Car Accident In a Luxurious Car? Here Are Legal Some Tips #beverlyhills #beverlyhillsmagazine #bevhillsmag #caraccident #accidentclaims #accidentinjuries #legaltips #medicalbills

A car accident is never an experience you want to have. When it is an accident in a high-value luxury car, the impact is even more painful. Not only have you hurt yourself, but you have also damaged an expensive asset that is likely going to cost just as much as your medical bills to repair.

 Even though modern luxury vehicles come with a number of safety features and all kinds of passenger-protection amenities, there are some accidents that you just can’t protect yourself from. For instance, in the wintertime when snow builds up on the road and cars skid over them even as they brake really hard, this often leads to the car sliding off the road and flipping over. In the case that it lands on its tires the passengers are relatively safe but if it lands on the roof, it can be a very bad situation. Similarly, a head-on collision with a commercial vehicle at high speed also causes a lot of damage for both the passengers and the vehicle. If you have been in a car accident, this is what you need to do to get back on track quickly.

1.  Get Medical Assistance

Car accidents can have extremely bad injuries. The main challenge is being able to detect these injuries and carry out the right treatment. Among some of the worst accident injuries are those that impact soft tissue and ligaments. This can include things like whiplash, microfractures, and also concussions. Your regular family doctor or the local physician is not going to be able to treat these problems. You need to get in touch with an emergency medicine specialist or an accident emergency specialist and have them examine your head to toe. These professionals are more familiar with problems after accidents and they can pinpoint the small things which have a huge impact that a regular doctor would otherwise overlook. Whether you have insurance coverage or you use cash for this, it is critical to get the right medical assistance.

2.  Get Legal Help

Even in the case that you have had an accident on your own, there is someone who can be held responsible. For instance, if it was the road conditions that caused it, the local municipality will be responsible, if it was poor lighting or a faulty traffic light, the concerned parties will be held responsible. As advised by Foyle Legal, if you find yourself involved in an accident with another vehicle, avoid discussing anything on the spot with the other driver or passengers. Definitely do not talk about whose fault it was or what caused the accident. You don’t want to say anything that can be used against you later on in the court. Let your advocate talk on your behalf. At the time of the accident, your job is to get the credentials of the other party and then get medical help.

3.  Manage The Case

Once you have the other parties’ information you need to file a police report. This will be done at the nearest police station from where the accident occurred. Even if you are out of your hometown, you need to get it done right then and there as this will be a crucial bit of information if you need to go to court later. Also, if you can manage it, you should take pictures, videos, and accounts of eye-witnesses of the accident to help determine who the real culprit is. The more evidence you have the easier it will be to pursue the case whether that is in court, with police, or with the insurance company.

4.  Pursue The Matter

Tackling an accident claim case in court can be quite a lengthy procedure. More importantly, you also don’t have a lot of time to put things into motion. Ideally, you should be taking the issue to court as soon as possible. In most states there is a very short time limit for accident claims, meaning that within a month or two you need to file the case in court for it to be valid. In some areas, the time limit can be a bit more relaxed but generally, the faster you get it to court, the better your chances. You don’t want to leave it to the last minute in any circumstance.

Just like any matter that is taken to court, expect this case to take some time. Especially if there are complicated injuries involved, it can take a while for things to be sorted out. For lengthy cases, it is not uncommon for the proceedings to take a year or more. However, if you have the right legal coverage and you have compiled your case correctly there is a high chance that you can get through the entire process in a matter of days.
