Are attorneys that handle motor vehicle accidents the same?

The answer is no. Take your time when it comes to signing with a law firm. Speak with an attorney who's willing to take the time to clearly explain the details of your case. Make sure your attorney is willing to discuss the legal process you might need to go through when filing a claim.

Make sure your attorney is willing to go to trial no matter how low the recovery might be. Some law firms may not be willing to take your case to trial if the possible recovery is not high enough.

Don't ever sign a contract with a law firm without first talking to an attorney licensed with that firm and make sure to ask which attorney will actually be handling your case. If they can't give you this information, contact a firm that will.

It's not always easy to tell why an accident happened or which driver caused it because they happen so quickly. What can help is knowing the first steps to take after an accident has occurred, and the very first step should be checking to make sure that everyone in the vehicle is all right. After that has been done, it is a good idea to do the following:

  • If you leave the scene of the accident, you may be subject to being charged criminally, so do not leave. However, you must move the affected vehicles out of the way of traffic if you can.
  • If someone is complaining of neck or back pain, be sure not to move that person. Also, determine if anyone needs medical attention.
  • If someone is injured, call the police. Contact the police if there is significant damage to property. When the police officers arrive on the scene, make sure that a police report is written.
  • Gather the contact information of the other driver, all of the passengers and any witnesses who are present. This means that you will need their names, addresses, phone numbers, insurance information, driver license numbers and license plate numbers.
  • Take pictures of all of the damages so that there is something to compare to photos that were taken before the accident.
  • Call your insurance agent and be completely truthful with this person. Your claim can be denied if it is determined that you lied about anything.
  • If you have been significantly injured, keep a record of all of your medical treatments so that there will be an accurate account of your expenses.
