Bronx Personal Injury Attorney

You are home early from work and decide to run a few errands so you get in your car in route to your local dry cleaner. Getting into a car accident was not on your list however without warning the car on your right decides change lanes and strikes your vehicle forcefully on the rear passenger door. The damage is extensive. Your heart is racing, your head is throbbing and all you can think about is how happy you are no one was critically injured. If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, put your physical safety first. Next, you want to secure your legal right if possible by following these four simple steps…

Call the Police to the scene of the accident:
The biggest mistake most people involved in a motor vehicle accident make is neglecting to call the police and file a report. Often, the fear of being found to be at fault plays a role. Other times, the injury does not seem serious, so you decide to forego getting the police and insurance company involved.

Take Pictures:
Be sure to take pictures of the location, damage to the inside and outside of the vehicle as well as any skid marks on the road. These photos will come in handy later.

Seek Immediate Medical Attention:
Even low impact collisions can cause serious injury however the symptoms may not show up right away. Accept medical attention at the scene of the accident if you feel any discomfort or pain.

Contact a Car Accident Lawyer:
Have the evidence of your case reviewed by a seasoned attorney experienced in handling automobile accident claims. They can review the evidence of your accident and determine liability. If you were harmed due to the negligence of another Bronx driver, following these steps will be invaluable help when it comes time to file your car accident claim.
