Maybe you were in a minor fender-bender. After the accident you felt fine and decided not to file a claim, but the next day you were in agony. This is a scenario that, unfortunately, happens all too often. Even minor accidents can lead to debilitating injuries.
If you’re someone who drives through Barrie every day but recently got into an accident that inflicted you with life-changing injuries, it’s important that you talk to a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. If you were slowing down to match the speed limits in one of Barrie’s many school zones and another driver that was speeding rear-ended you, you obviously were not at fault. However, it’s easy in times of duress to second-guess your self and hesitate to place blame. Instead of hesitating, it’s important that you get in touch with a car accident lawyer in Barrie. Always trust your instincts; if you think the other party was the negligent one, pursue it. A lawyer can give you a better idea of who was in the wrong and if it wasn’t you, can advise you on the next step in your legal course of action.
Once you’ve been in a car accident, it’s going to seem like there are a ton of things you need to do right away in regards to insurance claims and law enforcement involvement (if merited). Before you do any of that, however, the best thing you can do is get in touch with one of our law firms, located in Barrie, that specialize in personal injury. Our lawyers work on a contingency basis, which means that unless your claim is settled, you won’t be paying any fees. Contacting our lawyers as soon as possible after a car accident minimizes the risk that you’ll sign documentation that you shouldn’t have signed.
