While an attorney is going to do everything that they can to help you win your accident case, it is always a good idea to take steps to make that task a bit easier for the attorney. Listed below are just two of the many ways in which you can help your attorney win your accident case.
See A Doctor As Soon As You Are Able
The most important step that you can take is to see a doctor as soon as you are able, mostly because if you delay in any way when it comes to seeing the doctor it can send a message to the insurance companies that your injuries were not very severe. Additionally, when you see the doctor, make sure that you bring up every single ache and pain that you are now experiencing after the accident so that there is an actual written record as to the severity of your injury and condition. If you don't bring this up to the doctor, there is a chance that if you bring this up in court that the insurance companies will attempt to claim those injuries or aches and pains are not a result of the accident as they were not reported to your doctor.
Do Not Speak To Any Insurance Companies Before You Hire An Attorney
Another major step to take to help your attorney with your accident case is to avoid speaking to any insurance companies before you hire an attorney. This includes both your insurance company and the insurance company representing the individual that was on the other side of the accident.
The reason for this is that if you speak to an insurance company without any representation, there is a chance that they may attempt to badger you or manipulate you into admitting fault or misspeaking to the point where they are able to get ammunition that they can use to have your case thrown out or avoid having to pay for your claim. However, if you hire an auto accident attorney before you speak to any insurance companies, the attorney can actually advise you as to what to say and may even be able to handle all communications between you and all of the involved insurance companies.
