If you are like most people you don’t know much about the law. Maybe you were recently in a serious Parkville car collision. Now you need to make a claim but don’t know what all is involved. You might be able to represent your own Parkville case, but you also might need to hire an attorney. How do you know if you need a lawyer? Educating yourself about your specific case is the key to success. Remember that knowledge is power.
The first piece of advice I give people is to not give up before you even get started. You might be worried that you will go through all the complications and trouble to make a claim and then not get anything in return. That is a possible outcome, but you don’t know unless you try. We recommend contacting a Parkville personal injury attorney for advice after you have educated yourself on your case.
Don't give up!
Make sure that you aren’t still in shock over the accident before you talk to a lawyer. It’s important that you can make sound decisions with a clear head because your settlement relies on that. If you were seriously injured in the Parkville car crash it is important to get medical treatment right away. You can worry about finding an attorney later. Once you have dealt with the psychological impact of the accident and the physical injuries, then you are equipped to make a good decision. Make sure you feel comfortable with the lawyer you choose.
If you haven't done so already, DO NOT give a recorded statement to the insurance company!
Secondly, you never want to give an official statement to the auto insurance agent before you understand your case. They will be looking for something you say that can be used against you in your claim. The insurance company will try to record your conversation as evidence. Once you say something it cannot be taken back, so speak to a lawyer first for advice on what you should say.
