What to Do After a Car Accident
The moments following a car accident can be very confusing. You may be in pain, unsure of what happened, and have difficulty thinking clearly. Knowing the steps to take following an accident will help you protect yourself and your rights.
Do You Have a Car Accident Claim?
Speaking to a qualified car accident attorney is the only way to really know if you have a claim. When we consider a case, we look for a few things. These include:
Was the accident a result of negligence? Was your accident caused by an individual or business acting carelessly—breaking traffic laws, driving drunk, or driving an inadequately maintained vehicle? We need to be able to prove negligence to win a case.
Did you sustain serious injuries? Back and neck injuries, brain injuries, injuries requiring amputation, and other catastrophic results make it difficult or impossible to go back to your normal life. If you have been badly injured, the compensation from winning a case can help you get back on your feet.
