Having Nogales & Associates on your side is the best way to move your case along efficiently and get the results you deserve.
What to Do After a Car or Truck Accident
Even the most careful drivers can find themselves in the middle of a car accident. The unfortunate truth about being behind the wheel is that we can’t control the actions of drivers around us. If you’ve just been in an accident, there are a few things you can do to make the following days easier. First and foremost, if anybody involved needs immediate medical attention, call 911. Even if there are no serious injuries, you should still call the police, so they can document the incident. Be sure not to leave the scene, because this could have legal implications against you.
Next, you and the other drivers involved should exchange names, addresses, phone numbers, license plate numbers, insurance providers and policy numbers, so that your respective insurance companies can get to work on your case. Take photos of both vehicles and anything else related to the accident. It’s also not a bad idea to record the exchange. Then, you may consider a medical checkup, even if you feel okay, just to be sure. Lastly, and most importantly, call Nogales & Associates to set up your consultation with our bilingual car and truck accident lawyers.
How Your Vehicle Accident Case Will Work
After our initial consultation, we’ll start getting down to business. A vehicle accident case has a lot of details, and even the most minor could make a difference. The quicker you connect with us, the fresher these details will be on the minds of all involved. It’s essential to get started on a car accident case as soon after it occurs as possible.
We’ll start with a thorough investigation of what happened. We’ll work with investigators to assess the scene of the accident, or even recreate how it occurred. If you took photos of the accident, this is very helpful for this phase. If not, we’ll take photos of the scene and any damage to your vehicle and your own body.
Our team will interview you and anybody else involved and go over the driving records of both parties. We’ll review the police report and medical records, if there are any from the accident. We use this info to build your case and prove the opposing party’s negligence.
After the investigation phase, we’ll move to assessing your damages. There are “special” damages: car repairs, medical bills, wages lost from losing work. We count these as financial losses. “General” damages are non-financial: physical or mental anguish and suffering, short or long-term disability, general decline in quality of life. Special damages are more sensible to quantify, but general damages deserve settlement as well.
The goal in assessing your damages is to be sure you’re getting all the financial reimbursement you deserve. While money can’t erase the effects of your accident, it can help alleviate some of the burdens that arise.
We’ll then get busy preparing an insurance claim and negotiating with your insurance company. Using all the information gained from investigating the accident and assessing your damages, we’ll put together what we believe to be a fair insurance claim.
This is one of the most essential reasons to have a lawyer. More often than not, insurance companies push back on car accident claims in effort to pay you less. With the Nogales & Associates car and truck accident lawyers on your side, that won’t be the case for you.
