Here are some questions that we are frequently asked about car accidents:

What should I do if I'm in a car accident?

If you were in a car accident, follow these suggested steps:

  1. Call 911 to report the accident and request an ambulance if anyone has been seriously injured. When police arrive, ask how you can obtain a copy of the police report.
  2. Locate and interview eyewitnesses. Be sure to also get their contact information.
  3. Take detailed pictures of the crash scene. Show all the damage and any visible injuries.
  4. Get the name, address, phone number, license info, and insurance info of everyone who was involved in the crash.
  5. Take notes about the exact time and location of accident, weather conditions, etc.
  6. Contact your insurance company, but do not admit fault or go into too much detail about what happened.
  7. Contact an experienced car accident lawyer to go over your rights and discuss your legal options.

Should I call the police if I am in a car accident?

Yes. You should notify police so they can respond to the crash scene and create an official accident report. Accident reports contain valuable information about your crash that can be critical to your personal injury claim. Get a copy of the report and check to make sure all the facts are there. If anything is missing or incorrect, a car accident lawyer can help you set the record straight.

Should I go to the doctor after a minor car accident?

Even if your car accident seems minor, you should get checked out by a medical professional within 24 hours of your crash. You may have a serious injury and not realize it. A crash is a stressful event that can trigger the release of adrenaline within seconds, causing the body to go into fight-or-flight mode. We don’t usually feel pain when adrenaline is released. Therefore, you may not be aware of a minor bone fracture, spinal cord injury, head or brain injury, whiplash, concussion or other condition until after the adrenaline wears off. Sometimes, it can take days for injury symptoms to appear.

Should I contact my insurance company after a car accident?

Yes. Call your insurance company and tell them you were involved in a car accident caused by another driver. Keep your comments to a minimum. Don’t answer a lot of questions. If your insurance company wants more information, have them contact your attorney.

Insurance companies often try to protect their profits by paying personal injury victims as little as possible. Anything you say could be used to challenge your claim, so be careful what you tell them about your accident. Try to give just basic facts.

Before you accept a settlement offer from the insurance company, you should consider speaking with an experienced car accident lawyer first. Most insurance companies offer way less than what you’re entitled to in hopes of getting you to accept minimal compensation in the form of quick cash. An experienced car accident attorney can figure out what your claim is worth and can help you get the compensation you’re entitled to.

Should I get a car accident lawyer?

Yes. An experienced car accident lawyer can strengthen your personal injury claim. Our Phoenix car accident attorneys know how to investigate your accident, gather evidence, build a strong case, and get you the compensation you deserve. Whether it’s through a settlement or court award, our dedicated legal team can come up with a custom strategy tailor-made to meet your needs and get you real results.

Hiring a Phoenix car accident lawyer makes a lot of sense

Dealing with insurance companies can be especially difficult. Often, they act like they have your best interests at heart. But ultimately, they're focused on paying auto accident victims as little as possible to protect their bottom line.

Car accident injuries can cover a wide range, from whiplash & neck injuries to broken bones/fractures. Worst of all, some injuries are not immediately apparent after an accident. Sometimes, weeks or months later a serious, life-altering injury can appear after your accident.

A closer look at types of car accidents

Car accident causes can vary widely from one accident to another. Common types of car accidents include rear-end accidents, head-on collisions and hit & run accidents. If you've been injured in any of these kinds of accidents caused by another driver, contact our law firm immediately. If you choose to hire us, we will work tirelessly to obtain the compensation you rightfully deserve.
