What am I supposed to do after being involved in an accident and I am badly injured?

It is important to focus first and foremost on your medical care and healing. However, if your accident was the direct result of someone else’s negligence, you need a personal injury attorney to help you file your claim. Negligence that caused an accident and resulted in injuries can typically be dealt with via a settlement conference with the insurer or if that process does not resolve your case and provide a settlement, then the case may be taken to trial.

Do not attempt to file your own claim or deal with any insurance companies. They are not your friend and their first objective is to reduce your claim and try to get you to settle for less than what you are likely to get in a settlement if you have legal counsel or at trial.
