Steps You Should Take Following Injury in a Car Accident
People involved in a car accident in Utah who have been injured often have many questions about what the steps they should take to ensure they get the proper treatment and compensation for their injuries. That is where Salcido Law Firm comes in to help. Calling and speaking with a Utah Personal Injury Attorney is the first step to getting on the road to resolving your compensation and damages. A list of other necessary steps is provided below.
- Contacting Your Insurance Company. Obviously the first step after speaking with an attorney is to contact your insurance company. However, you should be very careful about how much detail you give your insurance company or especially the other insurance company. You should avoid giving recorded statements without having your attorney there with you.
- Write up all the details you can about the accident. How you believe the other party was at fault, what your injuries were, etc. You should be as detailed as possible about your case and provide your attorney with your client statement.
- Don’t forget to follow up with all recommended medical care. If you doctor refers you to physical therapy or some other type of follow up care, don’t blow it off, you should continue any necessary medical care. Often, the other side in a law suit will point to the fact that you failed to do any recommended medical treatment as a reason for your significant injuries. More than that though, your health and well being come first so take it seriously.
