Have You Been Hurt In An Auto Accident?
If you’ve been hurt in an auto accident, it can be confusing, terrifying, and an outrage. You’re a victim in the scenario, having done nothing wrong, but you’re faced with mounting medical bills, and you can’t work like you used to. All you want is your life back, or at very least, to feel like you’re in control again. Unfortunately, those who caused your injury seem intent on not taking responsibility.

That’s why Peter Davis Law is your best option for an auto accident attorney in New Jersey. We will get you the best shot at significant compensation.
What To Do after a Car Accident
If you’re ever in a car accident, before you do anything else at all, call first responders. File a police report; it could be important later. Also, make sure that you and any other victims of the accident are seen by medics. Get the contact information of the other driver and of any witnesses to the accident. Take as many pictures as you can, and take as many notes as you can. The more detailed and consistent you can be, the better off you’ll be.
Next, see a doctor right away. Even if you feel fine, it could be due to adrenaline. By delaying medical attention, you could face worse problems down the road. It can also be used against you in court if you delay being seen.
Insurance Company Non-Payment Tactics
This all plays into the way insurance companies approach accidents. They will use any number of tactics to avoid paying out. It may be hard to believe, but all they care about is profit, and they won’t profit from paying. They could threaten you with court, claim you won’t get anything if you don’t their first offer, or even try to blame you for the accident. Even worse, they might do it with a veritable army of corporate lawyers behind them.
Have an Auto Accident Attorney on Your Side
For these reasons and many others, it’s vital that you have an auto accident attorney on your side. Remember, you don’t even have to speak to the insurance company after the initial accident report. You are always within your rights to inform them that your lawyer will be in touch and handle communications from here on out.
The right lawyer will protect your rights. They’ll help you get compensation for your injuries and medical bills, for your lost wages, your lost potential future earnings, for your pain and suffering, your loss of consortium, lost comfort, emotional damages, and more.
