Protecting Your Rights After an Accident
Getting in a car crash is frightening. Many people do not know what rights they have, and they do not know who to contact. After a car accident, there are several things you should do to preserve your case, and there are also things to avoid.
When you contact the Law Office of Marc June, we can help you understand what to do and what to expect at every step of the process. The firm has more than 30 years of experience representing clients in personal injury matters throughout Alaska.
At the Scene of a Car Crash
If you were involved in a car crash, it is important to call the police right away -- even if you don't see any damage. If you discover later that your car was damaged, you will need a police report to file the claim with your insurance company. In addition, it can take days or weeks for injuries to become apparent, and you will also need a police report to file a claim with your health insurance.
While you are at the scene of the accident, you should not make comments such as, "I should have seen the other driver," or apologize for causing the car crash. Although your intentions may be driven by sympathy or helpfulness, your comments may be taken out of context and used against you.
After the Accident
One of the best ways to protect your rights is by contacting a personal injury attorney. You need to work with a professional that has your best interests at heart, and you will not find those people at your insurance company. Marc June can help present the right information to your insurance company in the best light possible.
If you were injured in a car crash, you have the right to recovery. You deserve due process and compensation for your physical and financial losses.
