If I’m in an accident and the other driver was at fault, should I accept a check for my bodily injuries from his insurance company right away?

Probably not. Due to the shock of a wreck, sometimes you may not realize you are hurt until a few days after the event. Often minor pain does not seem like a big deal. However, when that pain is still bothering you two months later, you may realize that the collision was much more serious.

You do not have to accept what is being offered up-front. It is better to wait to make sure you are completely healed before you accept any money from an insurance company. If you have questions or concerns, call GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys today for a free consultation.
