Find Out If You Have A Claim
If you have been injured in an auto accident, you may be confused about what you should do. Of course, the first thing you should do is get prompt medical attention. Never underestimate the injuries that an auto accident can cause, even if you don’t initially see an injury. Whether you file an insurance claim or move into the legal process, having legitimate documentation of your injuries is important.
The next thing you should do is contact an auto accident attorney. If your injuries were caused – even partially – by someone else’s negligence, then you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim and pursue compensation for your losses. Successful personal injury claims may include compensation for damages, such as:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
The damages that you can pursue in a personal injury lawsuit will depend on the facts of your case.
