Seek Medical Attention Immediately
Did you know that in 2020, Suffolk County had the highest number of auto accidents in New York? Nassau County was third in the state for accidents. You are among many people who get hurt in accidents in the area. One of the most important things victims can do after their car crash is getting themselves in front of a doctor as soon as possible.
You can go see a doctor at the emergency room, an urgent care center, or even schedule an urgent appointment with your primary care doctor if possible. The important thing is that you do not wait to be seen. Waiting can be very detrimental to your health. Waiting also flags the insurance company to think you are lying about how badly you are hurt. We do not want to give them reasons to be suspicious.
Types of Car Crash Damages
There are two types of damages that you will be seeking compensation for. You are going to be looking to get compensation in the form of economic damages and non-economic damages.
Economic damages can be categorized as any financial loss you have suffered in your car crash. These damages can include your medical bills, lost income, damage to your vehicle, etc. It may even extend to transportation. You may need to get a rental car or take Ubers to and from medical appointments if you do not have a car after your crash.
Non-economic damages can be categorized as the negative impact the crash had on your life. You likely have suffered pain. You may have emotional and mental anguish during your recovery. Perhaps you are not enjoying life as you once did. These are all non-economic damages that we seek compensation for.
Do Not Speak to the Liable Party’s Insurance Company
Getting justice is possible when you have a lawyer protecting your rights to justice. It is important that you take precautions yourself to avoid having your right to full compensation taken away from you.
The liable party’s insurance company is going to try to get a statement from you after your car crash. They do not care about getting you the most money possible. They don’t want to give you money at all.
Do not give them a statement. They are trained to get you to say something that will negatively impact the value of your claim. Let your lawyer talk to them instead.
