What To Do If Your Car Has Been Damaged
- First, seek medical treatment following any type of collision, if you think your injuries are minor.
- Notify the police so a police report can be written up
- Take pictures of your vehicle, the extent of the damage, and surrounding scene
- Do not sign anything from insurers or accept any offers without consulting an attorney.
- Hire an attorney to make sure that you are being fairly compensated by insurers for your vehicle damages.
An Attorney Can Help Seek Fair Compensation for Vehicle Repairs or Replacement
An attorney is most likely to make a significant impact on an auto accident claim that involves a serious collision that has left your car seriously damaged or totaled. Rollover accidents, high-speed collisions and accidents involving large vehicles like semi-trucks are most likely to cause this type of damage, but we have seen considerable damage inflicted even in low-speed and seemingly minor crashes.
In any type of traffic accident case, a seasoned attorney can consider any and all sources of compensation, including the at-fault party’s insurance provider as well as your own. An attorney can then work on negotiating with the insurance company to seek a fair settlement, taking your case to court if faced with unethical or outright illegal attempts to undervalue your claim.
