Actions You Can Take That May Jeopardize Your Auto Accident Case

Don’t Jeopardize Your Auto Accident Case

If you have recently been in an accident, taking the proper precautions to avoid jeopardizing your auto accident case is not likely to be at the top of your list of priorities.  You are probably focusing on healing from any injuries you may have suffered and dealing with insurance companies.  Ironically, if you are taking the proper precautions to protect your case, an auto accident attorney should be taking care of the insurance company for you.

There are a few simple guidelines to follow to avoid jeopardizing your case.  If you do so you are more likely to collect a fair settlement from the insurance company. 

Don’t Make a Statement

Whatever you do, do not make statements to anyone, aside from the police and your doctor, before consulting a car accident attorney.  Giving a statement to an insurance company or others involved in the accident is a huge risk.  Allowing an attorney to broker the conversation with the insurance company is the best way to ensure that you will receive adequate compensation.  Remember, insurance adjusters are trained professionals working to protect the insurance company’s bottom line.  They generally try to settle a case as soon as possible, for as little money as possible.  Let your auto accident attorney in Atlanta ensure that this does not happen to you.

See a Doctor

It is imperative to your health and your case to see a doctor immediately following an accident.  A doctor can determine if you have sustained any injures as a result of the accident.  There are numerous injuries that can be suffered in an auto accident that are not apparent to the naked eye; this is why it is important to see a doctor even if you are not exhibiting any symptoms of an injury.   The doctor will provide documentation of any injuries sustained which will be very useful in your case. 

If you have the knowledge and support of an experienced auto accident attorney on your side, you can relax and begin the healing process.  Be sure to get the experienced legal help you can trust.
