Car crash injuries can be very serious, but you might not feel like your injuries need medical care right away. Instead, you might be ready to just get home and rest. It is imperative that you think carefully about what you do when you are hit by a car because the steps that you take can affect your ability to seek compensation later.
It is possible that the adrenaline and shock of the accident are masking the signs of an injury. It is also possible that you could have an injury that isn’t going to show up right away. Whiplash and some brain injuries fall under this umbrella. The possibility that you suffered from something like that is one reason why you need to seek medical care right away after a car crash.
We understand that you are probably shaken up, but you need to start preserving your ability to seek compensation from the moment the crash happens. Don’t ever admit fault or apologize for the accident, even to the police officer who writes the report or anyone else at the scene.
Remember that you have time limits that apply to personal injury claims. The time limits that are set by the law are firm. Once these limits pass, you aren’t going to be able to do anything to try to recover the financial damages or other damages from the crash.
Seeking compensation is a serious undertaking that must be handled appropriately. We can help you get your case prepared and presented so that your journey toward seeking compensation is moving forward.
