Involved in a car accident? What next?

Car accidents happen to unsuspecting motorists without warning or notice and any Arizona driver can be involved in a car accident at any time. Whether it is a head-on collision, rear-end collision or a T-bone accident, the nature of one's injuries and their severity may depend on the type of impact that occurred during the accident. Injuries can range from head, neck, spine and back injuries to broken bones and even burn injuries. Clearly, a driver can sustain serious injuries, which can result in a permanent disability. In some cases, a driver even may tragically lose his or her life.

Generally, in addition to worrying about recovering from one's injuries following an accident, a car accident victim also may worry about the cost of the medical expenses stemming from the accident, potential future medical costs, lost wages and paying other bills. Furthermore, at the time of the accident, the person simply may not know what to do first.

First and foremost, it is important to seek medical attention. However, to avoid the other driver's insurance company from holding you responsible for the accident, it is essential, if not imperative, to document not only the accident and damage to the vehicle, but also one's injuries, if possible. It is critical to contact one's insurance company and the police immediately following the accident.

Staff at Keith A. Hammond, P.C., understand how trying a car accident can be and, while one is concentrating on healing, the firm can help a car accident victim deal with other aspects of his or her case, such as filing a personal injury lawsuit against a potential negligent driver or helping the family with filing a wrongful death lawsuit in the event that the accident victim dies from his or her injuries. Additionally, they will work hard to develop and prepare a strong case and identify as many sources of compensation as possible for accident victims and their families.
