Automobile Accidents

We see lots of different types of accidents in the course of practice.

Automobile accidents are some of the most common types of accidents we see. When you are involved in an automobile accident certain types of insurance automatically trigger themselves. There is a type of insurance for repairing the vehicle, there is insurance for your medical bills and lost wages while you treat and there is insurance for your permanent injuries, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering and emotional distress.

The first thing to do when you are in an automobile accident is call the police. If you are at all injured do not refuse medical care even if it involved an ambulance ride to a hospital. Any delay in your treatment will likely be used against you whether it is justified or not. The second thing to do is call your own insurance company. You are obligated to notify them of your claim. After those two calls, its time to contact an attorney.
