What You Should or Should Not Say After an Accident

As you prepare to file a claim for compensation, you may be concerned about what you should and should not say after an accident. As a personal injury lawyer in Davidson County might explain to you, less is more. It is not a good idea to assign blame, apologize, become confrontational, or get “revenge” for the wrongful actions. Rather, you should choose to avoid discussing what happened until you have talked with a lawyer. It is also advisable to be mindful about posting on social media; in fact, you may want to avoid it altogether.

The Cost of a Personal Injury Lawyer

In general, personal injury lawyers will accept cases on contingency. This means you are not required to pay any money upfront. Only if you win a settlement or a verdict will your lawyer deduct their fees from the amount. Prior to a lawyer beginning your case, they will explain their fees and ensure that you understand what you can expect. The Higgins Firm offers complimentary consultations where the details of your case will be reviewed. We will also discuss our fees, strategies, and answer any questions you might have.

When The Accident Happened At Work

In general, if you were injured while working, you will need to file a workers compensation claim. These are not the same as personal injury claims, but do enable you to recover compensation for your medical bills and lost wages. Unlike personal injury claims, you may not be able to recover non-economic damages. In the event of a third party causing you harm, it may be possible to file both types of claims. Due to each situation being unique, it is advisable to ask Davidson County personal injury lawyer to help you explore your legal options.
