The moments that follow a car wreck can be confusing. You’re hurt, you need help, and you don’t know who to talk to. Your crash was the other driver’s fault, but you aren’t sure what to do next. You’re worried about hospital bills, missing work, and supporting your family.
This is when the Birmingham car accident lawyers at Cory Watson Attorneys can help. The injuries you suffer in a car wreck can be severe and costly. We have fought to get the compensation that victims just like you need to move forward after a serious injury, and our lawyers want to help you, too.
Don’t Trust the Insurance Adjuster
The adjuster’s main goal is to protect the insurance company’s bottom line. Let’s face it — insurance companies are in it for a profit. Your accident costs are not their priority, no matter what their advertisements say. Let Cory Watson Attorneys handle the insurance adjusters for you.
Having seasoned car accident attorneys on your side will protect you from bullying insurance adjusters and help you get the money you need for car repairs, medical bills, lost wages, and compensation for pain and suffering.
Protect Yourself After an Alabama Car Accident
While you can’t change what happened in the car crash, there are several steps you can take to strengthen your auto accident claim:
- File records of the car accident.
Include any photos, videos, and information you may have collected at the scene of the crash.
- See your physician immediately.
Don’t let the insurance adjuster choose a doctor for you – you have the right to choose your own.
- Call your insurance company.
A delay in reporting the car accident can hurt your claim.
- Don’t sign anything for the insurance adjuster.
Insurance companies will sometimes send an adjuster to the scene of an accident to gather information while you are vulnerable.
- Keep a journal detailing how you feel after the accident.
Six or seven months after the accident, it can be difficult to remember how painful simple actions were, like cooking dinner or pulling a shirt over your head.
- Keep receipts and records of expenses.
Documents, such as medical records or receipts for household services, can strengthen your claim.
- Call an experienced lawyer.
