A car accident can be a traumatic experience. The advice below will help protect you physically and legally.
Protecting Your Rights in Personal Injury
Cases in Tampa
Once your car is in a safe location attempt to assess the injuries of all parties involved in the wreck. If someone has sustained severe injuries, call 911. Do not attempt to move injured people unless they are in the way of immediate danger.
After calling 911, you will need to fill out a formal report about the accident. If there were witnesses around at the time of the incident, try to keep them nearby until the police arrive. Trade insurance information with the other parties involved, and make sure you take pictures of the scene of the accident.
Should you contact an attorney?
Attorneys can help you with many aspects of an auto accident. They will be able to determine whether or not you have a strong case against the other parties involved as well as help you deal with your insurance company.
Deciding who is at fault is not something that should be handled at the scene of the accident. Never admit culpability after a car accident. You will want to call your insurance company as well as a lawyer after an accident.
Regardless of whether or not you were at fault, an attorney can provide you with legal protection and can help you get the compensation you deserve. Attorneys will also be able to help you receive compensation that can be used to help pay your medical expenses.
