Frequently Asked Questions
We know that for many people, this may be their first car accident, or at least the first car accident where serious physical or emotional injuries occurred. We also know that many of you have never taken legal action or worked with insurance companies to get the compensation you deserve. That’s where we come in. We are here to answer all of your questions, explain your rights, and work with you every step of the way to get your life back on track.
The days and weeks following an accident are usually a whirlwind. Along with dealing with repairing your vehicle and potentially being in and out of the hospital for treatment or surgeries, car accidents can take a serious emotional toll on your and your family. We know you’re going to have a lot of questions and we are here to help answer your questions and ease your mind. Below are the answers to some questions we get a lot from car accident victims looking to take legal action.
What should I do following an accident if I’m hurt?
Whether your injuries are immediate or don’t surface for days or weeks afterward, you should always seek medical treatment following a car accident. While some injuries present themselves immediately after the accident, others like whiplash or serious bruising may not be evident for a few days or even a week. One of the most crucial components of every personal injury claim is accurate medical records so make sure you keep all paperwork about any treatment you receive.
Is there anything I should not do at the scene of an accident?
If you remember one thing, remember never to admit fault at the scene of an accident. Under no circumstances should you apologize or say you were responsible. Even if you think you were responsible, there may be other conditions at play that could’ve caused the accident. You should also never say you aren’t hurt or “feel fine”. Many injuries don’t show up for a few days or even weeks following a car accident so even if you think you aren’t injured immediately following the accident, you may have injuries later on.
The other driver’s insurance company contacted me and offered a settlement. What should I do?
In many instances, the negligent driver’s insurance company may try and contact you to get details about the accident or offer you a settlement. Make sure you never accept any offer without first speaking and consulting with an experienced and professional car accident attorney. The negligent driver’s insurance company does not have your well-being in mind and wants to pay as little money as possible following an accident. That is why you shouldn’t discuss the accident, your injuries, who was at fault, or accept a settlement without an Oceanside car accident attorney by your side. Our attorneys are experienced with talking to insurance companies and will gladly take care of this and every other part of the legal process for you.
What kind of compensation can I recover?
Depending on the details of your case and how severely you are injured, you may be eligible for compensation related to a number of financial burdens. Along with expenses related to medical bills, you can also receive compensation for repair bills for your vehicle, rehabilitation costs, and even lost wages if you have to miss work. Additionally, some car accident victims experience severe anxiety or psychological injuries that could be life-altering. You may also be able to receive compensation to pay for these injuries and any treatment you may receive like therapy. Every case is unique so call and speak with a qualified car accident attorney today and find out what kind of compensation you can recover today.
How soon after a car accident should I get in touch with a lawyer?
If you or a loved one has experienced any physical or emotional injuries following a car accident, you should speak with a lawyer as quickly as possible. Once the accident is reported to the insurance companies, a claims adjuster will want to talk with your and ask for your statement as quickly as possible. Insurance companies are for-profit businesses and want to pay as little money as possible following an accident. Because of this, many adjusters ask biased questions or try and trick you into admitting fault. You should never give a statement or speak with the other driver’s insurance company unless you’ve consulted with a professional and experienced attorney first.
How much does it cost to speak with a lawyer?
The days, weeks or months following a car accident can cause a large amount of financial stress on you and your loved ones. With repair bills, doctor’s bills, and even lost wages, the idea of speaking to a lawyer may seem out of the question. Fortunately, your consultation with the Oceanside car accident lawyers at The Law Offices of Yvonne M. Fraser is always free and confidential. We have our clients welfare in mind and work tirelessly to get you the compensation you deserve. Contact us today at (760) 512-1172 and get started.
