When in any type of accident, don’t admit that it was your fault. If you slip and fell because of ice or slippery conditions, it doesn’t mean you say you’re clumsy. If it’s any type of car accident, and are able to dial 911, get the accident reported to the police and medical care if anyone needs it. If you are able, take pictures of the crash scene or the area while the cars are still on the road. If you are unable to, ask someone to do it for you. If you are hurt immediately seek medical treatment. If you are asked within a day or even a week to sign release papers from the person’s insurance company that you feel is at fault, do not sign them. These are normally releases for a minimal amount of money that states you’re fine and that you are accepting a miniscule amount of money for your bodily injuries. Why do insurance companies do this? They will send you the form hoping that a couple of hundred dollars will make you settle instead of having thousands of dollars of medical bills. Sometimes they say they will pay your medical bills if you sign the release, only later you find out that none of your medical bills were paid. Call a personal injury attorney in Tulsa if any insurance company starts asking you questions or sending you papers that you do not feel comfortable with after an accident.
A Personal Injury Attorney can provide you guidance with aggressive and compassionate representation for a personal injury or auto accident. You and/or your loved ones need to focus on the importance of healing and recovery after an accident, not insurance paperwork or a medical provider harassing you for payment.
Many attorneys, including a Personal Injury Attorney in Tulsa, work on a contingent fee basis, which means they do not get paid unless you get paid from the injuring party’s insurance company. There is a statute of limitation for personal injury claims and varies from state to state. Pain and suffering, damages to your vehicle and medical bills are only some of the things an attorney can obtain for you. You need to have an aggressive, yet compassionate attorney who listens to your needs.
