Injured in a Car Accident? 4 Things You Must Know

Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid represents victims of car accidents.  If you have just been injured in a car accident, here are some things you should know.

First, you should get immediate medical help for any injuries without any delay. Prompt medical attention can increase your chances of a better recovery.  Any delay in getting medical attention will hurt your claim and allow the at fault person’s insurance company to argue that you were not really injured in the crash because you did not seek medical attention.  Be sure to tell the medical providers everything about how the crash injured you.

Second, you should notify your insurance agent or insurance company of the crash right away. Your insurance contract likely requires you to promptly notify them of the crash, and the earlier your insurance company knows about the crash, the sooner it can assist you with your medical bills and car repairs.  

Third, you have no obligation to talk to the at-fault driver’s insurance company. They will not help you.  They will record your telephone conversation and likely use any statements you make against you later.  The at-fault person’s insurance company will not pay for your medical bills unless you agree to sign an agreement giving up your right to compensation for every other part of your claim, such as lost wages, pain and suffering, future medical care and loss of your normal life activities.

Finally, contact Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid as soon as possible so we can evaluate your case, assess your damages in a free consultation, and then protect your interests.  Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid continues to handle all types of car accidents, personal injury and wrongful death cases for clients in Cook, DuPage, Kane, Will and Kendall Counties, Chicago, Wheaton, Joliet, Geneva and throughout the entire Chicagoland area.
