Mistakes To Avoid After A Bus Accident
Were you or a loved one injured while riding the bus in New York? You may be entitled to compensation but in order to protect your rights, make sure you avoid these common mistakes. Watch this video to learn about the mistakes to avoid after a bus accident.
The common mistakes that people will make when seriously injured in a bus accident in New York is not telling the bus driver or the police officer that they were on the bus. When you’re in a bus accident, there are many people involved, and at a later date you want to make sure that you can prove you were on that bus. It’s very important when they take the names, be it the police officer or the driver or whoever else is there investigating the accident, that your name appears on the list of people on the bus when that accident occurred.
The second mistake would be not going immediately to medical care. Even if you think that, perhaps you’re not injured and nothing’s bothering you, you never really know because you are kind of in shock when you’re in an accident. Go to the hospital; let them check you out. Go to your private physician; let them check you out. Make sure that you’re physically okay. Bear in mind, these medical bills are paid for by the insurances. This will not come out of your pocket. It doesn’t cost you anything to make sure you’re healthy, and it’s very important to make sure you are.
Another mistake is talking to the insurance people. Don’t talk to insurance companies; they’re not your friend. Hire a lawyer. The lawyer will take care of you. The lawyer will represent you. The lawyer will do the best for you to make sure all your rights and benefits are protected and that the insurances pay out everything that you deserve for the injuries that you sustained due to this bus accident.
