Take These Steps to Process Your Car Accident Claim

Law Offices of Steven Zwick Oct. 16, 2019

Many clients make the mistake of thinking if they have a car accident claim, contacting their insurance company is enough. The fact is just because you have a car accident claim, it does not mean that the insurance company is going to see eye to eye with you on the matter.

Each year there are around 6 million car accidents in the United States. Many of those car accidents result in claims for property damage or personal injury. The cost of car accident claims has skyrocketed and as a byproduct insurance companies are taking closer looks to see where they can cut the fat.

Protecting Your Rights After a Car Accident

You can ask any car accident attorney to share a story with you about a client that helped the insurance company to deny their claim. You can be the worst enemy in your own car accident case.

One of the first things you should do after an accident is to contact a trusted car accident attorney. Many people make the mistake of misspeaking during the interview with the insurance adjuster and other authorities when they have not consulted with a car accident lawyer prior to their interviews.

Getting your accident claim processed with fewer problems starts with having advice from a car accident lawyer. Protecting your rights must be a priority. An experienced attorney can help.

Do These Three Things After a Car Accident

The most important thing to do after a car accident is to ensure your physical health. Whether you feel like you have been injured or not, it is a good idea to get yourself checked out. Many injuries after a car accident do not crop up for a couple of days.

Once you have gotten checked out and are physically stable, it is time to check with a car accident attorney to make an appointment to talk about your car accident claim. This is an important step that will help you navigate your claim.

Be careful of what you say. You do not want to talk about the accident to anyone. It is always better to seek advice from a trusted attorney before you discuss your case with anyone.
