If you are in an accident of any sort, it is important that you preserve your rights to the fullest extent. Here are some tips that may help:

  • Be careful when discussing the case with the police or your insurance company. Only state what you definitely know and try to avoid speculation. Don't let others put words in your mouth.
  • Do not speak to the other party's insurance company.
  • Attend to your injuries immediately. If you require medical attention, seek it. If you have medical payment coverage on your own insurance it is okay to use it. Follow the doctor's advice.
  • Keep a record of all of your expenses related to the claim. Keep copies of your medical records and bills. Document your lost income, mileage and incidental expenses.
  • DO NOT sign any releases or any documents you don't understand without an attorney's advice.
  • If you have been given a traffic citation, retain an attorney to handle it. Even if you are partly at fault you may be able to recover if the other party is more than 50% liable.

The sooner you have an attorney on your case the more effective he or she can be!
