Vehicle Damage & Personal Injury Claims
Unless the other vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed, your vehicle may not show extensive damage when you are struck from behind. The insurance company is likely to argue that if your vehicle does not show extensive damage, you could not have been seriously injured.
Vehicles today are designed with strong bumpers that can withstand the force of a low-speed collision. However, your body is not. You can suffer head injuries, neck injuries, and back injuries. To ensure that you do not end up with chronic health problems from the accident, it's important to get help immediately after the accident and to continue to receive treatment until your doctor releases you.
Protecting Your Rights After a Collision
After you receive medical care, your next call should be to an attorney. Even though liability for the accident may be clear, the insurance company will do everything it can to avoid paying you the full compensation you deserve.
You should not make a recorded statement without legal advice, as anything you say can be used to damage your case. Nor should you accept a check before you have completed your medical treatment. If you accept a low-ball settlement offer from the insurance company, you will not be able to go back and ask for more money later if your injuries turn out to be more serious than you first thought.
