If you are the victim of a personal injury, here are a few things you can do to help yourself. First of all, make sure that you seek proper medical attention and follow up with the proper authorities. Also be sure to call your own insurance company. If you believe your injury was caused by the carelessness or intentional act of another, you may want to contact an attorney to discuss this. You should call as soon as it is convenient to do so and avoid discussing the matter with strangers and/or insurance representatives who are not from your own insurance company.
You should be cooperative with the police, your own treating physicians and your own insurance company. Most personal injury cases are covered by a statute of limitations, which means that you only have a certain period of time in which you can file a lawsuit. If you get in a motor vehicle accident and would like to be evaluated at our office, please give us a call at (858) 571-0606. We accept Med Pay claims and also work with attorneys on personal injury cases. If you don’t have an attorney and need one, we would be happy to refer you one.
