Steps to Take After Being in a Crash

If you are in a car accident, there are a few steps you can take that will help you stay safe as well as help your case if you choose to pursue legal action. Keep reading for a few tips on what to do.

If you were already in an accident and you didn’t take these steps, don’t worry – a Gwinnett County car accident lawyer from Rafi Law Firm can still help you.

The first step you should always take after getting in a car crash is to move your vehicle to a safer location. If you get into an accident in the middle of an intersection or on a busy road or highway, your car blocking the roadway could cause another accident.

If your car is drivable, move it to the shoulder of the road or into a parking lot. If you are unable to safely drive your car because your car is too damaged or you are injured, stay in your car and do not get out until the police and/or an ambulance arrive.

Common Car Accident Injuries

There are many types of injuries that can occur as a result of an accident, but several are common for victims of car crashes. If you find yourself injured after your car accident, you may have sustained one of these common types of injuries:

Whiplash usually happens at the moment of impact. When you are driving and suddenly stop, your head will be thrown back and then forward because of inertia.

Whiplash is most common in rear-end collisions. Whiplash and other neck injuries can range from mild to severe and victims will usually recover. These injuries can result in neck and shoulder pain and may be treated with pain medication, ice, and physical therapy.

Why It’s Important to Hire an Attorney After an Accident

Your accident might seem like something that can be resolved smoothly without legal assistance, but by hiring a lawyer, you are saving yourself from a lot of trouble and financial hardship. Just because you want to pursue legal action against a negligent driver doesn’t make you “sue-happy.” This is a common misconception; courts don’t award compensation to just anyone. Yo have to prove that you suffered harm because of someone else’s wrongdoing. You must have evidence and a valid case.

By holding a negligent party accountable for their actions, you’re helping keep dangerous drivers off the road, which can help prevent more injuries and deaths.

Here are just a few more ways that you can benefit from hiring a car accident attorney.

The most common mistake people make is trusting their auto insurance companies to have their best interest at heart.

Many insurance companies exhibit predatory behavior such as low-balling you with unfair offers and tricking you into paying way more than you should. A car accident attorney can help protect you from big insurance companies’ tricks. We will handle all communication with your insurance company, which helps you in several ways.

First of all, it eliminates the risk of you accidentally saying something about the accident that allows them to deny you coverage or give you less coverage for the accident. Second, it saves you from falling for any low-ball offers. When we communicate with the insurance company, we are looking out for your best interest and using our experience to detect when they are not treating you fairly.

Another reason that you should hire an attorney after an accident is that we represent you and only you. Whether we are facing your insurance company, the insurance company of the other driver, or the other driver themselves, we will be looking out for what is best for you.

When you work with a Gwinnett County car accident lawyer from Rafi Law Firm, you will be taken care of. We genuinely care about you getting the best treatment possible for your injury and making your life as easy as possible in the wake of your accident. Your accident and injury are stressful enough – let us take care of the legal side so you can focus on getting better.

The most important reason you should hire a car accident attorney is because a good lawyer will help you win the maximum amount of compensation available. Without a lawyer, you might not even realize that you can be compensated and lose out on the money you deserve.

When it comes to compensation, victims are paid in damages. Damages are essentially payments made to the victim of the accident for the trouble that the accident has caused them. There are two categories of damages: economic damages and non-economic damages.

Economic damages serve to compensate the victim for financial burdens of the accident and injuries. Examples of this include medical bills, lost wages, and loss of earning potential.

Injuries come with a steep price tag – emergency room bills, ambulance bills, follow-up doctor visits, medications, and medical devices are just a few of the many types of medical bills that can get very expensive, very quickly.

Luckily, a good lawyer will be able to help you recover compensation for these things in damages.

The same goes for recovering damages related to income and wages. If you were out of work with an injury and missed wages, or if your injury is preventing you from being able to make as much money as you used to, you can recover for these things.

Non-economic damages exist to compensate the victim for hardships that are not financial in nature but are byproducts of the accident. An example of this is pain and suffering or emotional distress.

A car accident attorney will examine your case and help you to find all the damages you deserve and help you win the maximum amount of compensation for those damages.
