Car accidents become much more likely in bad weather, when drivers text, or when drivers consume alcohol to the point of intoxication. Every driver must drive safely in the snow and rain to avoid a car accident. It is against the law to text and drive or to drive while intoxicated.

  • OVER 2 million drivers and passengers sustain permanent injuries each year in major car crashes.
  • NEARLY 40,000 people lose their lives each year due to major collisions.

Dealing With The Insurance Company After You File Your Injury Claim Can Be Extremely Frustrating.
What to Do If You Are in a Car Crash!
If you are involved in an automobile accident and are hurt or seriously injured it is VERY important that you do the following:

  • Stay calm, and offer aid to any injured people but do not move anyone.
  • Call 911.
  • Get the name, addresses & phone # of all drivers, all passengers, and all witnesses.
  • Use your cell phone to take pictures of your car and the other car.
  • Take a picture of each car’s license plate and any of the cars of witnesses for identification.
  • Write down the facts of the accident and draw a diagram so you can explain the events to the police and others later. This is especially true if the accident was anything other than a rear-end collision.
  • Get medical attention immediately even if your injuries seem minor. After the adrenalin wears off, your body will begin to feel pain. If you do not seek medical attention the insurance companies with argue that you were not injured.
  • DO NOT give a recorded statement, sign any medical authorization or wage loss authorizations for any insurance carrier.
  • If your injuries are serious, your medical bills are high, and/or the insurance company is being difficult you should consult with an attorney to decide the right course of action to take regarding your personal injury claim.
