Philadelphia, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/30/2014 -- After experiencing an automobile accident, the seconds, minutes, days and years that follow can be stressful and confusing. No matter how stressful the time following and accident can be, it does not compare to the amount of mistakes that can be made, which can directly affect the life of a civil case. The amount of time between the actual accident and when an attorney gets involved can be great. However, according to Rand Spear, the Accident Lawyer of Philadelphia, there are steps an accident victim can follow that could help injury claims down the road.
Following an automobile accident, Rand Spear, the Accident Lawyer suggests that individuals refrain from giving a statement on the accident to the other insurance company. Often times, the defendant’s insurance company tries to obtain a statement before the victim has a chance to consult with a personal injury lawyer.
Victims of an automobile accident, or any personal injury for that matter, should always seek medical treatment instead of refusing it. The pain associated with the accident may seem minor at first; however, it may become greater over time. Refusing medical treatment immediately following the accident can be used against a victim because it will become difficult for the lawyer to link the accident to an injury that surfaces later on.
When seeking medical treatment, it is important to keep track of all documents. According to Rand Spear, the Accident Lawyer, documenting and tracking medical treatments can be difficult, but it will ultimately pay off in the end. Written logs can be used in court as evidence of any injuries caused by the accident.
