Car Accidents

Nobody wants to be involved in an accident. Even more, nobody wants to be injured because of an accident. However, if you were injured because of another person’s negligent driving, you may be entitled to money damages. It is important to remember that your claim begins the moment that the impact occurred, not after. Obtain the full information from the other driver, including all insurance information. Call the police and fill out a police report immediately. It is best if the report is filled out at the scene where the accident occurred, but if that is not an option, go to the police station and be sure to report the accident as quickly as possible. Document the accident and your injuries by taking photographs of everything. Again, this is best done while still at the scene, but if that is not possible, take the pictures immediately. Also be sure to preserve any part of the car, exterior or interior, which played a role in your accident. These photographs and objects may be useful during the prosecution of your case.

If you are injured, it is important to obtain medical attention immediately. Ambulance services, and hospital emergency room care are important parts of your case and will be included in your claim. Follow the instructions and orders of your doctors and therapists. Remember to be honest and tell any medical provider treating you why and how you were injured, and completely inform them on all of your symptoms, conditions and areas of injury.

The road to recovery is typically long and can be, unfortunately, painful. When you prove your case, the law is designed to compensate you for not only the pain and suffering that you experienced but also the effects that your injuries had on your normal life.
