Auto Accidents

Car and Truck Accident Lawyers

If you have been injured in a car or trucking accident, the first phone call should be to the police. An accurate report of what happened during the accident is the most important part of a successful recovery. You should also immediately seek medical attention for any injuries you have sustained. Oftentimes in an emergency room environment, pain that is not immediately life-threatening is overlooked. However, that does not mean that you may still be seriously injured that will require medical correction in the future. Try to accurately describe everything you are feeling to the physicians and, if you are still not feeling quite right after you leave, follow up with your general practitioner to assess any conditions that emergency room personnel may have missed. Do not give any statements to insurance adjusters. Hire an attorney to take care of this part of your case. In almost every case, you will not know all of the information about what happened, especially early-on. Making additional statements without getting a chance to see what the police actually wrote in the report, and what the other driver(s) and/or witnesses said to the officers at the scene is almost always a bad idea.
