What to Do After an Accident

What to Do After an Accident

Wrongfully injured? Here's what to do.

If you are injured in an accident that causes you injury, you need to consider the option of filing for a personal injury claim as soon as possible. Many people avoid doing so because they are unsure if their case was significant enough to warrant a claim or maybe they are afraid because they think they may be partially at fault. Even if you are unsure as to the status of your accident, you can never know what you are entitled to until you seek help from a personal injury claim professional. There is also a limited amount of time for you to be able to file a claim.

This is called the statute of limitations, and in California you have two years from the date of the injury in which you can file in most cases.

This is what you should do, but there are also things you should not do after an accident. Don't ever admit to liability until you seek legal help. A personal injury lawyer will be able to inform you of your rights. You are in no way obligated to admit any sort of liability regarding your accident, because doing so could harm your chances of recovery. Also, if you don't understand your insurance policy then don't submit anything to the insurance company after your accident until you obtain legal help. A legal professional will be able to fully explain the incident and your insurance policy to you so that you don't get cheated out of the compensation that is rightfully yours. Only a personal injury attorney can determine what a fair compensation for your personal injury accident is.
