Auto Accident Checklist

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

The scene of an accident can get chaotic quickly. Your recollection of events might get foggy. Referring to this checklist will benefit you if you’re in an accident.

Stay at the scene

You don’t want to be charged with a hit-and-run. Stay there and give appropriate contact and insurance information to other motorists and/or the police.

Check for injuries

If it appears as if anybody has been hurt, let the dispatcher know that when you call 911. Along with police, they’ll dispatch an ambulance.

Don’t move the vehicles

Unless you’re creating a safety hazard, don’t move the vehicles from where they came to rest. This will allow police to make a more accurate assessment of what happened.

Discussing fault

Don’t discuss fault at the scene. You don’t know how what you say might be understood. If the accident was your fault, don’t admit fault to the investigating officer.

Take photos

If you’re not injured and it’s safe, take photos of the scene and the vehicles. You might need those photos in the future.

If you’re hurt

If you’re hurt, there are legal reasons for getting immediate medical attention. Get transported to the nearest emergency room by ambulance. Paramedics and hospital personnel will document injuries. Don’t worry about the cost. That’s why you have insurance.

Contact your insurer

Notify your insurer that you were in an accident as soon as possible. Don’t delay on this. A significant delay can cause very significant insurance problems.

Don’t talk to the other side

You must cooperate with your own insurer, but the law doesn’t require you to talk with somebody else’s insurer. Never give tape recorded or written statements to them. Tell them to talk with your attorney. You’ll never hear from them again.

Don’t plead guilty

Don’t go to traffic court without an attorney and plead guilty. That guilty plea might be used against you in an injury case in the future.

See a lawyer

If injured, see an injury lawyer. If ticketed, see a traffic lawyer. Don’t enter either world alone.

Keep a copy of this checklist in your car. You don’t want to be in an accident, but you might need it.

Benefits of Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney

Monday, September 1st, 2014

After you’ve been in an accident, you may feel like you’re completely at a loss. From mounting medical expenses to lost wages due to the time you’ve had to take off from work to recover, an accident can really turn your life upside down. It’s important to know that you don’t have to go through the stress of the aftermath of an accident alone. Hiring a personal injury attorney will assure that you have someone on your side to help you get your life back on track. Here are some of the benefits of hiring a personal injury attorney.

Figure Out a Plan – A personal injury attorney will be able to sit down with you at your initial consultation and figure out, step by step, exactly what you need to do to get your life back on track. From talking with your insurance company to investigating the specific details of your case, a personal injury attorney will be able to create an outline of exactly what you need to do next.

Fight For Your Rights – Whether you need someone to talk to your insurer, set up a mediation or file a court case against the responsible party for your accident, a personal injury attorney will be someone who fights for your rights each and every step of the way.

Ensure That You’re Compensated – If you’ve been wrongly victimized in an accident, then you deserve to have your medical expenses and lost wages reimbursed, in addition to possible punitive damages for the pain and suffering that you’ve experienced. A personal injury attorney will ensure that you are compensated and receive what you deserve.

No one anticipates being the victim of an accident, but if it should happen to you, then it’s important that you find someone who will be in your corner and fight for your rights. No victim should have to go through the post-accident experience alone. A personal injury attorney will ensure that you receive what you deserve so that you can get your life back on track.
