Car accidents are at a minimum startling and at worst traumatic and life-changing events. After a car accident, you may receive calls from insurance companies and even law enforcement within the first hours and days after the accident. The days and weeks immediately following a car accident are critical to the proper handling of your case. It is important that your attorney move quickly to collect and preserve evidence about how the accident happened, obtain witness information, document the scene of the accident, the vehicles involved, interact with law enforcement, and if necessary hire appropriate experts. A promptly hired high-quality personal injury attorney should be able to handle the insurance company inquiries and help you focus on the most important thing, which is getting the treatment and care you need to recover from your injuries.

If you hire an attorney after a car accident, it will allow the law firm to communicate with not only your own insurance carrier but the insurance company for the other driver or drivers involved in the incident. Insurance companies will often contact you on the day of the accident and want to take your recorded statement. You are not under any obligation to give a recorded statement to the other driver’s insurance and the full scope of your injuries and what happened in the accident may not yet be known to you. Do not give a statement without talking to a qualified attorney.

In addition to interacting with law enforcement and insurance companies, your attorney will help you to obtain the medical treatment you need including working with public health benefits programs, private health insurers, and directly with medical providers in order to get you started on the healing process.
