Car accidents are a common occurrence. But if your accident resulted in injuries, a collision can become extremely disruptive or even life changing. In addition to the pain and emotional distress you may experience, you’ll have to negotiate the details of your insurance claim, arrange medical treatments, and deal with the financial realities of your situation.
In the face of all these challenges, it’s nice to have an ally you can trust to help you through the process. Understanding your options following a car accident is the best way to make sure you are not taken advantage of by an insurance company, and to prepare yourself to make informed decisions that will ensure the best outcome for your case. Our car accident lawyers at FVF have helped over a thousand people make educated choices about their accident case. We can help determine whether hiring a personal injury lawyer is the best choice for you.

In addition to physical injuries, many accident victims suffer emotional trauma, mental distress, and other neurological symptoms. This can manifest as the following:
Even if you think your injuries aren’t serious enough to warrant medical attention or believe that you may recover without treatment, it’s important to see a medical professional as soon as possible for two reasons. First, serious injuries may take days to appear. Second, documenting medical issues as early as possible is very important to your legal case. If symptoms do not get better, or actually worsen later, the insurance company will argue that your injury is not related to the car accident if you did not do a good job of treating for your injuries early and consistently.
Your actions after an accident may affect the outcome of your case, so it’s important that you take some steps to protect yourself to keep your legal options open.
There are many factors that can cause accidents, which is exactly why complicated cases might need an expert to investigate and prove liability. The following are some of the most common causes of accidents.
