Important Information If You've Been in a Car Accident in Cleveland, Ohio:

You need to see a doctor right away. Don't wait. A doctor's visit is not just for medical reasons. The longer the time between the accident date and the date you first go to the doctor, the more the insurance company will try and hold it against you.

-You to need see the right doctor. Not all doctors have practices that will provide the specific kind of care that accident patients needs. You will usually not receive the right treatment from a family doctor or primary care physician that you will from a doctor who specializes in treating people who have been injured in an auto accident.

-You need to go to all of the doctor and physical therapy appointments that are prescribed for you. If you fail to complete the treatment program, you may not heal as quickly or even at all, and you'll likely receive less from the settlement.

-The insurance company adjuster is NOT there to help you. He or she has one job- to convince you to settle your case for as little as possible, whether it is fair to you or not.

-Be careful what you say to insurance company. Let your attorney do the talking.

-The insurance company adjusters may try to get you into settling your case before your medical treatment is finished or say you don't need a lawyer. This is False! First make sure to call Craig W. Smotzer or The Law Office of Craig W. Smotzer, LLC.
