What to do after an Arizona auto accident?
The cleanup process after an auto accident in Arizona can be quite overwhelming. Here are some best practices to help you through the difficult time.
Maintain a record of events and dates as they happen and keep record of your insurance declarations, accident records, and any other statements from witnesses. Organized information is invaluable.
Don’t sign any forms without consulting a Phoenix injury attorney
You may be asked by an insurance company to sign forms that would waive your right to receive appropriate compensation. It’s easy to be persuaded to accept an initial offer, but be wary because insurance companies never take the time and effort to understand what your case is worth. Hire an experienced Phoenix accident lawyer to help you through this confusing process.
Don’t give recorded statements
After an Arizona auto accident, one or both insurance companies will call and ask you for a recorded statement. Don’t give one until you’ve talked to a Phoenix injury attorney. It’s too easy to accidentally say things that will damage your case before an investigation has even begun. If you feel uncomfortable with the insurance company’s process, give Curiel and Runion a call for a free case evaluation and let us explain your rights in terms that are easy to understand.
Don’t rush to accept an offer
Medical treatment can be expensive and the insurance companies know this. They’re motivated to settle your claim quickly, often before your medical treatment has come to an end. You have enough to worry about without being rushed through the process. Let a Phoenix injury attorney from Curiel and Runion help level the playing field.
Arizona Auto Accidents Can Be Complicated
Be aware of your own uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage
Often you have applicable insurance coverage on your own automobile insurance policy. A personal injury attorney from Curiel and Runion can review that information to determine if you have a right to recover from more than one policy.
