With the busy and hectic lifestyles of the people who live and work in Los Angeles, accidents are not uncommon. Accidents will often happen in a matter of seconds but the damages that they cause can last for lifetime. That’s why you need an experienced Los Angeles auto accident attorney after a crash occurs.
Whether people experience car accidents, work-related accidents or falling accidents, the repercussions can be equally as severe. Victims may need extensive and costly medical treatment, lose the ability to work or suffer emotional trauma as a result of their accident.
During the Accident
A couple of things to remember about the crucial moments after you get into an auto accident:
- Don’t flee the scene in panic. You could face criminal charges for leaving the accident site before a police officer informs you (and it is on record) that you were given permission by them to leave.
- Get the other driver’s or drivers’ information, but never admit that the accident was your fault, even if it was. This will inevitably make your legal stance more difficult and it could completely jeopardize your possible claim.
- Call an attorney after you’ve sought medical attention and the shock of the accident wears off. Only an attorney who is experienced and talented, and knows the ins and outs of personal injury law, can fight for you. It is best to say as little as possible at the time of the accident.
