If you have been injured in an auto accident, construction accident, or even a premises liability accident, one of the greatest mistakes you could make is not reporting your injuries to police or law enforcement immediately afterward. Many people assume that because they do not feel pain at the moment, they have not been injured. This is not always the case! Internal injuries, or even small cuts or scratches could become greater medical problems if left untreated, and because you did not report the accident, you would not be entitled to pursue compensation to help pay for doctor bills or medical treatments.
The first thing you need to remember in the event of any type of accident is that you must report it to the police. Even if you think you may be at fault, with the help of an injury lawyer, you could still have the chance of receiving recovery payments for your damages. If you do not report an accident and discover at a later time that you have sustained injuries or that more damage was caused to your car than originally thought, your insurance company could deny compensation for your claims. Do not wait until it is too late. You could have as little as 30 days to report an accident! The strongest advice we can give is quick and simple: Your rights are more protected when you report an accident and are represented by a lawyer.
