Insurance Companies Are Not Your Friend
When you are in a car accident and need help from insurance companies, you may find that everything you thought was once promised, wasn't actually available to you.
Insurance companies are in this business for a reason; to make money. Sure, insurance is great to have and they can do great things, but when it comes to you receiving max compensation, they will do everything in their power to make sure they save as much money as possible.
If you have already contacted your insurance provider and have noticed suspicious, malicious, negligent or wrongdoing, bring this up to your car accident attorney immediately.

Once you have properly sought medical attention, contact an experienced car accident attorney immediately.
Medical Attention and Documentation
It is common sense to seek medical attention immediately following a car accident or personal injury. Some people do not, and this is a bad decision for a few reasons.
When you experience a car accident or personal injury, seeking medical attention has the following benefits for you and your case:
- Increases your chances of avoiding long-term injuries and disabilities
- Lowers your chances of infection and disease
- Documents the injuries
- Associates your injuries with the accident
The ability to prove your injuries were in result of the accident is crucial, and a wining or losing factor. Seeking medical attention immediately is the best way of doing this.
Proper medical attention consists of:
- Ambulance/Emergency First Responders
- Emergency Room/Hospital
- Urgent Care
Ensure that where you seek medical attention are licensed and currently practicing. Having a friend, family member or loved one is better than no medical attention, but we suggest that anyone who has experienced a personal injury or some type of accident should seek professional care.
Professional medical care is also the most legitimate form of documentation you can use towards winning your case, settlement and or compensation.
Don't Connect Past Injuries with Current Car Accident
If you get into a car accident, and subsequently seek compensation for your medical losses, knowledgeable San Francisco car accident lawyers advise not to exaggerate your losses.
If you already suffer from medical conditions before your accident occurred, never connect the symptoms of any existing medical problems with your car accident. Doing so will only cause the claims adjuster or defense attorney to view your claim as exaggerated and disbelieve anything you say about your injuries and treatment.
In most instances, such a case will have to go to trial, and not the settlement table, before you have the opportunity to recovery that you believe is "fair."
The best San Francisco car collision lawyers will tell you that these complications can be avoided by simply keeping an accurate written record of the medical losses that relate directly to your car accident.
Your credibility will be enhanced at settlement time, resulting in much higher dividends.
