Getting A Little Help

A few months ago when I was involved in a bad car accident, I didn't know what to do next. In an attempt to make things right, I tried to be open and honest with lawyers and insurance agents when they called, only to be reprimanded by complete strangers. After taking a few phone calls on my own, I realized that I needed to have an advocate at my side to make things right. I contacted an attorney, who came right out to help me the next day. He listened to the details of my case, started screening my calls, and instantly reduced my stress level.

Helping Your Car Accident Injury Lawyer Prove Fault Of Another Driver

If you are involved in a vehicular accident that was caused by another motorist, you want to take steps to prove this in court so you receive compensation for the repair work necessary and any injuries people suffer from. This requires that you hire a car accident injury attorney to work on your behalf to prove the incident was the fault of another party. Here are steps to take after an injury happens to help with your case.

Gather Information From Bystanders In The Area 

After an accident happens, you are likely to be in shock in addition to pain from the injury you sustained. During this time it is hard to gather information from others who may be in the area. If you did not obtain phone numbers from any witnesses to your accident, you need to be diligent in trying to find these people for your attorney to interview. Contact local businesses at the scene of the accident or highway maintenance services to determine whether cameras were anywhere near the scene. If you have photographs, see if the license plates of other vehicles are visible.

Use Physical Evidence As Much As Possible

If you had taken photographs of the area where the accident occurred right after your injury happened, they can be invaluable in a court of law. Make sure all photographs are time stamped if possible. Keep any parts that fall off your vehicle to provide to your attorney as proof of the extent of the accident. If you require medication for your injuries, provide your lawyer with insert information or the packaging it comes in to prove you are using it as your doctor recommends.

Find Out About Prior Accidents In The Area

If the spot where the accident occurred is one that is in need of maintenance or seems to be a repeat hazard area, your lawsuit may not be limited to the other motorist. The town where the incident occurred may be to blame. This requires that you research accidents in the area that had occurred in the past. Check social media for area groups and search for conversations about the roadway in detail. You may discover the location has blind spots, improperly maintained roads, faulty signage, traffic lights, or illumination systems. Provide this information to your attorney and let them know you are interested in finding out if the accident could have been avoided by both involved parties.
