Auto Accidents Can Have Serious Consequences

Getting in a car or truck accident can be life-changing. If you sustain a serious injury (or if one develops later on), things like medical expenses, missed work, property damage and harassment from insurance companies can affect your livelihood for the worse.

If the accident was a result of another's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. We are Robert W. Hanson Attorney, and we help those in Albertville, Alabama, and the surrounding areas file a personal injury claim from these accidents. Whether this process requires negotiation or litigation, attorney Robert W. Hanson is available to help.

Immediately After An Accident

If you are in an accident, try to get these things done at the scene:

  • Call the police. Having a formal police report will give us an official report we can build your case from.
  • Seek medical treatment. No matter how minor your injuries may seem, get checked out by a professional. Injuries may develop at a later time as a result of the accident, and you want to be prepared.
  • Get the information from the other party. As with any accident, it is important to get the personal and insurance information from the other party.
  • Take pictures. As a backup to the police report, take pictures of your own of the accident, if you are able. If the police miss anything, we could find it in your records.

Insurance Companies Look Out For Themselves — Not You

More than anything, it is important you do not take any settlement or offer from insurance companies without consulting a lawyer. They do not have your best interests in mind. They want to close your insurance claim as soon as possible with as little money spent as possible. Let an attorney like Mr. Hanson decide if any settlement is good enough to take. Otherwise, you could be leaving money that could aid your recovery and your expenses on the table.
