In the case that you become injured because of car accident, motorcycle accident, bicycle accident, or pedestrian accident, you will need the advice and expertise of a lawyer. Perhaps, your claim may be from death of a loved one or from personal injury because of those accidents. You may be injured in or outside of a restaurant, a gas station, or other public place.
If you are involved in this type of accidents, be calm and follow the general instructions below.
First check to see if there is anyone injured and, if needed, call 911 immediately and ask for help.
Second, do not make any statement of possible wrongdoing. It is best to avoid making statements because they may be taken as admission of guilt later on.
Third, if you are involved a car accident, take pictures or video of the scene, including people, witnesses, and vehicles, surrounding traffic and buildings, and damaged vehicles.
Fourth, if there are witnesses, politely ask for their contact information, including their names and phone numbers.
Fifth, unless it is unsafe to do so, do not move your vehicles or vehicles of others. It is best to preserve the accident scene untouched.
Sixth, while the accident is still fresh in your mind, write down details of the accident, stating what happened, the date, time, and location, contact information of passengers, occupants and witnesses, vehicles information involved in the accident, speed of vehicles, and the weather.
