Q: I’ve just been in an accident, what should I do?
A: Immediately check for injuries for all passengers and seek emergency medical care. Often after an accident, a victim will be in shock and not realize the extent of the injuries at the scene. Medical and emergency technicians can evaluate, and very importantly, document all injuries. Next, call the police and file a report after any accident.
Q: What information do I need to gather at the scene of the accident?
A: You can never have too much information. Collect the names and insurance information of parties involved, any eye witness contact information, and be sure to document via notes, photos, and video any of the details, time, and scene of the accident.
Q: What is the process for getting compensation for my injuries?
A: If you’ve been injured in an accident, call Axelrod & Associates. Our legal team will evaluate your case and work to get the compensation you deserve. We will work with the insurance companies involved. In many cases, compensation can be negotiated out of court. Other times, your case will go to court.
Q: What if I don’t have visible physical injuries, but only damages to my vehicle?
A: Even if you did not sustain any bodily injury, you still may be able to have your vehicle repaired or compensation for a total vehicle loss.
Q: Should I try to negotiate with the other party on my own?
A: Never. It’s always best to seek help from law enforcement and obtain legal representation after being injured in an auto or vehicle accident. The auto accident lawyers at Axelrod & Associates will fight to protect your legal rights to make sure you receive fair compensations for your auto accident.
