We are often asked: “What should I do after having been in a car accident?” and most of the answer to that question is not really related to the practice of law.
The very first thing we recommend doing is seeking medical attention. Your health should always be your primary priority.
After having sought medical attention, we recommend you speak with an attorney of your choice to get guidance.
You will also need to file a claim with your insurance company.
In our practice, we recommend you speak with an attorney first. It can be tricky to make that all work out and sometimes, you have no choice, but to contact your insurance company first which is of course also perfectly fine.
Once you have retained an attorney and filed a claim with your insurance company, your only remaining task is to get treatment and improve your health as best possible.
At Rooney & Rooney, P.A., we then obtain your medical records from your doctors to prepare your case for the next phase.
