Car Accident? Don’t Panic!

Leaving the scene of an accident is against the law in every state.

As a driver, you must remain at the scene until law enforcement arrives. Even if the driver speeds away after a crash, making it a hit-and-run, stay there and report it yourself.

  • Ensure Safety: If anyone is injured, call the police immediately and tell them you need medical assistance. 
  • Ask Questions: Make as many notes as you can about the accident itself.
    • Get information about the other vehicles involved, such as license plate numbers, make, and model.
    • Get the names and badge numbers of any police officers who respond to the scene.
  • Document the Accident and Protect Evidence: Take pictures. If you do not have a camera, ask a passenger or bystander to take the photos. Images taken from the scene will be the most valuable proof of the incident. 
  • Consider Insurance: Contact your own insurance company as quickly as possible. If you feel, for any reason, that your company may not be willing to cover the accident, you should contact a personal injury attorney beforehand. 

An experienced car accident attorney can help you figure out what damages you are eligible to collect, and this compensation can come as a result of:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Punitive damages

Keep In Mind: every state has a deadline for making personal injury claims. It’s known as a statute of limitations, and it will apply as soon as you know you’re injured.

Timing is very crucial because statutes of limitations affect how long you have to file a claim. Don’t wait; contact us today!

The initial consultation is always FREE. If the case proceeds, there is no legal fee unless we are successful in getting you money. No Fees or Costs Unless We Win! Your Family Counts On You, And You Count On Us!
