Injured in Lima Car Accident
While we do not have many details regarding this accident, we would advise those injured to contact a lawyer as soon as possible.
There are several things that happen directly after an accident such as this that a lawyer can take care of, making the rest of the legal process easier. Injured victims usually receive phone calls from the insurance company, offering them quick settlements for their injuries. While this can seem like an attractive option at the time, this is a way that the insurance company takes advantage of injured accident victims.
It is important to not make any statements or sign any documents that the insurance company provides you until a lawyer looks over them. Agreeing to a quick settlement can result in a failure to receive the compensation that you need for the full treatment of your injuries.
