Information Is King
After a serious accident, it’s completely normal to have a lot of questions, and you should ask them, because being informed is your best chance of avoiding the many pitfalls accident victims often fall into. Ask your doctor questions about your injuries and recovery, ask the police officer questions about the accident and who was at fault, and ask a lawyer what you should do to protect your rights.
Information is key to pulling yourself out of this situation, but information is not knowledge. Just because you know the basics about your injuries doesn’t mean you should set your own bones or prescribe your own medications. Just because you know the law doesn’t mean you can enforce it or take matters into your own hands. And just because you know the injury claim process, doesn’t mean you should attempt to take on the insurance company without an experienced lawyer on your side.
