Being involved in a car accident in West Virginia can be a trying experience. Many hard working West Virginians are injured through no fault of their own and don’t know where to turn.  Many people wonder how to pay for an initial hospital visit or whether to talk to the insurance company. Each person’s journey is unique. The personal injury attorneys at Salango Law, PLLC are here to help. Recovering from a car accident or truck accident can take time.  Sometimes, unfortunately, the injuries are permanent.

Medical Treatment

Always seek immediate medical treatment after an automobile or trucking accident if you’re injured. Some injuries, such as concussions, brain injuries or even muscle strain, may not be immediately apparent and will present weeks or months later. Be sure to inform your doctor of all personal injuries that you believe you may have suffered no matter how small. Documenting the injures is crucial after a car wreck.

Investigation of the Accident

It is important to call law enforcement after an accident. Law enforcement will secure the scene and conduct an investigation into the cause and, typically, will determine who was at fault.  Witnesses will be interviewed and photographs will be taken. These will be important for your case.  In addition, our team of experienced personal injury lawyer will also begin an immediate investigation. In some instances, we will hire experts to analyze the scene of the accident and to inspect the vehicles involved in the collision.

Insurance Company Run Around

At some point in time after the car accident or truck accident, you will probably be contacted by the insurance company. The insurance company will want to take a statement from you and ask information about any injuries you may have from the accident. Please know that you do not need to give a statement or sign a written statement without a personal injury attorney present. Also, you do not have to accept any personal injury settlement offer from the insurance company. It is important to have a personal injury lawyer review any settlement offer before accepting the offer.
