Did you know that there are over 10,000 motor vehicle accidents reported each year ? In light of that fact, if you have never been involved in a motor vehicle accident consider yourself lucky. A motor vehicle accident can happen to anyone, whether you are a driver, a passenger or a pedestrian, so it is important to know what to do when you or someone you know is involved in a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident or bus accident. It can happen near your home, on your way to work or while you’re on vacation.

Regardless of the circumstances revolving around a motor vehicle accident knowing what to do can make the difference between losing all legal rights to file a claim or securing maximum compensation for your injuries.
