Each year in the United States there are millions of car accidents. These accidents unfortunately result in millions of injuries and tens of thousands of deaths. Those injured in car accidents are entitled under the law to compensation for their injuries, for the loss of value in their cars, and other miscellaneous expenses like loss of income. Attorneys usually will take auto accident cases when there are significant injuries and the victim cannot agree with the defendant’s insurance provider on a reasonable settlement. Attorneys can also provide assistance when the victim or defendant has no insurance, or if the victim needs help getting medical attention. If you’ve been in an auto accident, you should follow all of your state’s laws regarding information exchanges and DMV reporting. If possible, take photos of the accident scene and keep records of your injuries. While most auto accidents can be resolved by simply dealing with the insurance companies, many cannot. In these cases, hiring an experienced personal injury attorney can make a big difference.
