If I have been injured in a car accident, do I have to worry about deadlines?

Heather La DieuUnfortunately, the answer is, yes!

After you have been injured in car accident, the last thing you want to think about is deadlines. However, most insurance companies require you to notify them that you have been in an accident within 24 hours of the accident or as soon as practical.

In addition, if you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, insurance companies require you to fill out a no-fault application generally within 30 days from the date of the accident.

After you have been injured in an accident, there are many issues to deal with, including talking to your employer about missing time from work, attending medical appointments, filing a police report, talking to a mechanic about repairing the damage to your vehicle, etc. The last thing you want to worry about is deadlines.

However, the alternative is you could lose out on medical and lost wage benefits.

That is why it is important to speak to an attorney after you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident. If you would like a free consultation, please call Heather La Dieu at (315) 471-1664.
