A – No. In fact, because it can take weeks or months (or maybe even longer) before you are able to obtain the compensation you deserve from a car accident case, it’s best that you attend to your medical and car repair needs as soon as you need to.

With both of these needs and pursuits of recovery, however, keep in mind that:

  • You should keep all documents related to expert diagnoses – both of your physical injuries and the damage to your vehicle, as these documents will be critical evidence to your claim.
  • You should keep all bills you receive, as these will be critical to ensuring that you are compensated appropriately for your expenses.

In fact, when in doubt, keep copies of any paperwork you receive that may be associated with your car accident case. While you can always easily dispose of these documents later, it may be far more difficult to locate a copy of this paperwork if or when you may need it to support your case.

Q – Why do I need a lawyer for my car accident claim?

A – Because, with the help of an experienced attorney like one of the Birmingham and Montgomery car accident lawyers at Joe M. Reed & Associates, you will have the best chances of obtaining the full amount of compensation that you deserve.

In fact, you should know that, after car accidents, it will be up to you to know your rights and entitlements because insurers will likely be trying their best to low-ball your settlement (if not outright denying your claim). With a skilled and experienced lawyer, however, you can trust that your rights are being protected, that you are aware of what these rights are and that you will not be manipulated into accepting a settlement that may be less than what you deserve.
