Protect Your Right To Claim Compensation
As the victim of a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your financial losses and pain and suffering. But compensation will not come automatically. To protect your rights and legal options, you should do the following:
Get medical care — You should see a doctor and follow that doctor’s instructions. If you fail to follow these instructions or prematurely discontinue your course of treatment, the insurance company could use this to deny your claim or pay less than you deserve.
Obtain advice from an experienced auto accident lawyer — A lawyer at our firm can review your case and discuss the potential value of your claim.
Discuss your accident only with your doctor, lawyer or your own insurance agent — You should never discuss your case with the other driver’s insurance company.
Don’t agree to a settlement without the advice of an attorney — Insurance companies are skilled at making settlement offers that sound good, but which actually pay accident victims less than they deserve.
Don’t sign an insurance company check before talking with a lawyer — By signing a check, you may be giving up your right to further compensation. Applebaum & Associates can advise you.
