Guidelines When You Are Injured

When you are involved in a Michigan personal injury accident, you should follow the guidelines below:

  1. Take pictures of the damage to your vehicle, the scene of the incident and your injuries as soon as possible.
  2. If given paperwork relating to your accident, DO NOT sign anything until your attorney has reviewed it and talked with you.
  3. Gather all contact information from the people involved in the accident and take the names and phone numbers of any witnesses to the accident.
  4. DO NOT provide any kind of statement to an insurance company before contacting your attorney. Your attorney should be the only person to contact any insurance company.
  5. Provide a copy of your insurance policy and declaration sheet to your attorney so they may review your coverage.
  6. Act quickly after an accident in hiring a Southfield MI personal injury attorney – there are many strict timelines that affect personal injury claims.

KEEP IN MIND: INSURANCE COMPANIES DO NOT HAVE YOUR BEST INTERESTS AT HEART.
