Tips for Avoiding Accidents

Chances are, if you’re reading this, you’ve already been in a car accident and you’re seeking legal help. If not, or if you’re trying to figure out how to prevent or reduce injury in the future, here are a few tips:

  • Drive defensively. With over three million motor vehicle injuries per year in the U.S., the danger of being involved in a car accident is very real. Anticipate how other drivers will react. If you see someone driving erratically or talking on a cell phone while driving, give them a wide berth.
  • Wear your seatbelt properly. Many traffic fatalities could have been prevented if individuals had been wearing seatbelts during a crash.
  • Don’t drive without insurance. Always purchase adequate accident coverage, including underinsured motorist coverage.
  • If you are tired or otherwise incapacitated, don’t drive. It’s not worth the risk.

In Case an Accident Occurs

Get out of harm’s way as much as possible and contact police.

Seek medical attention immediately. If possible, obtain documentation of your treatment and prognosis as soon as you can. Seek follow-up attention to reduce the risk of subtle injuries that go unnoticed.

Try to take a picture of the accident scene with your cell phone camera or other camera. This could come in handy later on for proving your case.

Talk to your insurer as required, but don’t discuss potential accident causes. Consult with your lawyer first. Do not talk to any other insurance companies, and do not settle out of court without legal advice.

In order to receive financial compensation as part of a car accident injury claim, your case will have to meet certain requirements. The accident must have been directly caused by the negligence of the other party and injury must have been a direct result. If you’re in doubt about the cause or you think you may have been partially to blame, you may still have a case.
