d’Oliveira & Associates has released a car accident infographic providing information on important steps people involved in an auto accident should take. Our law firm wants to give people an easy to remember visual because many people make mistakes after a motor vehicle accident that jeopardize their claim for compensation. The infographic provides helpful tips for each stage of an accident.
What is Covered by the Auto Accidents Infographic:
- Think About Safety. Safety should be the first thing you consider after an accident. The fact is that even low-speed accidents can cause serious personal injuries. Remember to assess your physical condition and the condition of any passengers in order to determine whether you need emergency medical attention. You should also call the police. The police can assess the accident and tell you what you need to do.
- Collect Information. Remember to get the other driver’s name, address, phone number, license number, registration number, and insurance information. Additionally, you should take pictures of the accident scene and record important information such as car position, weather, road condition, time, place, and traffic violations.
- Seek Medical Help. You should see a doctor as soon as possible because they can provide an accurate and thorough assessment of your injuries. After the traffic accident you may be in shock and might not realize the extent of your injuries. Additionally, some injuries may manifest themselves weeks or months after the accident.
- Protect Your Rights. You should contact our law office. We have 25 years of experience handling auto accident claims. The sooner you contact our office the sooner we can begin investigating your claim. Additionally, we offer a free consultation and there is no fee unless you receive a settlement or award.
Other interesting facts on the infographic include the fact that 71 percent of auto accidents cause property damage and 28 percent cause personal injuries. Additionally, people who hire a lawyer receive 3.5 times more money in settlements than people who did not hire a lawyer.
