart phone, take pictures of the auto accident. Show damage to cars, positions of cars, any skid marks, and any other items or angles that may be applicable for your legal team and insurance company.
- Be sure to obtain a copy of the police report and/or the accident report. It’s critical for Poder Legal to have as much information as possible to defend your rights to the best of our abilities.
- Do not assume the accident was your fault. Many people feel sorry or guilty when they are involved in accident. However, there are many factors involved in determining fault, many of which you may not be aware. That’s why it is paramount that you speak to an experienced accident lawyer before making any statements or admissions of fault. A statement of blame or responsibility could be held against you and cause irreparable damage your case and rights to compensation.
