Very few of us escape being involved in some type of vehicular accident at one time or another. Automobile accidents are a leading cause of catastrophic injuries. Often, these accidents occur suddenly and without warning. They are often unavoidable and can be devastating. Many automobile accidents are serious or even fatal; some are less severe. Nevertheless, when an auto accident happens to you, experienced and professional legal counsel is essential to ensure that you are fairly and reasonably compensated for your injuries and losses.
Automobile accidents can leave the most calm and composed motorists distressed, stunned and shaken. However, it is very important to remain calm. The first few calls that you should make after you've been involved in an automobile accident should be to the police, your own insurance company and your personal injury lawyer. Even if you think the accident was a "minor" one call the police. Get as much information that you can. Be sure to take note of the name, address, phone number and insurance information of the other driver or drivers involved in the accident. It is also very important to get the names, addresses and telephone numbers of witnesses, if you can. If you have a camera or a cell phone with a camera, take pictures if you can. Photograph the accident scene and the damage to the vehicles involved in the accident. If you need medical attention, be sure to call for an ambulance and paramedics immediately. Finally, if you have been injured and you believe that it was the other driver's fault, speak with an attorney. You have rights, and you will need help dealing with the insurance company.
