Traffic Accident Attorney
The most important thing that you can do at a traffic accident is take pictures and notes. This step can be crucial to help you further down the road in handling your claim. Having notes in detail of what happened, and what you went through, is a far more accurate way of getting the facts down correct.
These notes and pictures can help you explain any injuries you may have suffered as a result of this traffic accident. You may suffer pain, loss of sleep, anxiety, discomfort and many other problems. These all need to be well documented to support your claim for damages.M
It is also important to get the name of the officer who is working the accident. You will also need to know where to pick up a copy of the accident report and copies of any statements that were taken by the officer when investigating the accident. One important thing that should never be forgotten is whether or not the other party has insurance at the time of the accident. If the other party does have insurance, you should obtain that information at the time of the accident. This will help speed up your claim when you do consult with one of our attorneys at Davis, Kessler & Davis.
Insurance adjusters will often call and try to take a recorded statement from you on your account of how the accident occurred and the injuries you suffered. It is recommended that you only give your personal identification to the insurance adjuster and refrain from discussing the details of the accident. Lastly, if presented with a release or any other papers you should never sign anything without conferring with the attorneys at Davis, Kessler & Davis.
