If you or a loved have been injured in a motor vehicle accident or your family has lost a beloved family member in a Fatal accident in Louisville or throughout Kentucky we know you have a lot of important questions:
What should you do if you are injured in a car, truck or motorcycle accident?
What important actions should you take in the immediate aftermath of the accident?
What should your family do if you’ve lost a loved one in a fatal motor vehicle accident?
Why is it so important to speak with experienced Louisville personal injury attorneys?
The first and most important step you should take is to seek immediate medical attention, even if you feel you are not seriously injured. The forces involved in a motor vehicle accident damage the body in ways that may not be obvious in the first few hours or days after an accident. If you elect not to be transported from the scene it is important to visit an urgent care facility or your own primary physician within 24 hours to protect your ability to recover your medical bills, lost income and other financial expenses in the future.
Insurance companies are very aggressive and they will want to settle your case as soon as possible. This is not in your best interest. What do you need to know about insurance companies and adjusters? What medical treatment will you need? How will you pay for your bills? Whom can you turn to for help?
If you have suffered injuries in an accident the impact on your life will result in several immediate and long-term issues. Our injured clients value the ability to get immediate access to experienced and proven attorneys. We provide informed answers to their questions that help to begin the road to healing and moving forward with life.
