Charlotte Personal Injury Lawyers
After an accident or injury there are several important steps you will need to take to ensure that your rights or the rights of your loved one are protected. First and foremost, seek medical attention! If you were involved in a vehicle accident, it is not uncommon for pain to occur up to 72 hours after the collision. Our bodies will often use adrenaline to help us get out of dangerous situations and the adrenaline can mask injuries we may have suffered. If you are in doubt, make an appointment to get checked out by your doctor.Interacting with Insurance Companies after an Injury
Shortly after the accident you may be contacted by the insurance company for the party responsible for the accident. The insurance adjusters may seem friendly and helpful but it is important to remember that they are working for the insurance company – not for you. Their goal is to resolve your claim as quickly and as cheaply as possible. If you speak to an adjuster, be careful what you say and how you phrase your responses; these conversations are often recorded and may be used in a way that hurts your claim. If you have already hired an attorney, you can refer the adjuster to your attorney’s office and limit the direct contact you have with the adjuster.How an Injury Lawyer in North Carolina Can Help
