If you are seriously injured in a car accident, you could face weeks or even months out of work and outrageous medical bills. If someone else was responsible, you may be entitled to compensation. But the team at Fielding Law says the steps you take right after an accident can have a major impact on the outcome of your case.
First, if you’re in the road, get yourself and your vehicle out of harm’s way if possible, you don’t want to make a bad situation worse. Then check your injuries to determine whether you need emergency medical treatment. If you do, request an ambulance or have someone call for one. Do the same for your passengers. Call police and stay at the scene. If there’s been a serious injury, death, or you suspect that the other driver was under the influence, a written report will be critical to your case. If you can, gather evidence while you’re waiting for the police, take photos, look for security cameras and get witness contact information. Zip it, you can exchange info with the other driver, but don’t say anything else, never apologize or admit wrongdoing. Call your insurance, report the accident and give them the details. Then call an experienced car accident attorney who will fight for you. Contact Fielding Law.
You shouldn’t have to pay out of pocket for someone else’s recklessness. So get Fielding Law in your corner today. Call the personal injury attorneys Fielding Law at (877) 880-4090 or visit us at https://www.fieldinglaw.com
