We know that the last thing you wanted to be worrying about was trying to get compensation for injuries you sustained after an accident. We also know that medical bills are not the only accident-related expense you have. Here is the thing – we know your first priority is to get medical emergencies handled, but then you are going to need to focus on staying financially stable.

At the Law Offices of Eugene G. Bruno, we want to go over some things you need to know about car accidents with injuries so you are prepared. We want you to know that our qualified and experienced team will have your back so you can get the compensation you deserve. When you need a car accident attorney in San Diego, we are ready.

Some Key Things

In an accident, so many things are happening at once. First, always seek medical attention for your injuries. Do not put that off. Beyond that, here are some things to remember.

  • The police report – get the police report as soon as you can. This may mean doing so once you leave the hospital. If your injuries are not serious enough to leave immediately, get the report at the scene. Never leave before all parties agree and a report is filed.
  • Start thinking about an attorney – after medical attention, your next thought should be on getting an attorney before speaking to insurance companies. Remember, the goal of insurance companies is to pay as little as possible in a settlement. They can trap you in your words and they will always have your statements recorded.
  • Your medical treatment – if a doctor says you need to keep treatment going, listen to them. Even though you may feel better, you do not know the full extent of your injuries. Doctors are qualified to treat you and you do not want gaps in your treatment. Insurance companies will seize on this to deny coverage.
  • Yourself first, car second – we know your vehicle is important to you, but many people do not focus on their personal health because they are too busy trying to get a new car after an accident. What is more important in the long run? A skilled attorney will be able to guide you down the best path to take care of yourself and get you in an operating vehicle again.
