Uncertainty and worry can be a product of just not knowing your options. When you find yourself in an uncertain circumstance following an auto accident, Grizzly Law’s Auto Accident Attorneys have the experience to guide you through your next steps.
The steps you take BEFORE an accident (insurance, wearing a seat belt, etc.) are very important. The steps you take AFTER an accident can be just as important. The following summary from our auto accident attorneys provides some initial steps to follow immediately following a car accident.
When you do see a physician, make sure you tell them about ALL of your issues and symptoms, even if they don’t seem very severe. The insurance company assumes that if you had really hurt your back, neck, or whatever else in the accident, you would have complained about it during the first and second visits to the doctor. Often people involved in accidents will have major acute problems and secondary nagging problems. Sometimes, the acute problem will get fixed and the nagging problem (which you initially believed would go away), does not go away, and ultimately becomes the long term major physical difficulty. Take some advice from our auto accident attorneys: if you do not make your injuries known soon after an accident, you can be faced with difficulty proving the injury was caused by the accident.
The most important thing to do when you are injured in an auto accident is to get appropriate medical care. You should do this for two reasons: First, you need medical care so that you can heal. Second, if you don’t receive medical care, insurance companies may conclude you weren’t truly injured.
After an accident, there can be a lot of financial woes due to unplanned costs. You may be asking yourself: How can I pay for my medical bills? How can I pay for my car repairs? Can I even afford a car accident lawyer? Contact us for a free consultation!
Montana law often allows an injured person to receive immediate help to pay ongoing medical bills and lost wages. There is often more than one source of funds to pay medical expenses. It can be critically important to your final recovery that payments be properly orchestrated from these various funds to ensure a fair final resolution.
If you were in a car accident, car insurance may pay your bills, or health insurance may cover, or there may be other insurance that can apply to the bills.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you might not want to try to deal with the insurance company yourself. Insurance companies are multi-billion-dollar companies that spend millions of dollars training their adjusters about how to deal with you. Let our auto accident lawyers help. Grizzly Law has the experience, expertise, and resources to even the sides, to provide you with an excellent chance of obtaining a good recovery and to help you deal with the insurance professionals.
