Steps to Take After a Rental Car Accident
If you hire Bader Scott Injury Lawyers to represent you, our job will be to handle your case from start to finish so that you do not have to bear the burden of legal work. However, there are some steps that we do recommend you take early on if it is possible to do so:
Seek Medical Treatment
Even if you believe that you are not injured, you should still see your doctor as soon as possible after a car accident for a thorough examination. Some injuries may not manifest until hours or days after the accident. The longer you delay medical treatment, the more difficult it may become to prove that your injuries were caused by the car accident.
Document the Accident
Keep track of any evidence you may have collected from the scene, such as photos, videos, witness contact information, and the police report. Keep careful records of the medical treatment you received, and if possible, try to take some notes of what you recall from the accident before it fades from your memory. We may be able to use this information when building your case.
Be Careful When Speaking with Insurance Companies
If the responsible party’s insurance company contacts you, be cautious about what you tell them about your injuries or the accident. They may be able to use your statements against you to reduce or deny your claim.
When you work with Bader Scott Injury Lawyers on your case, we can handle the communications with the insurance companies on your behalf.
