Car, Truck and Auto Accidents
Driving safely requires focused attention to all conditions including weather, construction, other drivers, pedestrians, and traffic signs/signals. However, not all drivers exhibit this required concentration, which can put you and your passengers in danger. Car accidents can result not only in property damage, but bodily injury, pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, and sometimes even death.
If you are in an accident, do not leave the scene of the accident. Call an officer immediately, and give specific details as to how the accident occurred. Should you experience any injuries resulting from the accident, seek medical attention immediately, and be sure to follow-up as necessary with your primary care provider. By doing this, you are providing documentation of your injuries should you wish to pursue a personal injury claim.
Once you have been medically treated, be sure to notify your insurance company of the accident. You can be sure the other drivers’ insurance company will be contacting you within a very short time. We strongly advise you not to give a recorded statement, as insurance adjusters are trained to ask leading questions that benefit their position. Furthermore, never take the first offer of settlement from the insurance company; it is usually intended to placate you instead of fully compensating you for your loss and protecting you from future complications, as insurance companies are out to protect their rights. The personal injury attorneys of Tlusty & Kennedy, S.C. are here to protect your rights. We have many years of experience in effectively pursuing accident claims on behalf of our clients to a successful conclusion.
