How To Protect Your Legal Rights After A Berkeley Personal Injury Accident
Protecting your legal rights after an accident is crucial to help you receive the compensation for your injuries which are entitled to.
Our Top-Rated Legal Team is available to help you protect your rights, and recover the compensation that you deserve.
These are the 8 key steps to take to protect your rights after an accident:
Document the Accident Scene and Your Injuries: Take as many detailed photographs of the accident scene and any obvious injuries as possible. A single photograph may ultimately help prove liability in your case.
Call The Police: Dial 911 and summon the Police to the accident scene. The Police will investigate the accident and write a Police Report. It is best to note the responding officer’s name and badge number.
Do Not Admit Fault: Never admit fault in any accident, even if you initially think you are at fault. Accident victims are often traumatized immediately after an accident. You may ultimately not be at fault when the accident is investigated. Erroneously admitting fault can damage your personal injury case and any potential financial compensation.
Do Not Discuss the Accident with any Other Parties Involved: At fault parties may try to convince you not to call the Police or report the accident. They may say they will pay for your damages, only to change their story afterward and blame you for causing the accident.
Obtain The Names of Witnesses: Locating and obtaining contact information for witnesses who saw the accident occur can be extremely helpful in proving liability and recovering compensation for your injuries.
Seek Medical Attention at the Scene of The Accident: Accident victims are often traumatized at the scene, with a high amount of adrenaline in their system due to the extreme stress caused by the accident. Therefore, it is best to accept immediate medical treatment at the accident location and be taken directly to a hospital emergency department for evaluation. Often time’s your injuries may not be immediately apparent, yet they may become more pronounced over time.
Complete All Medical treatment: It is central to your personal injury case that you complete all of the prescribed medical treatment. An ongoing medical diagnosis, ongoing medical reports, and ongoing medical treatment for your injuries are central to your bodily injury claim.
Hire An Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer: Insurance companies are not there to advocate for fair and just compensation for your injuries. It’s just the opposite. Insurance companies have a team of attorneys and claims adjusters who focus on minimizing your injuries and paying out as little as possible to settle your claim. Therefore, attempting to negotiate with an insurance company on your own is highly unwise, and may result in a smaller settlement or your claim being denied completely. Hiring a skilled personal injury lawyer will ensure that your claims are fully pursued by an expert with deep knowledge of the law. Claims handled by experienced personal injury lawyers often resolve for far higher settlement amounts than those of individuals who attempt to represent themselves.
When Should I Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer?
It is always best to talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer right after the accident immediately after tending to your injuries. A skilled personal injury lawyer will give you sound legal advice on your accident case, investigate your accident, and position your case for the best possible outcome.
