Free Advice if You’ve Been Injured in an Accident
1. Call the police. No matter how minor or how big the accident is, you should call the police and make a police report. It’s critical that there’s documentation of the accident. The police report will not only provide you with important information that you’ll need (such as the other driver’s name, contact information, and insurance information) but it will also help you prove to the insurance company who was at fault.
2. Get medical care as soon as possible. Although the natural inclination is to tell yourself that you’re okay and don’t need to go to the hospital, you should go to the hospital whenever you’re in an accident to get checked out. Don’t worry about the bills. As long as you have valid insurance for the car that you’re traveling in, then you know that you’ll have $10,000 in medical coverage under your No-Fault Insurance coverage. Take the ambulance to the ER if you need to. Go to the ER right after the accident or at least within the first 24 hours. Then, be sure to get all the follow-up treatment that you need.
3. Call an injury lawyer. Most injury lawyers offer free consultations and don’t charge any fees until they get you compensation for your injuries (including us!). You have nothing to lose by at least calling to get a free consultation. Hawaii’s auto accident laws are complicated. Do yourself a favor and avoid a lot of the stress and worry when you’ve been injured in an accident by hiring an experienced injury lawyer to take care of everything and get you the compensation you deserve.
4. Take pictures of your injuries and car damage and email them to your lawyer as soon as possible. All too often pictures get lost or people put off taking pictures of their injuries until it’s too late.
5. Get as much medical treatment as possible. Your medical records will be the evidence in your case. When your lawyer begins to work on settling your case, the first thing he’ll do is obtain your medical records and send them to the insurance adjustor. Your medical records are the most important factor that adjustors consider when they’re evaluating your claim. Get as much treatment as you can so that you have plenty of medical records for the adjustor to consider.
