Working Toward The Fair Compensation You Deserve

Know What To Do In The Hours After A Serious Accident

It is our worst fear: Someone acts irrationally and causes a serious accident. What should you do? One of the ways to protect yourself is to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as it is safe to do so.

I am attorney Dedrick L. Gordon, and I will help you understand your rights after an accident. I will negotiate with the insurance company for you so that you can rest assured that you are getting the maximum compensation you deserve. All accident case assessments are free.

Take These Four Steps Immediately After A Crash

Here are recommendations for actions to take in order to preserve the chance of arriving at a fair settlement:

• Seek medical attention. Not every injury is evident at first. In fact, internal injuries and brain injuries are often overlooked. You want to know what your body has been through and what type of treatment and care you will need. You need to do this ASAP.
• Report the accident to the police. The police are not always dispatched to traffic accidents. You want to have an official record of the event so that it is not your word against the other driver’s.
• Gather any evidence and documents. Take pictures and videos of the accident crash if you are able to do so. Get the insurance and contact information of the at-fault party. Also, if anyone saw what happened, record them if they are willing and give their name, address and phone number. This may prove very useful later.
• Speak with a personal injury attorney. The insurance company that represents the at-fault driver in the accident has an obligation to pay the lowest possible settlement amount. To do this, insurance companies will achieve their objective by utilizing a number of tactics, including encouraging fast settlements, encouraging claimants to provide recorded statements and other actions that ultimately affect claimants’ abilities to achieve fair settlements.
