Protecting Your Interests After A Car Accident Injury
The most important thing to do if you are injured in a car accident is to see a doctor and follow your doctor’s treatment plan. Your first priority is to recover your health. That can be difficult to do, however, if you do not have medical insurance. Our lawyers can help you obtain the care you need. If necessary, we can refer you to doctors who will provide your care in exchange for a lien on your future recovery from the insurance company of the at-fault driver.
By receiving treatment, you will also create medical files to document your injury claim. Insurance companies will not believe you are injured if you do not receive medical treatment. If you stop going to the doctor for any reason, the insurance company is likely to believe that you are no longer injured.
It’s important not to accept a settlement offer for your personal injury claim until you reach what is known as maximum medical improvement. Otherwise, you will not know how the injury will affect you in the future. Some injuries get better in time, but others can lead to chronic pain and disability. If you try to resolve your case without legal advice and the proper medical treatment, you may not receive enough compensation to meet your future needs.
