If you were injured in an auto accident, and you believe it was the fault of the other driver, you might have a viable personal injury case. You’ll probably want to consider the following factors, and then talk with qualified and respected auto accident lawyers as soon as possible.

Damages in personal injury cases are proved through medical bills, records, radiology reports and other reports. That’s why it’s important that you act on your injuries right away. Any delay in treatment is likely to be used against you. When you call 911, insist that paramedics be dispatched along with police. Don’t refuse transport to the emergency room. Your injuries will be documented by both paramedics and emergency room personnel.

Insurance companies love to see missed appointments and treatment gaps. They’ll use those to attack your credibility.
