If you have been in an Encino car accident, don’t talk to anyone else’s attorney or sign anything from an insurance company without making sure you are protected.
COLLISION WITH MINOR PROPERTY DAMAGE
LANE CHANGE ACCIDENT ON FREEWAY
Few things are more frightening than a car crash. One moment you’re driving, watching the road, then there’s a sound like the world shattering and the view outside your windows is thrown into an uproar of metal and glass. Your heart pounds, your palms sweat, and everything feels wrong.
Even a minor automobile collision can be deeply upsetting – and if you or a loved one is injured, the initial impact is nothing compared to the pain and suffering that follows. We understand the trauma that a serious car collision can cause. That is why we dedicate ourselves to fighting relentlessly for people who are the victims of someone else’s recklessness in an Encino car accident.
The moments following a car accident can be hectic, and it can take all of your effort to remain calm in the situation. First of all, contact emergency services immediately and remain at the scene. Leaving the scene of an accident, even if you are trying to chase after someone else, is a crime.
While you await emergency services, check on other people who were involved in the collision to see if anyone is injured. Provide any help you can, but do not move anyone who may have suffered a neck or back injury. If you absolutely must move someone, due to a fire or a potential explosion, do so as carefully as possible and try to immobilize their spine.
Once the police arrive, you should provide an accurate account of what happened, but do not take responsibility for the crash. Even if you think you may have been partly at fault, don’t say it. You do not know everything that happened, and you might take the blame for something you did not do.
You should call your insurance company to report the accident, but do not say it was your fault and do not give a recorded statement.
Get a lawyer to represent your interests when dealing with any insurance company, including your own. You can easily sign away your rights if you are not careful when dealing with insurance companies or another driver’s attorney.
