If you’ve recently been injured in a car accident, you should hire a lawyer immediately. You have the absolute legal right to compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance policy. It’s highly unlikely that anyone from the at-fault driver’s insurance company is going to reach at to you and simply offer to pay you the compensation they owe you. It simply doesn’t happen. The insurance company will simply sit back, and hope you don’t file a claim, or even worse–hire a lawyer. Baltimore car accident lawyer Benjamin Stirling, Esq. offers free telephone and in-person consultations regarding your accident.
An experienced car accident lawyer can get you the financial results you deserve. Personal injury attorney Benjamin Stirling, Esq. knows the various tactics of the insurance companies and can leverage this information into maximizing your injury settlement. If the insurance company refuses to make a fair settlement offer, a lawsuit will be filed on your behalf at no extra charge.
If you’re hurt, get medical examination and treatment as soon as possible. A referral may be made by Baltimore car accident lawyer Benjamin Stirling, Esq. to a medical provider who is familiar with treating car accident injuries. Head, neck and back injuries are common following the impact of a motor vehicle collision.
Other parts of the body commonly injured are knees, legs, elbows, hands and arms when these parts of the body come into contact with the interior of the vehicle at a high rate of speed. Injuries to the abdominal wall, chest and shoulders are also often seen following a motor vehicle accident, as the body propels into a rigid seat-belt, concentrating the forces of the impact into the parts in contact with the safety belt.
If you are in the midst of a medical emergency, call 911 immediately and/or go straight to the nearest emergency room, via ambulance if necessary. Generally speaking, your injuries must be properly documented and identified by medical personnel in order to properly claim compensation for these injuries from the insurance company.
If you’re prescribed a course of physical therapy to further treat your injuries, and to rehabilitate your body following an accident, make sure you attend each and every appointment as prescribed by your medical provider. Insurance will regularly point out any gaps in your treatment history. Always document any reasons why you may have missed any scheduled injury treatment appointments should the need to explain such absences arise later.
Your financial recovery may well depend on it. If you’ve been in an car accident, call Benjamin D. Stirling, Esq., a Baltimore car accident lawyer at (410) 929-9988 to maximize your compensation and recovery following a car accident.
