Seeking Compensation For Injury Victims
When someone else’s negligence causes you or a loved one harm, recovering compensation can be an important step in getting back on your feet and holding bad actors accountable. Maximizing your compensation, however, requires experienced legal guidance.
I am personal injury lawyer R. Gregg Edwards. From my office in Fayetteville, North Carolina, I can help you pursue damages for your injuries or a wrongful death claim on behalf of your family. I will guide you through the legal process, taking care to protect your rights and best interests to put you in position to recover the compensation you need.
What Do I Do When I’ve Been In An Accident?
Whether you were hurt in a motor vehicle accident, you slipped and fell on someone else’s property, you were bitten by a dog or injured on a work site, the steps you need to take are the same. As soon as possible, it is important that you:
- Seek medical attention: This is the most critical step to protect your health and safety. Additionally, a doctor can preserve crucial medical evidence proving the extent of your injuries.
- Take pictures of the accident scene: If you are able, document as much evidence as you can, including pictures of safety hazards or damage to other vehicles.
- Contact an attorney: I can evaluate evidence, work with accident reconstruction and medical experts, locate and interview witnesses and help you determine the best way to secure the compensation you deserve.
Additionally, do not speak with insurance adjusters after your accident, even if they are offering you a quick settlement. This may not cover the extent of your lost wages, medical bills and other expenses.
By getting an attorney like me on your side, you will send an important message to the insurance company that you will not be taken advantage of.
