If you or someone you know was in a motor vehicle or car accident and sustained injuries it is very important you contact an experienced personal injury attorney right away. Often times things you do or say in the days following an accident can have a large impact on your case. Insurance adjusters know this and they will likely contact you and ask you to make a statement. NEVER make any statements to an insurance adjuster regarding injuries sustained in a car accident without consulting a lawyer first.
Injuries sustained in a car accident may not become immediately apparent. It is very common for someone to not even know they are immediately hurt after an accident, especially with a soft tissue injury. In some cases, it may take a few days or even longer for an injury to start causing symptoms like pain, stiffness, or loss of range of movement.
If you are injured in an auto accident, treating your injuries can be extremely expensive. A trip to the emergency room, surgery, doctor’s office visits, physical therapy, chiropractors, prescriptions, and many other treatments cause your bills to pile up. Without an experienced attorney fighting for your interests throughout this process, it is very easy to be taken advantage of, and you could end up being on the hook for hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical expenses.
