If you or a loved one are injured in an automobile accident, please seek medical attention and treatment as soon as possible after your accident. While getting medical treatment is primarily for your health and safety, it is also to ensure that adequate and complete medical records exist to document your injuries. Your attorney will need these records as they proceed with your automobile insurance claim and fight to secure the compensation to which you deserve. Without medical records, the insurance company will assume you were either not hurt or not hurt that badly and will use the lack of medical records against you. Once you have taken care of your medical needs, however, you should immediately call Hollis, Wright, Clay and Vail, P.C. and ask to speak with one of our attorneys so you can determine how to proceed.Getting Help from Trusted Attorneys
