If you are the affected party, you will find yourself with a barely dried fiberglass cast on your arm or leg and surrounded by questions, requests, and paperwork from doctors, law officers, and insurance companies.
It can be such an emotionally draining experience since most of the time in the aftermath of an accident we feel confused and overwhelmed by our surroundings. Everyone is focused on doing their jobs, and no one provides answers to questions that are important to you.

Bear in mind that it’s still not a free of charge service at all because you still will have to cover some expenses related to the case as the fees doctors who are in charge of reviewing your records, and all the investigation fees gathered independently from insurance companies.
There is no fault in admitting our shortcomings or lack of knowledge on some topics. This basic principle applies to legal matters.
