It is your responsibility to protect your legal rights after being involved in an accident that resulted in personal injury to your person. If you fail to exercise your rights, you run the risk of not receiving the best settlement or verdict in your favor. Further, you may end up having to pay for medical bills out of your own pocket, which could have serious financial implications for you and your family.
The first thing to do after an accident is to seek medical treatment, regardless of the extent of your injuries. Even if you only have a few contusions, a sprain, or other minor injuries, obtaining medical treatment is part of your legal rights. During your examination, it may be discovered there are other complications that could result in requiring surgery to fully correct the damage.
After obtaining medical treatment, the next thing you will want to do is contact your local Los Angeles personal injury attorneys at Madison Law Group. The other party’s insurance company has attorneys representing their interests, so you should, too. Your lawyer is able to meet with you wherever it is convenient, including in your home or at the hospital, if you are unable to come to our offices.
