Being the victim of a car accident can be painful. You can suffer bodily injury, loss of work, loss of enjoyment of life, and general suffering. Don't let the insurance company try to settle your personal injury claims to "make it go away." Insurance companies will low-ball you because they want to spend as little as possible.
If you have been involved in a car accident, you need to see your doctor immediately. Many people "feel fine," until a Doctor takes a look and realizes that there is actual damage inside. Whiplash and airbags can cause a myriad of medical issues, so get to that Doctor within the week.
Hire an experienced Attorney who knows how insurance companies work and what they look for.
Let an experienced Attorney handle all the paperwork, including sending proper demand letters, acquiring all of your relevant medical records, quantifying your injuries, both present and future, and communcating and negotiating with insurance companies. Once the insurance companies know that an Attorney is on board, they start to take your damages seriously.
