An auto accident can be one of the most traumatic experiences someone will ever face. After being involved in a vehicle collision many assume that there is plenty of time to gather one’s self, seek medical treatment, and pursue their auto insurance claim after they have collected all of the necessary information. Atlanta’s WSBTV Channel 2 reporter Jim Strickland reported on the deadline imposed by some insurance companies limiting the amount of time available to file an insurance claim. According to the report, some insurance companies have included language in their policies limiting the time available to report an accident to as little as thirty days. This practice is particularly troubling because many clients do not realize the full extent of their injuries until several months into their treatment.
If you have been involved in a car accident it is important to obtain assistance as soon as possible. Douglasville Personal Injury Lawyers specializes in injuries resulting from auto accidents.
