Seek Compensation for Your Injuries
After an auto accident, many of our clients come to us feeling overwhelmed. The aftermath of an accident can be confusing, especially when you are dealing with injuries. Additionally, insurance companies and healthcare providers are notoriously difficult to deal with, and you may be left wondering if your necessary medical care will be covered.
If you were injured in an auto accident, you might be entitled to compensation for:
- Emergency medical care
- Hospital stays
- Doctors’ fees
- Prescription drug costs
- Rehabilitation costs
- Expenses associated with a long-term disability
- Lost wages from missed work
- Emotional pain and suffering
- Damaged or lost property
By working with a personal injury lawyer who is experienced in handling accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other motor vehicles, you can rest assured that someone is on your side, helping you seek the compensation you may be entitled to. This financial help is crucial to the healing process and can help you get your life back on track after an accident.
What to Do After an Accident
Whatever the circumstances, remain calm and ensure you are not in danger. Move your car to the side of the rode, if possible, and call the police to file a report. Seek medical attention as soon as you are able, even if you initially feel fine. Some injuries will take time to develop, so it is important that you get checked out by a doctor and follow their instructions to avoid further injury.
If it is safe to do so, take pictures of the scene of the accident along with any damage to your vehicle. Get the information of the other driver, including their insurance information, license plate number, name, and contact information. Get contact details and statements form any witnesses, if possible.
As soon as you are able, contact an attorney to discuss your case. Per the statute of limitations in Tennessee, you only have one year from the date of your accident to file a claim, so contacting a lawyer sooner rather than later is crucial. After one year has elapsed, you may be barred from seeking compensation. Your prompt attention can also help preserve evidence and begin the insurance process. Remember that insurance companies are businesses, and they may try to undervalue or deny your claim to protect their bottom line. Our attorneys can help you get the full compensation you need to recover.
