You need to contact an attorney right away to start your claim for compensation. 

It is critical to obtain legal counsel as soon as possible if you have been hurt in an automobile accident. A car accident can permanently alter your life. Your injuries may prevent you from working, make you miserable, and leave you with years’ worth of medical debt. You need a skilled lawyer on your side who will fight for just compensation.

A settlement is an agreement on how much money will be awarded as compensation for your losses. This may take place either before or after a vehicle accident case goes to trial. The insurance company may use settlements as a means of avoiding having to pay you the full amount that you would be entitled to at trial. Although the money is paid out in one big sum right once, accepting a settlement instead of waiting for a decision is not always the wiser course of action.
