Car Accidents

If you've found our web site because you've been injured in a car accident, you need useful information right away. While we'd urge you to download the free Toledo Car Accident Guide Book that's available on this site, here are some quick tips that might help you navigate this very difficult world. 

•1.    Don't sign insurance company documents: If you've been injured in a car accident, the insurance company for the at-fault driver may try to get you to settle your claim for an amount that's simply not fair to you. Talk to a lawyer before you sign anything sent to you by an insurance company in order to protect your rights. 

•2.    Don't sign medical authorization releases: Don't sign any forms that allow the insurance company to gather your medical records. You are under no obligation to allow an insurance company to comb through private, unrelated medical records that have nothing to do with the accident that injured you. The other driver's insurance company is not on your side. They're protecting their insured and their own pocketbook. Talk to a lawyer first. 

•3.    Seek medical treatment immediately: If you've been injured, seek medical care as soon as possible after the accident and follow your doctor's orders regarding treatment. Many people try to tough it out after they've been injured. While that's understandable, the best way to get better fast is to seek proper medical care. On top of that, if you don't seek care, the insurance company may treat you as if you're exaggerating or faking your injuries. 

•4.    Don't provide a recorded statement to the insurance company: Many times insurance company adjusters will ask you to provide a recorded statement regarding the accident and your injuries. Don't do this without speaking with a lawyer. You're under no obligation to give a recorded statement. Giving a statement without speaking to a personal injury attorney could damage your case before you ever get it started. 

•5.    Hire an attorney who focuses on personal injury cases: As you may have discovered by now, there are a lot of lawyers who have web sites and phone book ads. If you decide you need a lawyer, make sure you chose one who focuses his or her practice on representing accident victims. This area of the law can be very specialized and nuanced. An attorney specializes in criminal law or estate issues may be great in those areas, but you really need someone who deals primarily with personal injury cases. Whether or not you contact our office, make sure you get someone who fights in the injury arena every day. To contact our office, call 419-241-1150 and ask to speak to Dale Emch.
