Automobile Accident FAQs

 

I don’t know if I was injured after an accident. What should I do?

A common and disturbing problem some people face after an auto accident is not recognizing their injuries until hours or even days after the incident. These injuries may either go unnoticed because of internal bodily harm or because of adrenaline that clouds a person’s ability to feel pain immediately after an accident. If a person is uncertain, they may still want to be examined by a doctor.

If a person receives an examination after an accident that reveals an injury, they may want to consider a lawsuit to have their injury treatment costs covered.

The other driver’s insurer is asking for my medical records. Should I release them?

In some cases, a driver’s insurance adjuster may want full access to your medical records. However, this information is guarded under powerful privacy laws and should only be given out if absolutely necessary. Before giving away this information, a person should consider a consultation with a personal injury attorney to learn more about their rights and options regarding the release of their medical information.

A car accident can leave someone with serious physical and emotional injuries to overcome. Compensation can help manage these problems, taking care of practical expenses that may otherwise burden an injured motorist.

Can I file for compensation if I wasn’t wearing a seat belt?

When a person is injured in a car accident, they need to prove that they tried to prevent injuries the best they could. Wearing a seat belt is often cited as a first step for injury prevention in the event of a car accident. However, Wisconsin’s seat belt law places a limit on how much the failure to wear a seat belt can affect a person’s claim for compensation.

If you have been injured in a car accident, whether you were wearing a seat belt or not, you may be able to pursue a claim against the person or people responsible. To discuss your options after a car accident that resulted in injuries, contact the Milwaukee car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® today by calling (414) 271-0900.
