After an Accident: Get Legal Representation
After a car accident, your first and most urgent issue is getting immediate medical attention, even if you feel you are not injured. There are certain types of injuries that are not immediately evident, some of them life-threatening. When in a state of shock after an accident, you may not realize exactly how serious your injuries actually are. The second most important action is to contact our legal team to discuss the issue of compensation. It is crucial that you engage an attorney prior to discussing your injuries with an insurance adjuster. We represent clients in rear-end accidents, head-on accidents, side impact crashes and complex multi-vehicle accidents as well as filing
wrongful death claims in tragic cases of loss of life.
There are many actions that could be taken by an insurance company to reduce your compensation for damages, and you should never allow access to your medical records without first ensuring you are protected by our firm. We know all the tactics that could be engaged in by insurance companies, and we are committed to protecting your right to all the compensation you deserve. The damages sought will include medical costs, both current and future, hospital bills, medications, transportation costs, pain and suffering, and in cases of catastrophic injuries, the costs involved in long term nursing, medical equipment and loss of quality of life.
Contact a Berkeley car accident lawyer from Clancy & Diaz, LLP as early as possible after an accident to protect your right to the compensation you deserve.
