Our Personal Injury practice is limited to serious injuries and wrongful death as a result of auto or motorcycle accidents. We have successfully resolved a variety of cases and have the skill to take on big insurance companies.
If you do find yourself in a car accident and panic in the midst of the chaos, stay calm and remember what you shouldn’t do, and remember, always contact a car accident lawyer and file a claim with your personal injury attorney.
- Don’t Leave The Scene: No matter if you’re in a hurry, on your way to work or just don’t want to deal with the car accident, it is illegal to flee the scene until the proper authorities arrive. By leaving the scene, you automatically get yourself a misdemeanor plus fines — and even potential jail time.
- Don’t Admit Fault: Regardless if it was your fault or not, don’t apologize to the people in the other vehicle. Saying “I’m sorry,” can amount to admitting fault after an accident. Law enforcement is there to make sense of the accident. Let them do all the work. If passengers are hurt and you admit an apology, you could be ruled at fault and possibly will need a lawyer if the other vehicle presses charges.
- Don’t Forget To Follow Up: You may want to forget about the traumatic experience as soon as you can walk away, but unfortunately you may need to deal with medical issues, insurance claims and other complications of the auto accident. If you have persistent pain, you should see a doctor and touch base with a lawyer if you think the medical bills will be hefty. If the other driver is lawyering up, you should too. Within a few hours of the accident, you should contact a car accident attorney and your insurance company. Many insurance companies have limited windows of when you can do so. The earliest is always better.
