Recently our senior partner, Jim Higgins, was interviewed about what to do from a legal standpoint if you are in a car accident. The interview covers information that we have found to be very important when pursuing auto accident cases for our clients. You can watch the entire interview here:
If you are in an accident, please remember these basic tips:
– First make sure everyone is okay and get any medical attention needed.
– Take pictures of the accident scene with your cell phone or camera. Be sure to include photographs of the cars in the accident.
-Get the name, phone number and emails of any witness. We find emails are important as people keep those even when they may change their phone numbers.
-Do not give a recorded statement to the insurance company.
If you have been in a serious car accident, please feel free to contact our office. We have attorneys that focus of significant injury cases.
