Personal Injury FAQs

 

What should I do after an accident?

The most important thing you can do after your accident is to seek medical care, even if you don’t “feel” hurt. Many potentially serious injuries present with delayed symptoms. Prompt medical attention is not only the best way to catch and treat your injuries. Additionally, in car accident cases, your PIP policy requires that you seek medical care within 14 days of your injury in order to be eligible for compensation. If possible, you should also collect contact information from those who witnessed your accident and take photos of the scene. You should avoid speaking to insurance claims adjusters until after you’ve spoken to an experienced personal injury attorney.
 
 

It has only been two days since my accident and the insurance company just offered me a settlement. Should I take it?

Insurance companies are often quick to offer a quick or low-ball settlement in order to avoid a big payout. The problem with these quick settlements is that they don’t take into consideration the totality of your damages. Are you going to need further surgeries or other medical treatments in the future to treat the injuries from your accident? Are you going to miss a lot of time from work or be unable to work due to the severity of your injury? It is impossible to know early after an accident what your needs will be. If you accept a quick settlement, you are generally unable to go back later and ask for more money. It is better to have your attorney help you to estimate the value of your case before accepting a settlement offer.
 
 

How can I pay my medical bills while my claim is pending?

In car accident cases, your PIP policy will provide initial compensation for your accident injuries. In other types of accidents, you may be able to use your health insurance or other policies you have available. There may be other options for funding your medical expenses while you are waiting to settle your claim that your attorney can explore with you.
