What to Do After an Auto Accident

After an auto accident, seeking immediate medical attention is crucial, even if you don’t feel hurt. Some injuries take days or even weeks to surface, so it’s essential to be examined by a medical professional. Doing so will prevent any injuries from worsening and provide the necessary medical evidence to support your claim. 

Also, do what you can to take the following steps or ask someone to help:

  • Call the police. Once they arrive, they will write an accident report containing the facts of the incident, which will serve as valuable evidence in your auto accident claim. The police should also send for an ambulance, immediately treating you and transporting you to a hospital for further evaluation and treatment.
  • Get the other driver’s insurance information.  Exchange insurance information with the other driver(s). Be polite, but don’t apologize, even if you think you may have contributed to the accident. 
  • Ask witnesses for their contact information. Get any witnesses’ names and contact information; their testimony can prove invaluable when filing a personal injury claim.
  • Take pictures of the accident site, the damage to the vehicles, and your injuries.
  • Keep copies of all medical documentation regarding the treatment of your injuries.

As soon as you are able, contact Simeone & Miller. Our experienced Washington, D.C., auto accident lawyer will handle all the details of your claim and fight for the maximum compensation you deserve. 

Paying Your Medical Bills After an Auto Accident

After being injured in an auto accident, you are likely wondering, “Who will pay my medical bills?” Even if you caused or contributed to the accident, Personal Injury Protection (or PIP) insurance may cover some medical bills. If you have purchased PIP insurance, it may help you deal with your medical bills and some of your lost wages – this type of no-fault insurance coverage ranges from $2,500 to $100,000

However, the laws surrounding PIP in Washington, D.C., are complex. For example, you may waive your right to file a personal injury claim against the other driver if you file a PIP claim. That makes consulting a seasoned auto accident lawyer essential. Trust Simeone and Miller to assess the circumstances of your crash, determine whether the other driver is at fault, and advise you on the best legal options. 

Additional Damages We Will Fight For

In a successful person injury claim, you may receive compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills and lost wages but also the following:

  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • The loss of enjoyment of life
  • Emotional trauma
  • Loss of consortium

Our experienced auto accident lawyers will fight for compensation that considers all of your losses. 

Time Limits on D.C. Injury Lawsuits

You should know that the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Washington, D.C., is three years. This means that you only have three years from the date of your auto accident to file a personal injury claim against the other driver. In cases involving the government, you may also have to file a Notice of Claim within a specific period of time. The sooner you contact our experienced auto accident lawyers, the sooner we can start working on your claim.
