3 Important Tips if you have been injured in an Autobile Accident in Pennsylvania
This are 3 important things to remember if you or a family member has been injured in an automobile accident.
Seek and receive medical attention immediatelyThe paramount concern is for a person's safety and health. Get medical attention and treatment first - your legal case or other concerns can wait. Seeking an attorney should occur only after medical issues have all been thoroughly addressed. An individual has up to 2 years from the date of an accident to file a legal action for personal injuries suffered in the accident.
Collect important informationWhen you are physically able to do so, it will be important to share with your lawyer a summary of what happened, any accident reports, your automobile insurance documents, and/or any other important information or photographs about the accident. Your attorney can assist you with getting copies of your medical records.
Retain an Attorney before you talk to insurnace adjusters or agree to any settlementUnfortunately it still happens that nice people, without the benefit of an attorney, bind themselves to settlements which aren't fair.
