Information about Car Accidents
Injured in a car crash?
A serious car accident can be a life-changing event. Serious or permanent injuries are often the tragic outcome of the actions of a negligent driver, whether they were speeding, driving drunk or distracted while behind the wheel. Many people suffer serious injuries or families lose a treasured loved one in a wrongful death. A number of factors contribute to the risk of a car accident including the vehicle design, the speed at which the car is travelling, road design, weather, and the skill of the driver or the level of impairment.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, timing is often an important element in successfully prosecuting your personal injury case. Statements need to be obtained from witnesses while the events are still fresh in their minds. The accident scene needs to be photographed whenever possible. The vehicles involved in the accident must be photographed and inspected by a professional accident investigator if there is any question regarding liability.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car crash, and to protect your rights, you should not give a statement to an insurance adjuster until you have contacted an attorney. Our firm has been involved in countless car accident injury claims, and it is advised that your first action is to get legal representation to manage your case. Do not allow the insurance company to gain access to your medical records or to an interview, either by phone or in person without legal representation. In cases in which the insurance company will be paying damages, they represent the responsible driver – not you. You need to have your interests protected by a law firm with a great deal of insight and skill in the claims process.
