- Seek Medical Attention As Quickly As Possible: Even if you do not seem injured after being involved in a motor vehicle accident, seek medical attention as quickly as possible. Some injuries, such as those to the brain or spinal cord, are not immediately apparent. Prompt medical attention can ensure these injuries are addressed, and it will also strengthen any injury claim by helping you tie your injuries directly to your accident.
- Do Not Accept A Settlement Offer Without Speaking with an Attorney: Any settlement offer presented to you immediately following your accident will almost assuredly not be sufficient for fully compensating all of your medical expenses or lost income. Not only will this offer most likely not be fair to you, the insurance company can and will use anything you say to them against you in order to reduce the compensation they may owe you.
