If you have been involved in a car accident, there are several very important pieces of information you should know and steps you can take to protect yourself and your legal rights. One of your first steps after a wreck should be contacting the Law Offices of Kevin R. Lynch, P.L.C.. We make sure clients get the medical care and physical rehabilitation they need while working to create a legal strategy to maximize your economic recovery. Our firm serves Warren, Michigan and the surrounding areas.
Immediately after an impact, you should check to make sure no one is hurt. If necessary or possible, move to safety. You must call the police if anyone has been injured or killed, or if there appears to be $1,000 or more in damages to property. You must also exchange identifying information and insurance information with anyone else involved in the crash. Be careful never to apologize or admit that you were at fault, even to police. Do not lie to the police, but never volunteer more information than they ask for. Something as simple as saying “I’m sorry” can have a drastic impact on whether your medical bills get paid.
Once you are in a safe place, and before you speak to an insurance adjuster, you should speak with our experienced attorney. Anything you say to an insurance company will be used against you. People involved in an auto accident may truly believe that it was their fault, only to find out that the law places blame on the other driver. Your attorney can help you understand what you should and should not say.
