Getting Answers After Your Accident
A car accident can leave you extremely confused about your future and how you will recover from your injuries. Getting the answers you need is not always easy, which is why we at Warhawk Legal are here to answer your questions. Before you come to meet at our Oklahoma City office, here are some answers that can help set you on the path to a better future:
What do I do after the accident?
The steps you take immediately after your accident can drastically help you. After your accident, everyone should take a few critical steps: call an ambulance if medical help is necessary, gather contact information of witnesses, collect the insurance and vehicle information of the other driver, and contact the police.
Do I need to see a doctor?
Even if you do not feel hurt after your accident, you should see a doctor. The resulting medical report creates a benchmark for your health so you can monitor any worsening conditions. A doctor can also look for any hidden life-threatening injuries like a traumatic brain injury.
What do I do if the insurance agency calls me?
When the at-fault driver’s insurance agency calls you with questions, it is likely looking for information that can reduce the compensation it pays you. Do not say anything to an insurance agent without an attorney present. A skilled lawyer can help you avoid saying anything that may jeopardize your claim.
My car still runs; can I drive it?
Unless you had a full inspection of your vehicle, do not drive it. Hidden damages to your vehicle may cause you to suffer a serious injury, which may qualify as only your liability for driving a faulty vehicle.
What kind of damages can I receive for my injuries?
The compensation for your personal injury should cover all of the costs that come with the accident. Common damages include medical expenses, lost income, property damage, and pain and suffering. A skilled attorney can help you secure the fair compensation you deserve.
Do I need an attorney?
An experienced attorney is essential in a compensation claim. We can help you negotiate for compensation that accurately reflects the total cost of your injury, avoid making critical mistakes during the claims process and reduce the time it takes to receive the compensation.
