Report Your Accident
It should be noted that when you get into an accident, particularly that of an auto accident, a police report will be made when they are called to the scene. Insurance companies pay a lot of attention to this police report so it is important for you to be able to get a copy of it. When the police are at the scene, do not say you are to blame for the accident. You do not want an admission of guilt on a police record, especially when you don’t know all of the facts yet.
If you were involved in an accident like a slip and fall at a grocery store, it is essential that you report your accident with the store so that, when your head injury lawyer is trying to prove you deserve justice, they have proof that you got hurt on the premises that you are bringing a claim against.
Seek Immediate Medical Care
When a head injury is left untreated, you can suffer very badly. In some cases, they might want to do tests to see if there is a brain bleed or swelling in the brain. Concussions and TBIs require you to rest and not overexert yourself. The last thing that you want, on top of all of the financial damages you are facing, is to have physical damages that you will never recover from because you did not see a doctor right away. Go to the emergency room or a nearby urgent care center as soon as possible after your accident.
Do Not Talk to Insurance Agents
Our head injury lawyer has a tough time with cases where our client has already given the liable party’s insurance company a statement about the accident. We want to protect you from the insurance company that just wants to keep you from a full financial recovery. When the insurance company has a statement from you, it can be used against you.
They are trained to get you to say things that will reduce the amount of money they give you. If you say something that makes it seem like the accident was your fault, they have that on record now and will use that to reduce your award.
Let your lawyer handle communications with them. Do not give them a statement.
