Let a Sacramento Personal Injury Attorney Protect Your Rights to Compensation
Every year there are over 500,000 accident victims hospitalized because of car wrecks. Because of these accidents medical and property damages add up to almost $160 billion a year. Many of these car crash victims are not aware that they can file an accident injury lawsuit against the party responsible for the accident and might be able to get compensation for their injuries.
California injury law can be very complicated and should not be taken lightly. In most cases it can be very beneficial to hire a Sacramento accident injury attorney to protect your rights if you are a victim of a car crash.
Here are some of the most critical things to do after a car accident so you protect your rights:
- Get a Police report to establish the details of your accident claim
- Get the name and phone numbers of all accident witnesses
- Record the other drivers insurance card details, driver’s license, car license numbers
- Take photos from many angles of all vehicles involved in crash damaged or not
- Contact your insurance company to report your accident
- Visit your doctor or emergency room to make sure you are not injured
- Always retain records of your doctor’s report and injury diagnosis
- Contact an injury attorney to protect your rights
Did you know that even if you are responsible for a car accident you may be entitled to fair compensation. Don’t be afraid to ask a licensed accident injury attorney in Sacramento for advise after your car crash. A good attorney will be able to help you build a strong case so you will be able to get compensation for medical costs, lost income, and pain and suffering.
The responsible driver’s auto insurance company might offer you a quick settlement, but be careful, as in most cases they will offer you low settlement so you take the money and drop any rights to future compensation. Don’t make one of the most common mistakes by not completely realizing the full extent of your injuries before you accept an accident injury settlement. A Sacramento accident attorney might be able to get you much more money for your accident injuries. Never rush into doing anything until you get expert legal advise.
