Auto Accident and Car Crash Lawsuits
After a serious collision, it is important to understand your legal rights. What you do or don’t do following a collision can affect the outcome of your case, so it is critical to immediately contact an auto accident attorney if you suspect that you may have a case.
The laws pertaining to auto accidents are intended to discourage reckless driving and compensate victims for injuries caused by the negligence of others. This purpose is accomplished by holding car designers, manufacturers, and distributors responsible for the safety of their products (product liability) and holding motorists responsible for driving safely. Laws also require that roadways be maintained properly. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident, motorcycle accident, large truck accident, and wrongful death laws may also impact a victim’s claim.
What to Do after an Auto Accident
If you or a loved one is injured in an auto accident or car crash, first seek medical treatment. Do not say anything at the scene of the accident – even if you believe you are at least partially at fault – since this may harm your potential case should you decide to seek damages. Obtain contact information from other parties involved in the accident and any witnesses, and take pictures of the accident scene. Finally, seek legal counsel as soon as possible. Do not speak to the other party’s insurance company, as the insurance companies try to minimize your injuries and will avoid or delay paying out on your claim.
