Car Accidents

Being involved in an auto accident is a frightening experience that can drastically change your life within seconds. A car accident can cause debilitating physical injuries, emotional trauma, and costly property damage. Additionally, a serious car accident injury that prevents you from returning to your job (or that limits the number of hours you can work) can be financially devastating. Even an accident that occurs at a low speed, or that doesn’t result in much damage to your car, can cause physical injuries. If you’ve been involved in a car accident, it’s important to take steps to protect your legal rights before it’s too late. If you’ve recently been hurt in a motor vehicle accident, the right law firm can:

  • Investigate your accident to compile evidence
  • Negotiate on your behalf with the other driver’s insurance company or help you file for uninsured motorist benefits under your own insurance policy
  • File and pursue a lawsuit on your behalf if negotiations don’t lead to a successful settlement

If you have been involved in an automobile accident, you may have a case for compensation. You could be compensated for your medical bills, lost wages, and vehicle repairs. You may also be eligible for payout for emotional distress, pain and suffering, inability to function as a whole person, or total disability. A practice like the Spencer Law Office can help you find peace of mind after your accident so that you can move forward with your life; call today to set up a consultation.

What You Need to Know About Being in a Car Accident

In the event of an accident, call 911 with the location of the accident and any injuries sustained. If you suspect alcohol or drugs were involved, let law enforcement know right away. Do not discuss the details of the accident with the other driver. If possible, you will want to write down some important information at the scene, which includes the following:

  • The other driver's name, address, phone number, and vehicle insurance provider
  • The other driver's license plate number and vehicle make/model
  • Names of the law enforcement officers who responded to the scene

If you have a camera with you, whether it is digital, standard, or on your cell phone, take some photographs of the scene, including vehicle damage, any visible skid marks, and landmarks for the scene. If you have time to describe the conditions of the accident, that can be helpful, too. This information is important when establishing a case. Make sure your description includes: 

  • The location and time of the accident
  • Weather conditions
  • Factors leading up to the accident
  • Any injuries sustained from the collision
  • Witness contact information

If you are experiencing severe pain, go to the emergency room immediately. Even if you feel okay shortly after the accident, it is a good idea to schedule an appointment with your primary care physician soon after to ensure no injuries were sustained.
