Our consultation is FREE and there is no obligation for you to hire our firm; however, waiting to contact us could cost you time, money, and stress. Instead of delaying, call our experienced personal injury attorneys who can help you decide on the best course of action.
What to Do After a Car Accident
Below, we have provided some advice for you to follow in case you are involved in a car accident that will help your case, and put you a step ahead of the insurance companies. You can also check out our guide here.
1. Take Photographs Right After Your Accident
Take pictures of your injuries, and the damage to all cars involved in the accident right away. This helps your personal injury lawyers document your injuries with the insurance carriers later on. The photographs should be as good as you can make them. It is always helpful to have a picture with good lighting that is in focus.
2. Get a Police Report
Call the police right away. Sometimes, the police will come out to the scene of the accident and claim you are not injured and you do not need a police report. You should advocate for yourself. Insist that they recognize your injury and write a police report even if they are hesitant to do this.
Be friendly but firm. A police report usually helps clear up liability with the insurance company right away, which means your car gets fixed faster and your injuries are paid more certainly.
3. The Insurance Adjuster Is NOT Your Friend
You should never give a recorded statement to any insurance company, or even answer their calls before consulting with an experienced personal injury lawyer. Often, insurance adjusters will ask questions that are personal, irrelevant to your accident, or are designed to reduce the value of your claim. You are under no obligation to answer questions the defendant’s insurer asks you.
Call RMD Law LLP and let us handle the adjusters for you. When you have been injured, your focus should be on your treatment, not on worrying about insurance.
4. Go to the Doctor Right Away
You should seek treatment for your injuries as soon as you possibly can. While your doctor knows you are hurt, insurance companies use gaps in your treatment to justify the argument that you are not injured. Don’t give let them delay or deny you the payment you are entitled to.
Instead, treat regularly and make sure you let your doctors know that the pain was caused by your car accident. The more vocal you are about your pain, the more likely your physicians are to successfully diagnose your medical problems and help you to heal.
Common Causes of Car Accidents in California
Car accidents happen every day in Southern California. Here are the most common causes of accidents:
- Distracted drivers. Drivers that are texting, eating, applying makeup and reading are common causes of accidents.
- Drinking while driving. Even though there are strict laws that try to prohibit drunk driving, many drivers still get behind the wheel after a few drinks which delay their reaction times and ability to think clearly.
- Speeding. Many accidents are caused by unsafe drivers who are going over the legal speed limit.
- Bad road conditions. Whether it’s roads that are not maintained or the weather, the roads can be affected by bad road conditions.
