What Can You Do for a Friend or Family Member?
The days after an accident can be hectic and stressful. Your friend or relative is probably dealing with the pain of their injuries, not to mention the mounting medical bills and pushy insurance agents knocking at their door. As a loved one looking on, all you want to do is help them get back to a normal life.
There are a few things you can do to help:
- Make time to discuss hiring an attorney with your friend or loved one. Ultimately, it's their decision, but be sure they understand the time limits for their injury claim. Evidence can disappear quickly. By calling us, we can send our investigators out quickly to prevent that from happening.
- If they decide to hire an attorney, listen to their point of view and help them organize their information as best you can. Remember to include details about:
- Unpaid Medical Bills
- Past/Future Surgeries
- Lost Wages
- Future Healthcare Costs
- Physical Therapy
- Damage to Their Car
- And more
- Help them understand what to say and sign when dealing with an insurance company. Here are a few reminders:
- Review All Paperwork with an Attorney
- Never Record a Statement
- Call for Legal Help Immediately
