WHY YOU WANT A PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY
There are several reasons why you should consider hiring a Fall River personal injury lawyer as soon as you are hurt. The first is the fact that personal injury lawyers understand the inner workings of insurance companies. They know how to reach appropriate settlements, and they know how to negotiate with the insurance company representatives. The second is, of course, their knowledge of the law. Personal injury attorneys have an advantage when it comes to insurance claim discussions: they can quote the law; they know what is legal and what isn’t, and they will not be deceived by half-truths or withheld information. An insurance company may try to take advantage of the injured party’s ignorance of the law, vulnerability, or distress, but they simply cannot do so with a lawyer.
A lawyer can offer precious advice to personal injury victims, such as what steps to take next in their legal journey. We can make sure no injury, or recovery for it, is overlooked. If needed, we’ll even bring in a specialist when your case calls for one.
Injury or accident case
- Dial 911 and report the accident. Let them know if there are any injuries and always request a rescue if you are injured.
- Never move your vehicle prior to the police arriving.
- If you are able to exit your vehicle, take pictures of the accident scene from a distance so that you can see all of the vehicles involved and all of the vehicles in one picture. Then take close-up pictures of each vehicle involved. Make sure to include the damage, license plate of the vehicle, and a picture of the driver.
- If there is a witness to the accident, ask them to wait for the police to arrive so they can give a statement. If they cannot wait, ask if you can take a picture of their identification and then include a picture of them holding their identification that you can read.
- Once the police arrive, make a statement as to how the accident occurred. Ensure that the police talk to the witness and takes their statement as well. If the witness left prior to the police arrival, show the police officer a picture of the witness and their identification, making sure that, on the police report, they are noted as a witness that had to leave before his arrival.
- If you are injured, never refuse medical treatment by rescue personnel. Be transported by rescue to the nearest hospital to get medical treatment.
- You and the other driver can agree to follow each other and meet at the police department to make a report.
- If you are not going to meet at the police department to make a report, you should exchange the following information to include a copy of their license, motor vehicle registration, insurance card, a picture of their license plate, and a picture of the other driver. Remember, you should have documented photos of the scene of the accident and damages to vehicles as well.
- If you are involved in a bus accident and you are injured, make sure either you or someone else has dialed 911 to request a rescue as well as the police to document the accident.
- The bus driver should be creating a list of all the passengers on the bus at the time of the accident. Ensure that your name is written on the list, then take a picture of the list and the bus driver holding the list.
- Ensure you receive a receipt showing proof that you were on the bus. Take a picture of the receipt to preserve it.
- Take pictures of the damage to the bus, any vehicles involved in the accident, and/or any items damaged, i.e., a tree.
- If you are injured, do not refuse medical attention. Be transported by rescue to the nearest or most appropriate hospital for treatment.
