– So, I wanted to talk about if you’re rear-ended whether you should immediately hire a car accident attorney. The answer is that you most definitely at least wanna talk to an injury attorney. The worst thing you could do is get on the phone and start talking with the insurance companies. So, if you’re in a rear-end accident, first of all, the thing you wanna do is make sure you cooperate with police, tell em what happened. You wanna make sure that if you’re injured bad, you wanna get your medical treatment. But after that, you don’t wanna make any more calls unless you talk to a personal injury attorney. There’s several things that we can do to make sure that you’re maximizing your compensation. The insurance companies, they wanna use your words and typically twist them and use them against you often. So, the first thing we can do is prevent that from happening. We also wanna look at what avenues you may have for compensation, what ways you can get compensated that you may not have known about. So, you may not have realized that if you document your missed work properly, you can get compensated for that. You may not realize that your property damage, anything broken in the vehicle can be compensated for. You may not know what doctors you can go to and which ones work on a lien basis so, there’s just a lot of things that we can start helping you through the process to make sure that you’re not making any initial mistakes that you’ll regret later on. So, in the least, you wanna make a phone call, talk to an attorney about your situation and make sure that you’re not on the phone talking to any insurance companies.
