If You've Been Injured in a San Francisco Car Accident...You're Not Alone
According to California’s Office of Traffic Data (OTD), San Francisco ranks at the top of the list for automobile accident injuries in cities with greater than a 250,000 population...
...and you've just been added to the statistics.
You’ve been injured in an auto accident and you are hurt, confused, frustrated and have no real idea of what to do next.
Don't you deserve a San Francisco personal injury lawyer on your side that knows what they are doing?
One that has your best interest at heart?
And one who can do the heavy lifting and who can get you “back in the game” as quickly as possible?
Knowledge is Power
Let's face it, despite your best efforts to drive safely, car accidents happen.
And when a crash does occur, it is important to know what to do to protect your rights.
First and foremost, seek medical care for anyone who is injured and call the California Highway Patrol or local police.
Next, obtain as much information as you can from the other driver including driver license information, car description, license plate number and automobile insurance information.
Also make sure to speak with any witnesses to the accident to obtain their contact information.
Although the police usually do this if they make a report, sometimes they only speak with select witnesses. So make sure you speak to everyone on the scene if you are able to.
And if possible, take pictures of the scene of the accident and the damage to the vehicles (cell phones are good for this purpose).
As soon as everyone who needs urgent medical care has been taken care of and you have notified the police, it is important to contact your local San Francisco personal injury lawyer and insurance agent to notify them of the accident.
They will advise you on the next steps to take given your specific accident circumstances.
Remember that evidence gets harder and harder to gather as time passes after the accident.
So the sooner that you contact an experienced and caring San Francisco personal injury attorney, the sooner the attorney can begin to talk to witnesses and gather the physical evidence that will be necessary for your case.
Protect Your Personal Injury Claim
Sometimes, saying less is more.
The most important thing to remember is not to talk with any investigator or insurance personnel for the other driver’s insurance carrier.
Also, never release private information (like your social security number) to the insurance carrier, as they will only use this against you.
Remember, the best thing you can do is speak to a qualified San Francisco personal injury attorney who specializes in car accidents.
