After suffering an injury in an auto accident, you may be overwhelmed, anxious, and lost as to what you should do next.

If you have been injured in an auto accident because of someone else’s negligence, you have the right to seek compensation for your losses. At Fazli & Associates, we are here to get justice for the injured.
What Should I Do If I Have Been Injured in an Auto Accident?
If you have been injured in an auto accident, call 911. The police will be on the scene to document the details of the accident and an official accident report will be generated as a result. Additionally, medical attention will be immediately available to anyone who may need it. If you are able to, begin gathering evidence at the scene of the accident. This means taking pictures and getting the contact information of any witnesses to the accident. Insurance companies will use any excuse to get out of paying auto accident injury claims. The more evidence to support your claim, the better.
Your health is of the utmost priority. Seek immediate medical care for your injuries. Additionally, be sure to follow the directions of your treating medical professionals and seek consistent follow-up care for your injuries. Getting this medical treatment is not only imperative for your recovery, but it also acts as the evidence of your accident injury. Going to doctor’s appointment can be a major inconvenience, but, to an insurance company, if you are not getting medical treatment, you must not have been injured in the accident. While this seems neither fair nor true, it has been the basis for numerous claim denials.
Be sure to notify your insurance company of the accident. Remember, while you are contractually obligated to speak to your insurance company about the accident, you have no such obligation to anyone else’s insurance company. This means if the insurance company for another party to the accident calls you, you do not have to, nor should you, speak to them. Even when you speak to your own insurance company, be careful. Keep your answers direct and concise. Refrain from any kind of speculation, especially regarding your injuries. You can simply say that you have been injured and are seeking necessary follow-up medical evaluations and treatments to ascertain the full extent of your injuries.
Auto accident injury claims are complex and insurance companies are ready for a fight. These big companies will use any excuse to try and undermine or deny your claim. This is why it is important to seek the counsel of trusted legal counsel as soon as possible. Do not wait because time is of the essence. All states have a statute of limitation, which is a time limit, on when you are able to bring your auto accident injury claim. Failure to file your legal claim before the statute of limitation runs will jeopardize your ability to take legal action seeking compensation for your injuries.
What Kind of Compensation Will I Receive?
In an auto accident injury case, you are able to seek compensation for the harm you have suffered. More specifically, you may seek compensation for things such as:
Cost of future medical care
Loss of future income
Loss of earning capacity
Pain and suffering
Depending on which state laws apply to your case, your recovery may be limited if you are found to be partially at fault in causing an accident. This is something that your attorney should discuss with you.
