Car Accident Lawyer In Phoenix Who Knows The System

Have you been injured in a car accident that wasn’t your fault? If you’ve been in a car accident and have sustained physical and mental injuries and experienced financial loss, then you may be entitled to receive financial compensation.

Although your automobile insurance company must be involved, do not trust them to have your best interests in mind. The Molina Law Group are expert car accident lawyers in Phoenix who will make sure that you receive every dollar you deserve. We’ll never ask for any money up front. If you don’t recover, we don’t get paid. Let us fight for your rights while you focus on your recovery.

What To Do After A Car Accident

If you’re ever injured in a car accident, then it’s important that you do the following:

  1. Call The Police

Call law enforcement to the scene of the accident as soon as possible. They’ll get the details of the accident and file a police report, which will be important if there is a lawsuit.

  1. Seek Emergency Medical Treatment

Seeking medical treatment should be a top priority following an accident. Our office has working relationships with local doctors who will treat you on a contingency basis. That means you won’t have to pay any doctor’s fees unless you recover financial compensation. However, if you prefer, you may visit your doctor or go to the nearest emergency room.

Tell the doctor exactly what happened in as much detail as possible. Even if you are not feeling pain right after the accident, seek treatment anyway. You may be in shock, which can hide pain that you’ll feel later on. Also, if you avoid seeking treatment right away, the responsible party’s insurance company will use that as evidence that your injuries are not as bad as you claim.

Be sure to make follow-up appointments with the doctor’s office so they can monitor your recovery.

  1. Take Photographs

If you’re able to, take photographs at the scene of the accident with your phone. Photograph your injuries and any damage done to your car. Be sure to take photos of anything that may have contributed to the accident (e.g., a hidden stop sign or traffic light). If the accident occurred on a commercial property (e.g., the parking lot of a bank or a store) then you should ask if there are video cameras on the premises that may have recorded the incident.

  1. Call Your Insurance Provider

Call your insurance provider as soon as you can after the accident to let them know that the accident has occurred. They’ll want to know about your injuries and damage done to the car. They’ll also tell you where to go to have your car repaired.

  1. Keep Accident Paperwork Organized

As you continue to receive treatment for your injuries, make sure you collect medical records and invoices from your doctor, physical therapist, pharmacist, and any other medical professionals you visit. Ask how long your treatment will last and if they can provide an estimate of costs. You also want to estimate any lost wages if you’re missing time from work due to your injuries. All of this will help your Phoenix Arizona car accident lawyer determine how much compensation you deserve.

Answers To Common Questions About Car Accidents

How Long After My Car Accident Occurred Can I Claim Injuries?

Statutes of limitations vary among each of the states and at the federal level. In Arizona, there is a 2-year statute of limitations for personal injury cases. This time starts from the date of the event, which is also known as “cause of action.” If you are nearing the statute of limitations on injuries that you may have sustained in a car accident, then be sure to contact us so we can give you advice on your best course of action.

I Didn’t Go To The Doctor Immediately After The Car Accident. What Should I Do Now?

In many cases, you may be in shock immediately after a car accident. Shock is your body’s way of masking immediate pain. You may think that you’re fine only to find out later that you have sustained substantial injuries.

The fact that you didn’t seek medical treatment right away does not mean that you won’t be able to seek financial compensation. If you didn’t go to the doctor right away, then call the experienced Phoenix Arizona car accident lawyers at Molina Law Group today to learn what your next best steps are.

How Long Do I Have To Report A Car Accident To My Car Insurance Company?

The exact number of days you have to report a car accident varies among insurance providers, but in general, you should report it as soon as possible. Most insurance companies want you to report the incident within 30 days, although in some cases the time period may be as long as 3 years. We recommend checking your specific policy to know for certain how long you have to report an incident.

How Long Does It Take To File A Police Report?

Police officers are required to file accident reports within 24 hours if there was a death, an injury, damage exceeding $1,000, or if a citation was issued. Ask the police officer how long it will be before you are able to pick up a copy of the report. In most cases, you should be able to get a copy within 3 to 5 business days.
