Continued From Critical Tips: What To Do After You’ve Been in an Auto Accident: Part 3

If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident there are important steps that you must take in order to protect yourself. Remembering to take the following steps when you’re involved in a car or truck accident will have a substantial effect on the outcome of your personal injury claim.

7) Avoid Settling on Your Own

Settling your personal injury claim on your own with the other party or with their insurance company is a complicated process. Working with a lawyer can help you avoid costly mistakes that can have negative effects on your claim. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you maximize your recovery related to your incident.

8) Be Aware of Filing Deadlines!

It is important that you pursue your legal claim or lawsuit in a timely manner. The majority of personal injury claims have filing deadlines. This is known as the “statute of limitations” which can vary depending on the state and the type incident. Once the statute of limitations has expired, you will likely lose your right to file a lawsuit.
