Two Biggest Mistakes Car Accident Victims Make

by Staff Blogger | June 15th, 2017

You’ve been in a serious car accident. You’re injured; you’re scared; and you don’t know where to turn for help. You’re going to get a lot of advice from folks over the next few weeks. The insurance company may be one of them. But how do you know which advice is sound?

Take a minute to learn the two biggest mistakes car accident victims make and then use that as your barometer for any advice you receive.

1) Failing to get proper medical treatment. You need a couple things to fully recover physically after a car accident: time and medical treatment. You should never refuse medical treatment or pass on a scheduled appointment, because doing so could lead to setbacks or further injuries.

2) Dealing with the insurance company alone. Although you might think the insurance company is looking out for your best interests, the fact remains that the insurance company is a business. They make their money by paying out less in claims than they take in in premiums. They have every motivation to pay you less than you deserve for your injury claim if you’ll take it. Without an experienced Roanoke car accident attorney on your side, you might miss out on thousands of dollars that you’ll need to fully recover.
