When things go Bad, You need an Attorney that will Fight Back
Whether you were injured in an auto accident, on the job, or otherwise, it’s wise to seek the advice of a competent attorney before accepting any payment from the other party or an insurance company. In most cases, once you cash the check, you waive all rights to further compensation regardless of what medical issues may come up or be discovered in the future. Our team knows exactly what questions to ask and what details to seek out to get to the truth of who is at fault.
When analyzing the case, the attorneys at the Ellender Law Firm will use their extensive experience to put a number on your pain and suffering and make sure that you get the compensation you deserve.
What to do when you've been hurt and it's not your fault?
1. Take Pictures
They say that a picture is word 1000 words. If you need to go to court, that picture can be worth $1000s. While you are still at the scene of the accident, take pictures of everything. Closeups of the details as well as zoomed out panoramas of the entire area can be critical in reconstructing exactly what happened. With the huge storage available on our phones combined with the camera built in to most of them this is definitely the easiest step to making sure you get made whole.
2. Write Down as Many Details as Possible
We know. Nobody likes to write anything down these days. That said. While the accident is still fresh in your mind, take a few minutes to write everything down. Even if you can’t remember everything, write downtime events as best as you can. Our attorneys can help you remember the details and fill in the blanks later. Make sure this step gets done as soon as possible though. Memories of the details can fade fast.
3. Take Note of any Witnesses that Saw What Happened
Without witnesses, it’s just your word against theirs. Take a minute to get the names and contact info for any bystanders so they can be contacted later to get their version of what happened. Every additional person we can get to tell their story is another building block to the truth.
