Got in a car accident? Avoid these three costly mistakes

| Sep 12, 2018 | Uncategorized

A car accident is a surprising event that throws a huge wrench into your life. Suddenly, you need to deal with vehicle damage, personal injuries and insurance communications. The aftermath of a motor vehicle collision can feel overwhelming.

No matter what you are feeling, it is imperative to focus as much as possible. The more diligent you are at completing the right tasks, the faster you may recover medically and financially. Here are some big mistakes to avoid and tips on what to do instead.

First mistake: Not seeking medical help

If you do not have any noticeable injuries at the scene of the crash, you may not necessarily need to call an ambulance. However, you should always get checked out by a doctor – either your primary physician or urgent care. A medical professional will be able to detect any injuries that may not be obvious. A prompt diagnosis will help your personal injury case.

Second mistake: Not getting legal advice

If you are seeking compensation from the insurance company, you may quickly experience intimidation or unresponsiveness. Dealing with insurance adjusters can be frustrating. Plus, you may encounter difficulty quantifying your damages to determine how much you deserve. 

Third mistake: Taking the first offer

If you hear from the insurance company and it is about a settlement, you may initially feel excitement. You may feel relieved that you are getting money this quickly and want to accept it right away. However, the first offer is usually not nearly enough to cover the extent of your financial and emotional losses. Make sure you carefully consider each offer and negotiate for what you deserve.

It is normal to experience frustration after a car crash, but do not let your emotions deter you from doing what you need to do to win your case.
