What to do After a Car Accident

A car crash can be a traumatic experience that can leave you injured, angry, helpless, or looking for answers. It is important not to let the emotional aftermath get in the way of clear judgment or cause you to do something that may compromise the integrity of your case.

The best thing to do is to call us immediately and allow our car accident team to begin working on your case so you can focus on your health and what matters most.

You can bet that the attorneys and staff for the other driver’s insurance company will also be on your case in a flash, thinking of ways to reduce their liability by any means possible. By retaining our firm as soon as possible, you are evening the odds at no cost.

If you are involved in a car accident, the first thing to do is to protect your health and safety by seeking prompt medical treatment for your injuries. After ensuring you are not suffering from severe or progressive injuries, it is essential to:

  • Make Sure the Scene is Adequately Documented: First responders, like police officers, rarely photograph the accident scene and may only do so in the event of a catastrophic injury or death. If you can, it is essential to take plenty of clear photographs of the vehicles involved, the surroundings, the prevailing weather conditions, and anything else that could prove crucial.
  • Preserve Witness Statements: Many times, your collision will have been witnessed by independent witnesses who can attest to what caused the collision, what was said and by whom, and who was ultimately at fault. Independent witnesses are vital to ensure your case doesn’t turn out to be a “he said, she said” situation. Witnesses may or may not be interviewed by police. If you can talk to witnesses about what happened, obtain their contact information so our attorneys may contact and preserve their testimony for future litigation.
  • Preserve Physical Evidence: In some cases, preserving the physical evidence at the scene and on the vehicles involved is vital. Most vehicles on the road today are equipped with onboard computers that can provide invaluable information about the minutes and seconds before the accident, including the speed of vehicles. Our car accident lawyers have the resources and ability to preserve this evidence, including purchasing the entire vehicle, if necessary, and having a qualified expert inspect and download the vehicle data.
  • Don’t Sign Anything or Talk to the Other Side’s Insurance Company: After an accident—before the dust has settled and you’ve had an opportunity to consult an attorney—the insurance company may want to interview you, or they may ask you to sign documents that eliminate your ability to pursue a case. Do not give a statement or sign anything until you’ve had an opportunity to consult a qualified attorney. You should reject nominal settlements offered by insurance companies after an auto collision until you’ve had an opportunity to consult (for free) with our attorneys at The Simon Law Firm.
  • Try to Stay Calm and Consult Our Attorneys: Families’ lives are often in disarray following a serious car accident due to the sudden loss of life or a catastrophic injury. It is difficult, if not impossible, to navigate a stressful new reality. Let us help you preserve important evidence and deal with the insurance companies so that you can focus on what matters most.

Car Crash Injuries

Due to the forceful dynamics of the car accident, how the body was jolted in the impact, or the underlying makeup of a person’s body, car accidents can result in severe or even permanent injuries.

The lawyer handling your case must understand the following:

  1. The nature and cause of the injury you’ve suffered
  2. How that injury may affect your health or well-being in the future
  3. The substantial modifications you’ll have to make to go on living in the future

Attorneys at The Simon Law Firm, P.C. are experienced in handling any injury or wrongful death claim. The injuries we’ve handled before include:

  • Brain injury
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Broken bones

Whether car crashes are caused by driving under the influence (DUI) or simple inattention, they can take a serious toll on drivers. If you have been injured through no fault of your own, you have the right to seek just compensation for your injuries.

Having auto accident attorneys, like those at The Simon Law Firm, P.C., by your side in court is your best chance of success.
