What to Expect After a Car Accident

It's difficult to anticipate a car accident. Worse, it's hard to know what's coming next. That makes it easy for car accident victims to be blindsided following an accident, making it tough to recover.

Fortunately, your Milwaukee car accident attorney wants to see your claim succeed. Here's what you need to be prepared for when you're hurt in a car accident. 

Severe Injuries

Car accidents often happen at high speeds, which can be dangerous or even deadly for you and your passengers. Your injuries can range from head trauma to spinal cord injuries and broken bones. The faster you were traveling, the more severe your injuries may be. Because of this, you may need to head to the hospital right away for emergency care.

Even if you feel fine, you may need to seek medical treatment. Not all injuries are obvious right away. For example, you may be suffering from internal bleeding, but you may not see or feel it yet. Unfortunately, waiting until you're ill and in pain can make your injuries worse, and they can even turn deadly if you don't seek treatment as soon as possible.

Insurance Settlement Offers

After a serious car accident, your first thought may be that your insurance company should cover the costs of your losses. You pay for their services every month, so you should be able to rely on them, right?

It may not be so simple. Your insurer is still a for-profit company, and paying for your claim can hurt those profits. Because of this, many people have trouble getting answers from their insurance companies for their claims. In these cases, you may need a lawyer to negotiate or help you take your claim to court.

Partial Fault Accusations from the At-Fault Party

One of the most difficult parts of dealing with your lawsuit can be dealing with partial fault. The at-fault party typically doesn't want to pay for the damages they caused, and they may try to push the blame onto you. They may claim you were acting carelessly, too.

If you accept part of the blame for your car accident, it can leave you with only part of your compensation. Worse, you may lose all your compensation, if the at-fault party claims you were more than 50 percent at fault for the accident.

Be Prepared with a Car Accident Lawyer

When you're hurt in a car accident, unexpected details can leave you dealing with some serious problems with your claim. If you're not careful, you can end up holding the bill for the serious injuries you've suffered because of someone else's actions.
