ATTORNEYS THAT SPECIALIZE IN CAR ACCIDENT CASES
A CAR ACCIDENT CAN OCCUR ANYWHERE AND WHEN THEY DO THE DAMAGES CAN BE SEVERE.
For many of us, driving or riding in a car is an everyday occurrence. Every time you get into your car, you put yourself at risk of being involved in a car accident. Of course, you can take steps to reduce this risk like obeying the posted traffic laws, but you can never truly avoid the risk.
If you are injured in a car accident, you can find yourself facing significant financial damages like high medical bills, lost wages, and other miscellaneous expenses that can quickly add up and place a financial hardship on you and your family.

WHAT CAUSES CAR ACCIDENTS
In many cases, negligence causes car accidents. Negligence can occur on the part of a driver, such as reckless driving, drunk driving, or distracted driving. The government or private entity charged with maintaining the roadway, parking lot, or garage where an accident occurs may also be found negligent if the accident was due to a poor design or lack of proper maintenance. Vehicle manufacturers and retailers can also be deemed negligent in cases where accidents occur because of vehicle malfunctions.
When a party is deemed to be negligent, that party is liable for the victim’s damages that occur as a result of the accident.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I AM INVOLVED IN A CAR ACCIDENT
Remain calm. If anybody involved in the accident needs emergency medical attention, call 911 to have an ambulance sent to the scene.
Next, call the local police department to have an officer report to the scene. Be sure to file an official police report with him or her and do not leave without a copy. This, along with the photographs you take of the accident, your medical record, and eyewitness reports of the accident, will be an important piece of evidence to support your claim.
Before leaving the scene, exchange insurance information with the other driver involved in the accident. You will need to file your claim with his or her insurance provider.
After leaving the scene, your next step should be to seek medical attention as soon as possible for your injury. Receiving a prompt diagnosis and medical care can mean the difference between an easy recovery and a prolonged one. Once you have received the medical treatment you need, consider working with a lawyer to file a personal injury claim to seek compensation for your damages.
