What to Do after You Have Been in a Motor Vehicle Accident
Ensuring you and your family know what to do after being involved in a car accident can potentially save you time and be effective protocols to help you when seeking compensation for your injuries and damages. The following are five simple steps to remember after you have been in a car accident:
Step 1: Seek Medical Attention
Victims often resist going to the hospital, even for potentially serious injuries. However, after an accident, you must see a doctor. In addition to protecting your health and well-being, this provides essential documentation to the insurance company and helps prove that your injuries were severe.
Step 2: Contact A Lawyer
The personal injury process is complex, and insurance companies often try to take advantage of people who do not have skilled representation. The attorneys at Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg & Gifford will help you protect your rights, and our skilled legal staff will guide you through the entire process, helping you take the steps necessary to pursue the maximum possible recovery.
Step 3: Investigation
We will thoroughly investigate your claim by locating witnesses, photographing the cars and crash site, and obtaining your medical records. With us, you will always be included in the process, and when we have a clear picture of the extent of your injuries and the challenges you will face in the future, we will file a lawsuit or try to settle your case.
Step 4: Negotiations
Once we have a firm understanding of the crash and your injuries, we will attempt to negotiate a favorable settlement. Many personal injury cases are resolved this way; a skilled attorney can often push for a much better settlement than a victim working alone.
Step 5: Trial
If we are unable to reach an acceptable settlement, we will resolve the issue at trial. The trial process can be lengthy, but it provides victims a chance to prove their case and to recover fair compensation for the suffering they have endured.
After you have been in a car accident, there is a lot to keep track of and many obstacles you will need to overcome. You do not want to go through the process alone and need a team of experts to assist you in navigating the process, especially if your case goes to trial.
Who Is to Blame for Your Car Accident in PA?
Pennsylvania is a no-fault insurance state, which means regardless of who caused the accident, the insurance company will cover damages up to a certain point. While it does not mean that the party at fault is not responsible, the policy aims to prevent parties from using small claims courts to dispute their responsibilities.
