After being injured in an accident, it can be difficult to take the necessary steps toward compensation. Accidents can leave a victim overwhelmed and unsure of what action to take to recover their damages. Medical bills, damage repairs, and other such expenses often leave a victim facing extreme hardship or bankruptcy unless their damages are covered through a claim or a settlement. If you have suffered an accident of any kind, the first step you should take is to hire a San Bernardino personal injury attorney from The Law Offices of Vetchtein & Associates, a Professional Law Corporation.
Once you have a skilled personal injury lawyer on your side, you will have the counsel and guidance you need to obtain fair compensation for your accident. It may be possible for you to negotiate with the other party and obtain a settlement that covers your damages. In other cases, the liable party may refuse to compensate you or may offer less than you deserve, in which case you must file a personal injury claim. Your experienced trial lawyer from the firm will be able to present a strong argument in the event of litigation in order to ensure that you win fair compensation for your accident.
What NOT to Do After an Accident
It is just as important to know what you shouldn't do after an accident as it is to know what you
should do. Whether you have been in a
car accident, have slipped and fallen due to
premises liability, or have been injured by a
defective product, the most important thing is to remain calm. Anger and frustration will only have a negative effect on the settlement process. No one enjoys working with an unpleasant person.
Another thing you should avoid doing is admitting liability. The moment you show any sign that the accident may have been your fault, you lose your chance of establishing the negligence of the other party and obtaining compensation from their insurance. You should also be sure not to sign any type of document before consulting a lawyer, unless it is a police statement or any type of paperwork for your insurance. Otherwise, you may be tricked into signing away your right to compensation.
