After the Accident
After a Virginia car accident, there are a number of things you can do to protect yourself against overbearing insurance adjusters and others who might try to take advantage of you during your claim. The following guidelines should help you protect your rights.
Don’t sign anything from an insurance company or adjuster without first talking to the experienced auto accident attorneys at The Barrera Law Firm, PLLC. The insurance adjusters are experienced in denying claims, and may ask leading and misleading questions whose only purpose is to damage your claim, and deny you the compensation you deserve.
Take pictures of the accident and wreckage, if you’re able. Almost every cellphone now has a camera. There is no excuse for not having photographs. Make sure your side of the story is told and take photos. They will be very helpful in any Virginia auto accident lawsuit, and may actually be the evidence that causes the insurance company to want to settle, or causes the jury to find in your favor
Immediately visit a doctor. Delays in treatment will only allow the insurance company to claim that you were not hurt or injured. Go to your own doctor. You have the right to choose your own physician. Keep records of all the treatment you have received, medical costs, the medications prescribed, and follow your doctor’s advice.
Keep a journal. It will be your personal record of what happened both during and after the accident and will detail all the physical consequences of someone else’s negligence and its long term effects. Journals help when insurance adjusters try to claim that you are exaggerating the pain.
