Things You Should Know About Automobile Accidents:
Stop after an automobile accident
If you have been involved in an automobile accident, you are required by law to stop. If you don’t, you may be charged with Evading Responsibility (hit and run). Leaving the scene of an accident is a very serious charge, much more so than a ticket.
You should gather information immediately following an automobile accident, if possible. Get the other driver’s name, address, phone number, date of birth, driver’s license number, insurance company name, car make, model, and license plate number. Also, pay attention for any witnesses to the accident. This could become crucial if there is a dispute as to what happened.
Don’t assume you are to blame
Even if you believe the automobile accident is your fault, don’t volunteer to take the blame, agree to pay for damages, or sign any statement that assigns blame without being advised to do so by an experienced personal injury attorney.
Report the accident
If you have been involved in an automobile accident, make a report with local law enforcement, inform your insurance company and contact an attorney.
Get a medical check-up
We recommend that you and your passengers get a medical check-up following an automobile accident. Some injuries are not immediately apparent, and a physical performed by your physician or other qualified medical professional can check for injuries that went unnoticed right after the accident.
Talk to an attorney first
Before speaking to an insurance company lawyer about how the automobile accident happened; make sure to first consult with a personal injury attorney about your case.
Don’t allow telephone calls to be recorded
Never participate in a recorded telephone call with an insurance company or an insurance company’s lawyer regarding the accident investigation.
Uninsured drivers can be sued
Uninsured drivers who cause automobile accidents that result in personal injuries can be sued. If an uninsured driver caused your automobile accident, contact a personal injury attorney for a review of your case.
You can be sued
If you believe you have caused an automobile accident or know you are being sued, it is essential that you contact your insurance company and obtain legal representation.
