We’ll Connect You With a Personal Injury Lawyer After Your Accident
If you’ve been hurt in a car accident, in addition to medical care from our Duluth chiropractor, you may also need legal help. It’s important that you speak with a personal injury attorney about your accident immediately after your injuries are treated. The longer you wait, the less likely your chances will be of obtaining the compensation you need.
Why Should You See an Attorney Immediately After Treatment?
After an accident, there are many forms and claim notices that have short time deadlines to file — some of which may be only a number of days. Only an experienced personal injury lawyer knows how to fill out and file these forms and claim notices correctly. These forms should be filled out and filed by your attorney.
You may be required to file an accident report with the Department of Motor Vehicles within days of the accident if:
- Someone is injured
- There is substantial property damage
This form will usually be sent to you by your insurance company. You should give this form to your attorney to assist you in completing it. Additionally, if a municipality may be liable for any part of your injuries — such as improper road design or a missing sign — you must file a notice of claim with the municipality, usually within 90 days of the date of accident. Your attorney must do this for you. The insurance company for the person(s) responsible for your injuries should be immediately notified of your claim by your attorney, because failure to do so can allow the insurance company to decline coverage.
