Personal Injury Lawyers in Car Accident Claims
A car accident can be a very scary experience for many people and the majority of car accidents involve light passenger vehicles such as cars. After leaving a car accident, there are many questions that come to mind:
What is the first thing I need to do after an accident?
What if the other driver was drunk?
Who had their seatbelts on and what are the implications if no seatbelts were on?
What do I do if my family or friends were injured?
What if my injuries prevent me from working?
How will I be able to continue on with my regular life?
Do I get compensated for my pain and suffering?
Dealing with other drivers after an accident can also be confusing, frustrating and even infuriating. Blame may be shifted around and the process of contacting the police to report the accident, as well as exchanging information may be an intimidating and can potentially affect your legal rights:
Do I admit liability?
What if they refuse to share their information?
What do I do if the other driver fled the scene of the accident?
What do I say if the other driver insists that we do not contact the police?
What happens if the other driver has no insurance?
What if there are multiple vehicles involved with the collision?
It is important to make sure that you collect all the information you can about the driver. If they are being difficult, then at the very least you should note the license plate and the make and model of the vehicle.
DO NOT ADMIT FAULT. Now is not the time to come to conclusions and you may state something inaccurate due to the stress and the frustration of being involved in a collision.
