How a Mechanicsville Personal Injury Lawyer Helps After a Virginia Car Accident

Making a full financial recovery after a serious car accident injury requires more than simply calling the police, of course. Crash survivors need to know what steps to take, and which to avoid, after the adrenaline rush from the accident wears off.

There is one extremely crucial pitfall to avoid in particular. Do not admit fault in any capacity to either the police or the other driver. Don’t even admit partial fault to try to make the other driver feel better if they are hurt. Instead, allow the lawyers and insurers to determine who is responsible.

A simple offhand remark here could drastically reduce your ability to recover the compensation you are owed. By following a skilled attorney’s advice, you can also handle other common defenses the liable party or an insurer may use to avoid paying what is actually deserved. The initial police report produced when an officer arrives on the scene is just one piece of evidence needed when recovering damages, however. 

That’s why you need an experienced Virginia car accident attorney to perform a more thorough analysis of the accident. Your lawyer can determine exactly who is liable and the best potential sources of financial compensation. When that person is identified, an attorney then assists in pursuing a full and fair recovery for factors like medical costs, pain and suffering, property damage, and lost income.
