Motor vehicle personal injury cases are taken on a contingent fee basis. This means there is no attorney’s fee unless you receive a settlement or award.
Automobile accidents are an unfortunate occurrence that most of us will experience at some point. When you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident due to no fault of your own, it’s important to know what to do at the scene and in the days to follow. These actions can have an effect on what we receive in court and how the insurance company handles your case.
First, always call the police. Inform the telephone operator how many people are injured. Turn on your emergency flashers to warn approaching traffic and wait for the police to arrive. When the officer arrives, file a report, and stay until the officer tells you it is ok to leave. If there are any witnesses, get their contact information. The police will provide an exchange sheet with all of the important information you will need to file the insurance claim: the other driver’s name, address, driver’s license plate number, insurance information, and driver’s license number. Get the incident number from the police and take notes about how the accident occurred.
Stay at the scene until the police officer says you can leave. If anyone is injured and you are trained in administering first aid, try to help, but do not move the injured person.
Even if you think you are at fault, do not admit liability. There may be factors involved which you may not know which played a role in the accident. It may turn out that the other driver was more at fault than you. Also, do not make statements to anybody at the accident except for police. Finally, seek medical care for your injuries.
