Why You Need to Hire a Lawyer for Your Auto Injury

Accidents happen. However, if you are injured in an auto accident, you might need to
seek out a personal injury lawyer. You may be due financial compensation to pay for the injury and
make up for lost wages. Auto injury lawyers assist with assuring you receive fair compensation for your pain
and suffering.

What to Do When Involved in an Accident

If you’re involved in an accident, it can be difficult to think straight. With your adrenaline
pumping and your mind racing, you may not instantly think of important tasks to
perform.
Make sure everyone is safe. If you have been seriously injured (or if someone else
involved in the accident has been injured) it is best to call 911. If nobody is seriously
injured, call the police and report the accident. Do not avoid contacting the police as it is
extremely important that a police report is prepared. Without one, taking the accident case
to court may prove difficult. After contacting the authorities, you need to contact your auto
insurance company. Notify it of the accident promptly so as not to jeopardize coverage.

Document the Scene

Documenting the scene is important for several different reasons. First, it can help with
your auto insurance claim. Second, it helps with your potential personal injury case as
well. There is no such thing as too much documentation, so make sure to snap a picture
of everything, from the damage sustained to your vehicle to skid marks and injuries you
experienced. All of this will help determine if you should pursue a personal injury
lawsuit.
In the event of an auto accident, if the other driver is at fault, you may be due financial
compensation. With the attorneys at Schiffman Law Office, you have the law on your side. Our
