Syracuse Auto Accident Attorney, New York Injury Lawyer
The lawyers of The Stanley Law Offices have helped many people who’ve been injured in an accident. Being hurt in an accident can seem overwhelming, particularly in the period of time immediately following an accident. Through our years of helping people, we’ve developed a six point plan to follow in the period of time following an accident.
- If anyone requires medical assistance, call 911 immediately.
- Remain calm and secure the scene of the accident with hazards and flares.
- Don’t discuss the accident with anyone other than law enforcement, and don’t admit fault.
- Take photographs of the accident.
- Notify your insurance company if you’ve been sued.
- Contact a personal injury lawyer to discuss your options.
Auto Accident Checklist
Taking these steps in the time following an accident can serve as an effective way to preserve evidence. In fact, filling out the Stanley Law Offices Checklist before meeting with us can help our personal injury attorneys evaluate your case.
Injuries can be missed. Records can be inaccurate. Charts can be lost.
That’s why it’s especially important to pay close attention to your doctor’s actions. Make sure that you don’t minimize your injuries when you explain them to your doctor. Make sure he or she writes everything down correctly in your chart. If necessary, bring a friend or family member with you to make sure that this is done. And — if your doctor isn’t getting it right — don’t be afraid to see someone else.
