Get The Compensation You Deserve With The Car Accident Lawyers At The Brown Firmby DAVIS BROWN PRC Agency
Auto accidents happen all the time and, in most cases, we have no clue what to do when in that situation. Luckily The Brown Firm is offering step-by-step guidance on what you should do in such an event along with legal representation!
The Brown Firm, an Atlanta based Law Firm, has released a new guide on its site. The guide comes in the form of a blog that explains how you can protect your legal rights following an auto accident.
The newly released guide details the different steps that you should take in order to avoid being on the disadvantaged end of the law. Among the ways listed are contacting the police, speaking with witnesses, and seeking medical attention.
In the first step, The Brown Firm advises that you should move the vehicle, that has been involved in the accident, to the side of the road. This step comes alongside checking on the wellbeing of other passengers who may have been in the vehicle with you at the time of the accident. The reason for moving the vehicle to the side of the road is to avoid further collisions with oncoming traffic.
Step two instructs you to contact the police who will arrive on the scene and take report statements. On this note, the firm advises that you should present the facts of the accident as you recall them. It is cautioned, however, that in giving a statement you should avoid saying anything that might indicate responsibility for the accident on your part.
The third step in the guide details speaking with individuals who would’ve witnessed the accident. The reason for this, the firm pointed out, is that witness testimonies can be very beneficial as evidence. This step also comes hand in hand with taking pictures of the scene of the accident.
In the fourth and final portion of the guide, you are advised to seek legal advice from a car accident attorney. This is just in case you decide to file a claim for compensation for any damages to your vehicle or injuries to your person. The firm states also that contacting an attorney ensures the protection of your rights and that the negligent parties are held accountable.
The Brown Firm understands that in most instances, serious car accident injuries are caused by negligent and distracted driving. For this reason, the firm specializes in representing auto accident victims.
