When you were driving home from your child’s soccer game, you were just trying to get there safely. You took your time and stayed off your digital devices. You had your kids be quiet, and you made your way home.
Unfortunately, not everyone is as cautious as you are. As you were passing through an intersection and green light, a vehicle came toward you from the left. They blew through the red light and T-boned your vehicle. Fortunately, your children were seated on the other side of the vehicle, but you still took the brunt of the force on the driver’s side.
What do you need to do after you seek medical care?
After you’ve gone to the hospital for your injuries, it’s important that you reach out to your attorney about starting a claim. You may be busy with physical therapy, medical appointments and other responsibilities in the days to come, so reaching out early helps you by alerting someone that you need assistance in handling your insurance claim. If the driver who hit you doesn’t have insurance, your attorney can begin looking into what it will take to put together a strong personal injury lawsuit.
It’s a smart choice to work with an attorney, because they will take the pressure of speaking with insurance agents, the police and others off your shoulders. You will need to make your initial police report, but after that, your attorney can handle most aspects of the case with minimal input. That way, you can focus on your own recovery without worrying about running out of time to make a claim.
