The majority of the cases our firm handles involves some sort of vehicle collision. Generally speaking, these types of cases involve careless rather than intentional misconduct. Vehicle or transportation negligence-related cases include, motor vehicle accidents, commercial trucking collisions, motorcycle accidents, boat accidents, bicycle accidents, public transportation accidents, and virtually any other serious injury caused by the failure of a person, public entity, or business to take reasonable care to prevent injury.
WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER THE ACCIDENT?
Know that the insurance company that represents the at-fault driver in the accident has an obligation to pay the lowest possible settlement amount.
To do this, insurance companies will achieve their objective by utilizing a number of tactics including encouraging fast settlements, encouraging claimants to provide recorded statements, and other actions that ultimately affect the ability to achieve a fair settlement.
Here are recommendations in order to preserve the chance to arrive at a fair settlement:
SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION
So often this step is overlooked. Before you do anything else, seek medical attention for your injuries.
REPORT THE ACCIDENT TO THE POLICE
The police don't always come to the scene of the accident. It is your job to make sure you
report the accident to the police and obtain a police report.
GATHER THE DOCUMENTS
The information is key. Gather as much information as possible including the insurance
and contact information of the at-fault party, photographs, and contact information of witnesses.
