Auto Accidents

After being injured in an auto accident, you’re in pain, medical bills are stacking up by the minute, and you’re out of work, unable to earn the money you need to afford treatment. What’s worse, the accident happened because of another driver’s negligence, and the insurance company is giving you the runaround.

Call the experienced auto accident lawyers at Weaver & Young P.C. We will fight on your behalf to recover the compensation you need for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Our car accident lawyers have represented clients like you in and out of court throughout Michigan, including Detroit, Flint and the surrounding areas.

Don’t hesitate — going it alone after a car accident could risk the compensation you deserve. Many victims of auto accidents try to handle their own personal injury cases, hoping the insurance companies will settle as promptly and fairly as they promise.

Unfortunately, insurance companies are still businesses whose main interest lies in making money. Their focus isn’t always on what is best for victims of auto accidents, and having a skilled and aggressive car accident lawyer on your side from Weaver & Young P.C. will help protect your rights to compensation.

After the Accident

Don’t sign anything from an insurance adjustor until you’ve spoken to an experienced Weaver & Young P.C. auto accident attorney. Insurance adjustors will sometimes show up at the scene of an accident and ask leading or incriminating questions when victims are at their most vulnerable. This could lead to you signing away any future rights to compensation.

Gather as much information as you can at the scene of the accident. Take pictures and interview witnesses. It is extremely difficult to refute photographic evidence in a car accident lawsuit. Be sure to take note of phrases witnesses say, such as “that black car was swerving” or “that truck flew through the intersection.” Take down names and contact information as well, just in case your claim goes to court.

Visit your doctor immediately. Any delay may hurt your claim. Also, be sure to follow all recommendations and keep records and prescriptions on file. Remember, you have the right to choose your physician — don’t let the insurance adjustor choose one for you.

Contact your insurance company as soon as possible. A delay in reporting an auto accident could hurt your case.

Keep records and files as time passes. Keep a journal detailing how you felt after the car accident. Six or seven months later, it can be difficult to remember how painful it was just to lift your arms to brush your teeth, and an insurance adjustor may try to say you are exaggerating your injuries. Also keep receipts from household services received, such as house cleaning and lawn mowing services.

Hire a lawyer. Our auto accident attorneys are sharp, driven and experienced. When you’ve been injured by someone’s negligence in an auto accident, you need the help of someone who has a history of standing up to insurance companies and demanding the compensation victims deserve for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Don’t go it alone — call us today!
