Who Should I Contact if I’m Involved in a Car Accident With Injuries?

Being involved in a car accident is incredibly stressful. Even the most minor traffic collision can result in significant financial challenges for the victim. 

A car accident with injuries is even more overwhelming. In the moments after a severe crash, it is normal to feel confused and unsure about what to do. 

Below, we will discuss who you should contact and what you should do after a car accident with injuries. Taking the right steps is critical for your health and safety. 

It is also crucial to protect your legal rights and options after a crash. If another person’s negligence led to your injuries, you might be able to pursue financial compensation for the associated losses. 

Following your car accident, it is vital to seek the services of an accomplished legal professional. You should not be forced to manage the losses from your traffic accident alone. 

The skilled personal injury attorneys at Morgan & Morgan have decades of experience representing the victims of car accidents with injuries. When you hire our firm, you can rest assured that your case is in capable hands.

Steps to Take After a Car Accident With Injuries

It can be difficult to think clearly after an automobile collision. This is especially true if you have sustained an injury. 

Your safety should be your top priority. Because a car accident is so stressful, many victims make mistakes that damage their ability to recover compensation at a later date. 

Following a car accident with injuries, take the following actions as quickly as possible:

Contact Medical Responders

Ensuring the safety of those involved in the crash is the first thing you should do after a collision. If you are severely injured, do not attempt to move. 

If you are able, call 911 and request an ambulance at the collision scene. The 911 dispatcher may also send law enforcement officers to the scene.

Even in the case of minor crashes, it is important to contact the police. A police accident report serves as invaluable evidence in any resulting legal claim. 

It is critical to remain at the crash scene until the authorities and medical responders arrive. Taking these steps will ensure that you have the highest chance of recovering the financial compensation that is rightfully yours.

Collect Relevant Information

Before leaving the scene of a car accident with injuries, collect relevant information about the crash. It can become challenging to gather relevant evidence about the incident as time passes. 

Information about the circumstances of the traffic collision will be important in the resulting personal injury claim. Some examples of relevant evidence include: 

  • Photographs of injuries
  • Photographs of resulting property and vehicular damage
  • Names and contact information of other drivers
  • The year, make, and model of all vehicles involved
  • License plate numbers
  • Photographs of the scene of the crash
  • The accident report number
  • Names of the reporting law enforcement officers
  • Notes detailing your experience of the incident 

This type of evidence will be incredibly useful when filing a personal injury claim for damages. The skilled legal representatives at Morgan & Morgan will use this information to build a powerful case for you.

Contact Your Insurance Company

It is important to contact your auto insurance provider to report the car accident. Provide the insurance adjuster with the facts about your collision. 

You should never discuss the question of fault or liability with the adjuster. Even your insurance provider is not working in your best financial interest. 

Adjusters are often trained to downplay and devalue personal injury claims. You should speak with a competent legal specialist before negotiating with an insurance company representative. 

The personal injury attorneys at Morgan & Morgan have plenty of experience negotiating on behalf of car accident victims. We will ensure that the relevant insurance representative does not deny you the money that you rightfully deserve. 

Reporting the accident to your insurance company will protect your ability to pursue a legal claim for the damages from your collision. Failing to do so may result in a rejection of your personal injury claim.

Contact an Attorney

After securing the required medical assistance, call a trustworthy personal injury firm. Securing legal representation is crucial to recovering the money you need to move forward. 

Even if you believe that your injuries are minor, you should not hesitate to consult with a lawyer. Many car accident injuries do not present signs or symptoms until days or weeks after the incident.  

Because of this, make sure to seek a medical assessment and a legal consultation quickly. Insurance adjusters will always attempt to pay as little as possible. 

A knowledgeable car accident attorney at Morgan & Morgan will help you recover maximum compensation in your case. Still, you may be uncertain about how to find the right injury lawyer for you.

Finding the Right Lawyer After a Car Accident With Injuries

Most people do not have experience securing the services of a tort lawyer. Tort lawyers help people receive compensation when they’ve been victimized. Even if you are certain that you have a strong legal claim, you might be unsure how to proceed. 

To find the right car accident attorney to represent you, take the following important steps:

Online Research

Before consulting with an attorney or firm, it is vital to conduct thorough research online. Do not simply contact the first firm that appears in an online search engine. 

Instead, you should take the time to read prior clients’ testimonials and reviews. This will help you anticipate what it will be like to work with a particular firm. 

You should also read reviews from many different websites. Clients' testimonies on a firm’s website are typically curated to present the best possible impression. Check around, and see if the reviews on other sites give similar feedback about the firm.

Even the best lawyers may have a few negative reviews. But before you schedule a consultation, make sure that the attorney’s clients report mostly positive experiences.

Find a Legal Specialist

Some car accident victims believe that all lawyers have the same skill set and specialized knowledge. This view is mistaken. 

There are many different branches of legal practice in the United States. Therefore, it is critical to contact a lawyer with plenty of experience in car accident injury cases. 

The attorneys at Morgan & Morgan have successfully represented injury victims for decades. We know what it takes to recover the financial compensation that our clients are owed. 

Schedule a Free Consultation

Reputable lawyers will provide you with a no-cost initial case evaluation to discuss your car accident claim. You should face no pressure to hire the firm or attorney during this initial meeting.

Think of the case evaluation as a job interview in which you are doing the hiring. You should prepare questions for the lawyer to determine whether they would be the best person to represent you.  

These questions should deal with the specifics of your claim or the general legal process. Some of the most typical examples of questions that new clients ask include: 

  • How many years have you practiced injury law?
  • Have you handled car accident cases before?
  • What is your current success rate?
  • Do you believe I have a valid legal claim?
  • Which parties are liable for the damages in my case?
  • What types of compensation can I pursue?
  • How long do you think this claim will take?
  • What is your negotiation strategy?
  • What are the next steps after this consultation?

These questions are only general examples. Before you attend the consultation, it is a good idea to write down any questions you may have. 

This will help ensure that you do not forget anything during the case evaluation. You should also bring any information regarding your car accident. 

During the meeting, the lawyer will ask questions to better understand the nature of your claim. If the attorney does anything to make you question their abilities, keep looking for better representation.

FAQ

Morgan & Morgan

  • What Types of Financial Compensation Are Available in Car Accident Claims?

    Most car accident victims are not familiar with the categories of legal compensation. The term for payments to accident victims from the responsible party is “damages.” 

    In most claims, traffic collision victims can pursue two categories of compensation. These are known as “economic” and “non-economic” damages. 

    Economic damages are payments intended to compensate the injured person for the monetary losses that they experienced. Most victims underestimate the financial challenges that result from a traffic collision.  

    A knowledgeable attorney will examine the facts of your case and help you determine all of the financial costs that resulted from your crash. Some of the most common examples include: 

    • Past and current medical bills
    • Expected future medical expenses
    • The cost of repairing and replacing your vehicle
    • Other associated property damage
    • Lost wages and income from missed work
    • Long-term decrease in earning potential
    • And more 

    Not every type of loss from a car accident is financial. Some of the most difficult outcomes are intangible.  

    Payments for these losses are known as “non-economic” damages. Some typical examples of these compensatory damages are: 

    • Physical pain and suffering
    • Emotional distress
    • Panic, depression, and anxiety
    • Disability and disfigurement
    • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
    • And more 

    It can be very difficult to determine non-economic damages in an accident case. That is why it’s so crucial to speak with an experienced legal professional following your car accident with injuries. 

    The team at Morgan & Morgan will fight for all of the economic and non-economic damages you are rightfully owed.

Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
