Car accidents often happen when we least expect them, and even the most careful driver in the world can find themselves in harm's way because of the decisions of a negligent driver. You can sometimes avoid the hazard and maneuver yourself to safety in some cases, but in others, you can’t prevent the inevitable accident.
All of this can happen instantly and leave you on the side of the road with a damaged car, mental damage, and severe physical injuries, but you can’t give up then. If you can remove yourself from the accident scene, you should seek medical attention for your injuries as soon as possible. But, before you leave the scene, try to take pictures or videos of the accident scene for reference later on, but this is only if you’re able to do so. Your health and well-being are the most important after a car accident of any severity, so seeking medical attention is more pressing than taking a picture.
The medical professional in charge of your care will evaluate you thoroughly, but as we know, medical costs aren’t cheap. If you weren’t at fault for the accident, then you can potentially recover compensation through the at-fault party’s car insurance provider. However, this isn’t always the case, and there are thousands of car wrecks per year involving drivers who aren’t covered at the time of the accident. This is where the situation gets complicated, so it’s best to team up with a trusted attorney who understands the process.
Morgan & Morgan, America’s largest personal injury firm, has the resources to give you the best possible chance of ensuring the at-fault party is held accountable for their negligent actions. Not only were they the cause of your pain, but they also made the conscious decision to get behind the wheel without the proper legal protections, which recklessly exposed you to an elevated risk of a tragic situation. Our car accident lawyers stand as an ally to anyone who finds themselves in this situation. Plus, we’re uniquely capable of recovering every penny that you’re entitled to, giving you an undeniable edge as you seek to hold the negligent party accountable for their actions.
