These simple tips will help your auto accident lawyer build a strong case against the other party.
If you have been injured in a car accident due to the negligence of another person, you will need an experienced auto accident lawyer on your side to protect your legal rights. The other driver and his insurance company will not likely have your best interests in mind after a car accident. That is why it is so important that you have someone on your side who knows the law and can protect your rights. A skilled personal injury attorney, like the lawyers at the Law Offices of Larry H. Parker, will help make sure that you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
How You Can Increase the Chances of A Successful Outcome
You can take several steps to support your claim in a personal injury lawsuit after a car accident. First, collect any evidence of the accident. This may include paperwork such as a police accident report, insurance and contact information for the other driver, hospital and ambulance records, and photos of the accident scene. Any documentation that supports your version of how the accident occurred will be helpful to your attorneys.
Second, write down as much as you can remember about the accident. This could be a description of what happened and the times that events occurred (such as when the police and/or ambulance arrived). It’s best to make notes of this information as soon as possible after the accident, while your memory is fresh; the longer you wait to chronicle the accident, the more likely it is that you may forget crucial details, such as whether the other driver made a statement to you about the accident. Third, make a list of potential witnesses along with their contact information. This may involve listing each person riding in the car with you or the other driver, anyone who saw what happened, and the police, firefighters or medical personnel who responded to the scene. These people may help your attorney put together your claim for damages. Fourth — and most importantly — do not speak to the other driver or their insurance representative about the accident. If they want to speak to you, you can simply tell them that you are considering filing a lawsuit and that they can talk to your attorney. Allowing your lawyer to handle conversations with insurance adjusters and other parties will help to ensure that you obtain the best possible outcome for your case. Of course, if you have been seriously injured in a car accident, you may not be able to take these steps; these are only suggestions for anyone who is capable of gathering this information.
