Most people have no idea what to do when they are involved in a Pleasanton car wreck accident. The stress of such situations, even if you have not suffered serious physical injury, can prevent you from thinking clearly. Nonetheless, it is critical for you to do and say all the right things when speaking with any Pleasanton insurance company or court representatives. The ability to be clear and accurate during such conversations not only helps protect you; it may also preserve your legal rights and keep open certain types of legal remedy other victims unwittingly cut themselves off from.
The attorneys at Carabin & Shaw will not let that happen to you. Even if it has been a few weeks and several conversations since your Pleasanton car wreck accident, we can help you sort through what was and was not said, and develop a strategy for getting your case from beginning to winning.
The following is a list of things our lawyers recommend you should do in the immediate aftermath of Pleasanton auto accidents:
- Call 911 and make sure you file a police or accident report. The Pleasanton officers who arrive at the accident scene can help you do this.
- Record information from the parties involved, such as names and insurance companies.
- Take pictures of the accident scene.
- Only answer questions from the responding officer or your insurance agent.
- Do not give out any other information regarding the accident; the negligent party can use this information against you.
- Do not leave the scene of the accident until the police report has been completed.
- Always seek medical assistance, even if you do not think you have been injured. Make sure you get a medical opinion from a board-certified medical doctor.
- Make copies of all documentation of your doctor's visit.
If you are incapacitated, in too much pain, or your usual technological devices are harmed beyond use, you can still try to collect some of this information after the fact. Our attorneys and investigators in Pleasanton will also be there to help fill in any gaps of information.Damages and Compensation
Cases involving injury or death sustained from a Pleasanton car wreck accident typically award damages to the victim or the victim's family members. These awards can be applied to medical expenses, future medical care, lost wages, loss of future earning potential, loss of benefits, property damage, pain and suffering, and mental anguish.Call Carabin & Shaw Today
