Personal Injury Representation After Devastating Accidents
One minute, you’re driving home from work, listening to the radio and thinking about dinner. The next moment, you see a car careening toward you with no time to react. Moments like this can change your life, and they can happen in an instant.
If you were injured in a car accident, slip-and-fall accident or a similar incident, you may suddenly be faced with a pile of unexpected bills and several big decisions. Fortunately, you don’t have to go through this alone. At Matt Andrews, LLC, I will be your ally and legal guide to help you navigate the personal injury claims process. Together, we will pursue the compensation you and your family deserve.
How To Financially Protect Yourself
After an injury, it can feel like time speeds up and you may not know what to do first. Initially, focus on yourself and your own physical and mental well-being. If you or anyone else at the scene is injured, call an ambulance. If you’re not injured, you shouldn’t feel obligated to speak to anyone except the police. Bystanders may approach you to ask what happened but say little to nothing about the circumstances. Remember, your words can be used against you to decrease your potential compensation.
The insurance company will likely offer you a settlement amount shortly after the incident. Do not agree to or sign anything until after you’ve discussed your situation with a lawyer. In many cases, the insurance company will offer a settlement amount that will not be enough to cover your expenses. An attorney can help you determine how much you actually need and then negotiate a fair amount with the insurance company.
