If someone is in an accident and feels that their physical health may be affected, it is important to make sure their rights are protected and their claim is handled appropriately.
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) November 13, 2013
The law firm of Growe Eisen Karlen, the home of award winning personal injury lawyers and Saint Louis auto accident attorneys, would like to remind anybody involved in an auto accident that seeking a qualified lawyer can be the difference between receiving post-accident coverage or no coverage at all.
“Many people simply want to quickly exchange insurance information and move on with their day,” says a spokesperson from Growe Eisen Karlen. “In some cases, people just take a look for damage and, if they see none, don’t even exchange information at all. This can be a huge mistake, especially if they have health bills stemming from the accident in the future.”
If someone is in an accident and feels that their physical health may be affected, it is important to make sure their rights are protected and their claim is handled appropriately. In most situations, the insurance company for the driver at fault requires a recorded statement immediately. In some cases, the statement is mandatory if they are to cover medical costs.
-Find a lawyer that you trust. If you don’t trust and work well with your lawyer, they will be a bad fit no matter how accomplished they might be.
-Find a lawyer familiar with the trial process. Many insurance claims are settled out of court, but if a case does go before a judge it is extremely important that an attorney is familiar with the litigation and trial process.
-Find a lawyer that is an experienced negotiator. Having an experienced negotiator as your lawyer will encourage insurance companies to give you the highest level of compensation.
