    Steps To Take After a Car Crash

    Our goal is to make the process of filing a claim easy for you. Below are things you should do after you’ve been involved in an accident:

    • Prioritize medical attention: After a car crash, the most important thing you can do for yourself is make sure you and everyone else in your vehicle are safe and unharmed, and then seek a doctor to make sure nothing is wrong; even if you don’t think something is wrong. Our lawyers think it’s always a good idea to go because certain injuries can have delayed symptoms. Also, if signs do appear after you leave the accident scene, find medical attention right away. If left untreated it could cause dangerous long-term effects and unfortunately even death.
    • Take pictures for evidence:  It’s important to take multiple photos of the accident scene, as well as any injuries suffered for evidence in your claim. It could be highly beneficial for you to earn any compensation.
    • Gather any evidence from witnesses: If a witness was present at the scene of the accident, speak with them and obtain their contact details and what they witnessed. At Reaves Law Firm, we like to ask witnesses for some extra details on what happened during the crash. When working on a scenario, having additional insights is often beneficial to your claim.
    • Call one of our experienced lawyers right away: Do not wait to contact an Oakville, TN attorney after your car accident. We want to be there to help you process any claims. Plus the sooner you contact our lawyers the sooner they can get to work for you, gathering evidence, talking to insurance companies and working to get you the settlement you deserve.
    • Do Not Respond to the insurance company: You will most likely get a call from the insurance company for the other party in your accident. Please do not talk to them. Insurance companies are known for taking advantage of victims by offering them a settlement that is less than they deserve. Instead contact us so we can handle the insurance companies for you.
    • Keep records of any bills or receipts that pertain to your injuries: Any bills or receipts relating to the injury should be saved. We can assist you in gathering these bills later, but it is much easier if you begin saving them immediately.

    Damages for Car Wreck Injuries

    • Medical expenses, including emergency room visits, hospitalization, doctor appointments, and prescriptions
    • Lost wages, if you missed work while recovering from your injuries
    • Lost earning potential, if you will be unable to return to work at the same hours or the same pay as before the accident
    • Property damage, for repair or replacement costs for your vehicle, phone, and other property that may have been damaged in the accident
    • Pain and suffering, for mental anguish and loss of enjoyment of life
    • Loss of consortium, if your injuries affect your relationship with your spouse
    • Death benefits, including funeral expenses and loss of income, if your family member passed away as a result of the accident

    How Long Is the Auto Collision Claim Process?

    After being involved in a car accident, it is important that you file a lawsuit as soon as possible. If you miss the application deadline, your ability to recover from any injuries suffered in the accident could be jeopardized. The statute of limitations is a set of laws that determines how long you have to file a lawsuit. In Tennessee, the statute of limitations for auto accidents falls within the statute of limitations for personal injuries, which means one year from the date of the accident. Unfortunately, most insurance companies have even shorter timelines in which you must file a claim, so we recommend that you begin the legal process with an Oakville, TN car crash attorney as soon as possible.

    How Much Does a Car Wreck Attorney Cost?

    Don’t be concerned about the cost of retaining an attorney to represent you in a car accident case. We want to ensure that everybody has access to competent legal counsel. Attorney fees should not be an obstacle to finding an excellent, attorney. Furthermore, you owe us nothing until we win your case!

    Our lawyers will take a fraction of your settlement as our legal fees, and if for some reason we are not able to recover any compensation for you during the case, then you would owe us nothing.
