What Should I Do After a Car Accident in Long Beach?
Long Beach, like the rest of Los Angeles, is no stranger to car accidents. In 2012, almost 2,000 total injuries and deaths were attributed to motor vehicle accidents in Long Beach, according to the California Highway Patrol. That is the second highest in Los Angeles County, which by way of comparison is no small amount. Too often, when dealing with contrasts that high, we are lulled into a "statistically acceptable" attitude, despite the fact that each one of the numbers represents a family member or a loved one.
Knowing that - if you or someone you care about has recently been involved in a wreck, it is important to know you are not alone and there are options. By taking the following steps immediately you can ensure your safety as well as any long term legal action you may consider:
- Medical Attention - Regardless of how minor the incident or injury may seem, speaking with a medical professional following an accident is a prudent step to take. Hidden injuries and maladies can appear long after a wreck has happened. Additionally, any documentation supplied by your doctor can become mitigating evidence in a personal injury suit later on.
- Evidence - Whether you are currently standing along the highway waiting for the police or recovering in a hospital, collecting evidence of the wreck is of the utmost importance. You'll want to gather up any and all photographic and video evidence you can find, along with eye-witness accounts. Obviously, it is important not to impede any police investigation, but securing these bits of proof can go a long way in proving your case to an insurance company, a judge or both. Keeping the damaged vehicle safe from further destruction is important as well – specialists will need to review the overall damage to make their recommendations.
- Speak to a Personal Injury Lawyer - Before you speak to an insurance company, either yours or the opposing drivers', be sure to contact a Long Beach personal injury attorney who can put your interests first. Insurance adjustors are out to keep their bottom line as low as possible, meaning your settlement will be far less than what you need to recover. Additionally, anything said between you and the at-fault party may be held against you in a later suit. Be sure to contact a lawyer to review your options before proceeding with any legal action.
