What should I do immediately after my accident?
If you haven’t yet taken these steps, please do so as soon as you possibly can:
My injuries aren’t that bad, can I refuse medical attention?
It is absolutely vital that you do not refuse any medical attention from on-scene medical responders. Even if you think your injuries are not extensive, you could be putting yourself in a very tough situation. Your shock could be masking the pain of your injuries and then later when you realize the severity, you might not be able to get the settlement you’re actually entitled to. If you refused medical attention, the insurance company can see that as your affirmation that, since your injuries weren’t significant enough to receive medical care, they aren’t significant enough to receive a settlement. It’s also important that you see your own doctor as well to provide an independent review of your injuries. Once you’ve received medical attention, a Memphis, TN car accident lawyer can help you explore your legal options.
Well, how much is my case worth?
The answer to this question really depends on the specifics of your case. There are a few different types of damages that you can seek to recover when filing your claim, such as loss of wages, medical expenses, property damage, and even pain and suffering. Consult with a Memphis, TN car accident lawyer about what you can reasonably expect to recover, as well as their estimation of what your case might be worth.
