Every Auto Accident is Different
Every car crash is different, and we have just about seen them all.
Accidents can be caused by another driver’s poor choices such as driving while drunk or under the influence of medications. They can be caused when a driver allows themselves to become distracted while behind the wheel by texting or talking on the phone, and they can be caused when a person gets behind the wheel when they haven’t had enough sleep.
There are single-car accidents, multi-car pile-ups, head-on collisions, rollovers, and tire blow-outs. A driver can cause an accident by not following the rules of the road, speeding, or disregarding traffic signals. Dangerous road conditions or vehicle defects can cause accidents as well.
Regardless of how your accident happened, we have seen it before and we know how to help.
Understanding Insurance Companies
At Johnny Gardner Law, we understand insurance law, and we understand how insurance companies work.
When a person files a claim, it is in the insurance company’s best interest to not pay that claim, to pay only a part of what the person is entitled to, or to delay payment for as long as possible. Your attorney at Johnny Gardner Law knows the law, knows the games that insurance companies play, and will fight for you to obtain full compensation for your injuries.
What Should I do if I was Involved in an Accident?
If you have been in an auto accident, you should:
Seek medical assistance immediately. Even if you do not need emergency medical assistance, you should immediately contact your doctor and get a check-up. Whip-lash and other neck injuries, back injuries, and soft-tissue damage are common injuries that may have a delayed onset and you will need documentation from a medical professional to pursue your case.
Call the police. Accident reports are a key source of information in an auto accident claim. Make sure that you give input to the responding officers if possible to ensure that their information is accurate.
Report the accident to your insurance company. Don’t give them a detailed statement, just make sure that you immediately report that the accident happened. Even your own insurance company is going to be looking out for their own bottom line, so do not provide any statements to the insurance company until you have consulted with your attorney.
Gather any evidence that you can. Get contact information and even statements from any witnesses on the scene. Take photographs or video of the scene if you are able, and take photographs of your injuries and any other persons’ injuries immediately after the accident. Begin gathering your medical records so that you can provide them to your attorney.
