What To Do Immediately After A Car Wreck

If you have recently been involved in a vehicle collision, get medical help as soon as possible, even if you feel that you have not sustained serious injuries. Sometimes, devastating injuries are hidden or masked by the shock and adrenaline you experience at the scene of the crash. Getting help from a medical professional will give you a clear picture of the right diagnosis and prognosis for your conditions.

The next critical step to take is to notify your insurance company. Many people learn quickly that their insurance company is not looking out for your best interests. This is the reason it is also important to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney soon after your accident. Your attorney can help you network with the insurance company and the insurance company for the other driver.

At the Joubert Law Firm, APLC, we will help you understand your rights and responsibilities following a car accident. If the insurance company suggests a settlement offer that is far too low for the injuries you have suffered, your lawyer can take the next step in order to protect you and respond with a counteroffer.

Your Life May Dramatically Change After A Crash

Many people find the implications of a vehicle collision influence them for years after an accident. Some people will still suffer chronic pain decades later even with the help of advanced medical treatments and medication. Although each vehicle collision is unique, some of the common injuries seen in these types of crashes include:

  • Broken bones
  • Fractures
  • Burns
  • Lacerations
  • Scars and disfigurement
  • Internal bleeding
  • Organ damage
  • Neck, back and spine injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries

If you are concerned about the stressful and anxiety-provoking situations of trying to work with an insurance company who is delaying or denying your claim or navigating the complex treatment procedures associated with your conditions from the collision, the last thing you need to worry about is how your legal case is unfolding.

At the Joubert Law Firm, APLC, our experienced team works hard on your behalf. We will evaluate all evidence, reconstruct the scene of the collision, consult with medical expert witnesses if necessary, prepare your case for trial, review settlement offers and respond. We will aggressively represent you at the trial.
