Even though an accident is an unexpected event that can cause a victim to feel confused and disoriented, it’s important to protect your rights in this situation. This includes noting the other driver’s license plate and obtaining the information on their driver’s license, registration and insurance. In Pennsylvania, not all auto accidents are reportable, but if there is serious bodily injury or one or more of the vehicles is disabled, the police should be immediately called to complete an investigation and report as to what occurred. It is also a good idea to take photos. Do not converse with the other drivers about what happened or who is at fault. Any statement you make can be detrimental to your case.
What to do when you’re injured in an auto accident:
As soon after the accident as possible, call attorney Leonard J. Berger, Jr. to safeguard your rights and ensure you are properly compensated for your injuries. Leonard J. Berger, Jr. will do whatever it takes to ensure that you receive the maximum compensation available for your injuries including examining the evidence, gathering medical records and dealing with all pertinent insurance companies on your behalf. He will interview witnesses and examine the police report to determine what sort of claims can be made against the parties involved. Don’t discuss your accident with relatives or friends or on social media, and remember to let your attorney do the talking for you when the insurance companies call.
