What to Do If You Are Injured in an Accident
When facing the repercussions of someone else's negligence, there are
a few steps that you should take to protect yourself.
Step 1: Receive Medical Treatment
Finding the correct medical attention is always the very first thing you
must do if you wish to find the path to recovery for the injury or illness.
Whether you call 911 or are taken directly to the emergency room, you
will not be able to recover from the incident or attempt to collect compensation
if you refuse medical treatment.
Step 2: Contact a Philadelphia Personal Injury Attorney
The second urgent issue is to contact a Philadelphia personal injury lawyer
from Laynas & Georges, P.C. Our legal team will carefully evaluate
every aspect of your injury case and take action to preserve the needed
evidence and documentation to support your claim for compensation.
When negligence has led to an injury, the party who failed to protect you
from harm must be held accountable, and face the issue of paying for all
of your damages. In most cases, this will be paid by an insurance company.
Step 3: File a Personal Injury Claim Through Insurance
At our law firm, we work with insurance companies every day. Unfortunately,
they will take great efforts to avoid paying out the maximum possible
compensation. Without an attorney to negotiate on your behalf, and to
press them to come through with a fair settlement, they will likely offer
you a settlement far, far lower than you could recover with the help of
our law firm.
We know the strategies that they use to get injured victims to accept low
settlements, and as soon as we take on a case we ensure that your rights
Never engage in answering questions from an insurance adjuster until you
have contacted our firm. If you answer questions or if you provide your medical records, you will
likely soon discover that there will be a denial of certain types of damages,
or you could be offered an amount that will not even cover your medical costs.
