Helping You Recover From Your Injuries From A Car Accident
Founding attorney John Robinson works with accident reconstructionists who are able to determine the cause of an accident. Accident reconstruction is often a crucial and effective component of an injury case, as it can weaken the position of the insurance company’s defense.
Though insurance companies spend millions on advertising that promotes them as helpful, caring or neighborly, the truth is the insurance adjuster will look for a way to pay you as little as possible for your injuries. Before becoming a personal injury lawyer, John Robinson worked as a defense lawyer for insurance companies. Through that experience, he gained insight that enables him to combat the tactics insurance companies use to diminish or deny claims.

Five Things To Do After A Car Accident
At Robinson Salyers, PLLC, we are proven trial lawyers who have decades of experience helping the victims of car accidents in Shelbyville, Frankfort and throughout central Kentucky recover the compensation they deserve.
After a car accident, we can help you understand your rights and options while giving you peace of mind during a stressful time. In the immediate aftermath of your car accident, however, there are a few things that you can do to help strengthen your case.
1. Report The Car Accident To Police.
Even if the car accident does not seem that serious, it is still wise to contact police and report the accident. The responding officer will then take your statement and the statement of the driver who hit you. This official record is important, because it will remain in place if the other driver tries to change their story later.
2. Seek Medical Attention As Soon As Possible.
You may think you are fine, but then fast-forward a few days or weeks, and suddenly you are unable to get out of bed. When a doctor evaluates your injuries, you will be preserving crucial evidence that can help prove the severity of your injuries and your expected financial losses from missed work and medical bills. Additionally, you should follow your doctor’s prescribed treatment to prove that you are doing everything possible to aid your recovery.

3. Take Pictures Of The Accident Scene.
If you are able, you should use the camera on your phone to take pictures of any damage to your car and the other car, including skid marks on the road. Additionally, take pictures of any visible injuries that you have, like cuts and bruises. This can help in the accident investigation, because the accident scene will not be preserved for long.
4. Report The Car Accident To Your Insurance Company.
You should always report an accident to your insurance company so they have a record of it. However, always be mindful about what you say to insurance adjusters, so that they do not have an opportunity to use your words against you and unfairly dispute your claim.
5. Talk To An Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer.
We can enforce your rights and talk to insurance adjusters on your behalf to ensure that they treat you with respect. Additionally, we will work with experienced accident reconstruction specialists and coordinate your insurance coverage to make sure you get the medical care you need. Our car accident attorneys will always seek to maximize the amount of money in your pocket and will never settle your case when it is not in your best interest.
