There were more than 5.8 million motor vehicle accidents in the United States, leaving more than 2.3 million people injured and more than 37,000 dead. An American is injured in a motor vehicle accident every 14 seconds. About 2 million people each year suffer permanent injury due to a motor vehicle accident.

Injuries resulting from auto accidents may include:

– Knee and shoulder problems
– Whiplash
– Back and neck injuries
– Spinal cord damage
– Death

Many accidents are caused by:

– Carelessness
– Recklessness
– Negligence – distracted or impaired driving, unsafe truck operation, or defective equipment

Victims of motor vehicle accidents or their loved ones may be entitled to financial compensation for:

– Medical costs
– Lost wages
– Pain and suffering
– Wrongful death
Whether a driver, passenger, or pedestrian, no one wants to be in accident. But when one is thrust upon you it is essential that you take the right steps to protect your rights, including immediately after the accident, and later in selecting the right law firm to represent your interests.

Our attorneys know that behind each personal injury is a personal tragedy, a story to be told, responsibility to be taken, wrongs to be righted, closure needed. Our lawyers get the best possible outcome for our clients through negotiation and, when necessary, through litigation.

What to Do After an Accident

To be prepared for an auto accident, drivers should carry a cell phone, and keep a pen, notepad, and a camera in their car. After a car accident occurs, drivers should:

Address Health and Safety First – See if anyone requires medical attention and call for an ambulance if needed. If no one is injured move the vehicles involved to the side of the road and/or away from other traffic.

Exchange Information – Exchange information with everyone involved in the accident. Obtain: name, address, phone number, driver license information, insurance information and license plate numbers. Do not admit fault, even if you believe that to be the case. Photograph the situation and damage.

Call for the Police – While it is not always necessary, it generally is prudent to call for the police to file a police report.

Contact Your Insurance Company – Immediately contact your insurance company to inform them of the accident.

Seek Legal Counsel – If you believe the accident is the fault of the other driver or drivers, or if you were injured, you should seek legal counsel to protect your interests and rights.
