Three things people fail to consider after a car accident

Whether it's a minor fender bender or a serious wreck, an auto accident can incur painful, often long-lasting injuries. For many, treatment consists of a quick trip to the hospital for cuts, scrapes or a case of whiplash. For others, serious accident injuries may require multiple surgeries, months of rehabilitation or may even result in permanent disability.

Regardless of the scale or scope of your accident injuries, it's important to consider both the immediate and long-term impact of the incident. Some questions you should ask include: Are you sure the settlement offered by the insurance company is enough to cover your damages? Who will cover your medical expenses if you start noticing pain after you've accepted a settlement? Who can help you negotiate with the insurance company if you think you deserve additional compensation?

These and other questions can be answered by an experienced personal injury lawyer. In addition to helping you obtain treatment and pursue compensation, your attorney can remind you to consider the following:

  • The insurance adjuster isn't your friend - Although your insurance adjuster will arrive quickly and act like your friend, the truth is that he or she works for the insurance company. Although the initial settlement offer may appear generous, your attorney can help ensure you receive a fair and just amount of compensation for your injuries.
  • Don't rush your recovery - If you fail to consider the long-term effects of your injuries, you could be left paying the bills for accident-related ailments that arise after you've accepted a settlement. A lawyer can put you in touch with medical professionals who can determine whether or not your injuries may have lasting consequences.
  • You don't have to say sorry - After an accident, it's best to say as little as possible. There's no need to start apologizing or explaining why you believe the accident happened. Your attorney can ensure you don't say anything that may compromise your claim.

A car, truck, motorcycle or other type of auto wreck can forever alter your life. By obtaining a personal injury lawyer who is focused on you, your recovery and your long-term health, you can better protect yourself immediately after the accident and in the years to come.
