Picture you are driving home from work on the freeway. Not only is the usual traffic packing the lanes, but one is also undergoing construction. As you change lanes, you get closer to the construction zone but are still careful to follow the warning signs and traffic flow. Regardless of your caution, heavy debris from the construction zone suddenly flies toward you, breaking through your windows and injuring you. Not only do you need to pay off new medical bills, but you also need to cover the damage to your car and take time off work.
If you are hit by flying debris on the freeway, there is a significant risk of receiving severe injuries and facing extreme costs. In these circumstances, you will likely benefit from speaking with a representative at Younglove Law Group. Our personal injury lawyers have significant experience in injury law, including vehicle and construction accidents. Our clients also trust us to dedicate our time and efforts toward their success, helping them receive the compensation they need to recover.
Seek Medical Attention for Your Injuries
After you have been injured by flying debris, we strongly recommend you seek medical attention as soon as possible, as this is necessary to prioritize your recovery and overall health. Your medical professionals can help identify causes, find latent injuries, recommend treatment plans, and refer you to other helpful specialists whenever necessary.
Whether you take legal action against the responsible party or not, seeking medical attention is essential to recover fully. However, you are more likely to receive adequate compensation for your losses and injuries if you seek medical attention and take legal action.
If you use the legal process, we recommend holding onto any medical bills and relevant doctor’s notes until the proceedings close. Additionally, if you need help finding a trustworthy and experienced medical practitioner, your personal injury lawyer can provide you with a referral.
Avoid Discussing Your Circumstances With Others
If you choose to take legal action against the responsible party, we recommend you avoid discussing your circumstances with anyone other than your lawyer. Accepting a settlement from your insurance company can keep you from receiving the compensation you need to make a complete recovery. Additionally, speaking with friends and family may result in shared information being used against you.
By speaking with and retaining a lawyer, you are practicing your right to attorney-client privilege and gaining access to a great deal of privacy. This allows you to discuss all information relevant to your case without introducing significant risk to your success.
Stay Off Social Media
Staying off social media is highly recommended whenever you are involved in legal matters. The court can require you to share any information, whether you have a private account, feel your posts are unrelated, or something else. Any information you share can be used against you.
We recommend logging off or disabling your social media accounts, especially if you think you will be tempted to use them. Again, even when your account is set to private, information can leak that can harm your claim.
Speak With a Lawyer
When you take legal action, we suggest you work with a lawyer. In the case of severe injuries, we recommend you work with a personal injury lawyer for assistance. Your attorney will likely be able to help you in several ways throughout this legal process, including speaking on your behalf, avoiding mistakes, completing and filing paperwork, and providing helpful referrals. In addition to generally streamlining the legal process on your behalf, your lawyer will be able to collect and analyze any relevant information related to your claims.
Please refrain from representing yourself during legal proceedings. Our lawyers are far more likely to help you win the compensation you deserve. If you represent yourself, you risk misrepresenting the case and reducing the compensatory value of your claims. Please get in touch with a lawyer as soon as possible to improve your odds of success during the legal process.
