Car Accident Attorney in Omaha, NE
If you’ve been involved in a car accident recently, know that you don’t have to fight for fair compensation or medical care alone. While you focus on getting better, let Aaron Brown Injury Law work on your behalf.
What Should You Do When Injured in a Car Collision?
The most important thing you need to do if you’ve been involved in a car collision that has resulted in an injury is to file a claim as quickly as you can. Even though you have four years to file, it becomes more difficult to prove fault and obtain any eye-witness evidence the longer you wait. So, what should you do?
To put yourself in the best position to receive the compensation you’re due following an accident, the team at Aaron Brown Injury Law suggests you follow these steps call the police, collect relevant information from other parties involved, inspect all damage, document everything, speak to any witnesses, get medical attention and call our office for representation:
1. Call the Police
The police are trained to evaluate the scene of an accident, to take witness statements, and can offer an opinion as to what happened and who was at fault. A police officer’s unbiased report is often crucial in determining fault.
2. Collect Relevant information from other parties involved
If you have the opportunity, the first thing you should do is getting the other individual’s information. Take photos of insurance cards, their driver’s license, and their license plate to start.
3. Inspect all damage, document everything
Next, take photos of the damage to both vehicles. Be sure to get a few angles to ensure you don’t miss anything.
4. Speak to any witnesses on site
If witnesses are available, try to get as much information from them as you can. Witness statements help validate the course of events and go a long way in helping you get the compensation you’re due.
5. Get Medical Attention
Too often people wait or try to “tough it out.” An adjuster or jury may look at not getting medical treatment for a couple of weeks as proof that you weren’t really hurt, so go as soon as possible.
6. Call Aaron Brown Injury Law and speak to our qualified team.
Securing witness statements can be crucial and speaking with them while their memory is fresh is important, so get in touch and let us get started as soon as possible.
Why Should You Contact an Omaha Car Crash Attorney?
Injuries resulting from a car crash don’t always happen, but when they do it’s important to have a reputable legal team on your side fighting for the money you need to help you get back to 100% health and compensating you for any permanent injuries. With Aaron Brown Injury Law, we’ll fight for you to ensure you receive fair compensation.
What Compensation Can You Receive for Car Crash Injuries in Nebraska?
Compensation can include auto repair or replacement, lost wages, medical care and pain and suffering:
Auto Repair or Replacement
Many accidents may be minor inconveniences, but when someone leaves your vehicle totaled, what do you do? If your car is lost because of driver negligence, we’ll fight to get you the fair amount you need to get you back on the road again.
If you’re left unable to work for an extended period of time following an accident, Aaron Brown Injury Law is here to help you recover any lost wages to give you and your family the money needed to maintain your quality of life.
If you spent any time in the hospital, have gone to physical therapy, or required extensive care following an accident, you’re entitled to the compensation necessary to cover costs. We won’t let you suffer under mounting medical bills for an injury caused by another driver’s negligence.
Pain & Suffering
Every accident is different and proper medical care can’t always protect you from the pain and suffering a major accident has brought into your life. Whether the pain you experience keeps you from work or limits your normal activity, you have the right to be paid for the impact.
