2) Mistakes To Avoid After a Car Accident
One of the most common mistakes that people make when they have an auto accident in Virginia is they wait too long. We always tell people that it’s in your best interest to reach out to an attorney as soon as possible so they can guide you as to your next steps. People often put off treating their injuries, too. They think to themselves, “I’m not that badly hurt. I don’t need to go to a doctor.”
When they have that mindset, it can hurt their case. Insurance companies are looking for any reason to not pay you. One of the most common reasons is a gap in treatment. Insurance companies are looking to make sure that they only pay you for injuries that you sustained in your accident. If you were involved in a motor vehicle accident and you wait a couple months, an insurance company is thinking to themselves, “How do we know those injuries are the result of the accident? Why should we pay this person?” To make sure that you don’t make a similar mistake, reach out to our office as soon as possible so that we can guide you in the right direction.
3) Car Accident Insurance Investigation
You were just involved in an auto accident and you want to know what to do next. You’re probably getting a lot of phone calls from insurance companies trying to get you to settle. People are always asking us if they should speak to the insurance company or not. We always tell people that you want to talk to an attorney first to determine what your obligations are to the insurance company. Insurance companies ask you questions, then wait for you to make a mistake. The last thing that you want to do is do say something that’s going to harm your case. You should always reach out to an attorney as soon as possible so they can guide you to the next steps of what you should do.
