How should I respond to a fender-bender?

Auto accidents can be devastating. They can be destructive, injurious and even fatal. Severe accidents may make headlines, but even seemingly minor accidents can result in enough property and bodily damage to be noteworthy. If you have recently been involved in a fender-bender, you may feel disoriented. You may have questions about whether or not your accident is “significant” enough to contact an attorney about. In general, it is better to be safe than sorry.

What does this guidance mean practically? It means that in the wake of all kinds of auto accidents, individuals find themselves in need of an attorney’s expertise. Whether it is to file a personal injury lawsuit against another negligent driver or to aid in obtaining fair compensation from an insurance company, an attorney’s guidance can prove to be invaluable whether your accident was relatively minor or was severe.

Fender-benders may seem like relatively modest occurrences. However, they can result in whiplash, in exacerbation of other medical conditions and in property damage. And in some unfortunate cases, they can result in unjust claims filed by the other party involved in the accident who is ultimately seeking to profit off of a truly minor accident.

Unique circumstances surround every single accident that occurs. Please, if you have questions following a fender-bender, seek out an attorney’s guidance. A consultation with an attorney will help you make a more informed decision about your approach moving forward and commits you to no action whatsoever. At the end of the day, that is a pretty grounded place from which to move forward.
