When you've been in a car accident, there will be a million things racing through your mind at once. Are you okay? Are the other people involved okay? Is your car okay? Take care of yourself and the people around you after an accident first and foremost. Get the medical attention that you need, but before you do anything else, call a car accident lawyer. You may think calling a lawyer early on in the post-accident process will be a hassle, but that's not true. Waiting to call a car accident lawyer too late will actually be much more a hassle in the long run.
That's because the insurance companies will be contacting you as soon as possible after your accident, and they will be pressuring you to settle. Once you've settled with them, it's very hard to get any additional compensation for injuries later on. That's especially troubling when many times injuries from auto accidents don't manifest for days or even weeks after the accident, after you'd already settled and when you have no other choice but to pay for those medical expenses out of your own pocket. When you have the right car accident lawyer on your side, they can help you fight the insurance companies to get the compensation that you deserve.
