Auto Accident Information

            You are stopped at a red light and you hear a bang and your car lurches forward.  Or, maybe, you are driving down the road and a car comes out and hits your car in the side.  Do you know what to do?  More importantly, do you know what you should not do?

 

            First, you should:

            ►        Call the police.  It’s “your word against his” without an official report.

►        Get immediate medical attention and ongoing treatment for any injuries sustained.  Insurance companies will often use the excuse that there must

            have been a subsequent injury when there is a “gap” in treatment.

►        If possible, get the names, addresses and phone numbers of any witnesses

            on the scene. 

►        Contact an attorney who specializes in auto accident cases.

 

You should not:

►        Agree to work out property damage or bodily injury issues at the scene

            with the defendant.  People can change their minds and their stories!

 

            The simple fact is that auto insurance companies are not non-profit organizations and they are not your friends.  They don’t hand over cash voluntarily because they are in business to make money and they will use any excuse available to avoid paying a claim. 

            So, if you have been hurt in an automobile, truck or motorcycle accident, you need to speak with someone who has your interests at heart.  You need an advocate who will fight for you to obtain the compensation to which you are entitled.
