You Deserve Compensation for Your Injury Pursue Justice with Jenkins Utley, P.C. On Your Side

I'm Involved In An Accident - Now What?!

Car accidents are never something you want to be a part of your day, but when they do happen, it’s important to know what your options are.

A couple of years ago, I had a friend who was hit by a dump truck that failed to yield to oncoming traffic. The police and ambulance were called to the scene, statements were taken by the persons involved in the accident and my friend went to the hospital to get a physical to make sure there were no internal injuries.

When she got home she did what she thought was the next appropriate step and called her insurance company. The next several months were a headache, as she had to deal with her insurance company and the at-fault insurance company.

She never thought about calling a personal injury lawyer. It was her belief that she couldn’t afford a lawyer so she never bothered and took on the stress of handling the situation herself. Knowing her options would have been quite beneficial and the outcome would have been more positive.

If you've been involved in a motor vehicle accident of any kind, I highly recommend that you hire an attorney to represent your best interests. Even though your insurance company is supposed to have your back, they often try to minimize your claim so that they can pay you as little as possible. Not only can a skilled attorney maximize the amount of recovery you will receive, but they can also act on your behalf, letting you rest and recover from your injuries, instead of battling the insurance companies.
