Choosing A San Antonio Car Accident Attorney

It is important to find an experienced accident attorney who knows the law and how it may affect your case. The right attorney will understand the impact of the crash has on your personal and professional life.

The right attorney should have experience with cases like yours in order to employ the right strategy for your case. The best personal injury attorney will dedicate themselves to their clients’ cause.

What To Do After A Car Accident

In the moments after a car crash, there are actions that you can take that will help protect your rights and get you on track to a speedy recovery:

SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION – You should always call emergency help if it is necessary. Many people underestimate the severity of their injuries due to the adrenaline rush caused by the accident. It is important to receive a complete examination and follow doctors’ orders. This will assist in your recovery and prevent others from claiming you did not listen to your doctor’s advice.

CALL THE POLICE – Immediately call law enforcement to the scene and request a report detailing the events that caused the crash. Your accident attorney will use the report in preparing your claim.

TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS AND INFORMATION – You can photograph areas of the crash site that you believe contributed to the accident and parts of the vehicles involved. Also, write down contact information including names, addresses, and insurance information for everyone involved.

DON’T ADMIT FAULT – What you say to anybody at or following the time of the crash can limit your ability to recover, or even bring a claim. Your personal injury attorney should communicate with insurance agents, parties, and witnesses.
