A Birmingham Law Firm Representing People Injured In Car Accidents

Our busy American life involves frequent trips in and around motor vehicles, including cars, trucks, motorcycles, buses and other types of vehicles. Most people go to work, go shopping and pursue recreation by driving or riding in some motor vehicle. Even people who walk or bicycle typically encounter cars on or near the roadways they use to get places. Many people are injured or killed every year as a result of automobile accidents in Central Alabama and elsewhere. Life changes suddenly and dramatically when a car accident results in a serious injury or the death of a loved one.

What To Do After A Car Accident And Why You Should Have A Lawyer On Your Side

The most urgent matter after an auto accident is to give an injured person the strongest chance at a good recovery. This means getting prompt medical attention, following doctors' orders and navigating the complex world of medical care and insurance claims.

If possible, you should also do whatever you can to preserve evidence from the scene of the accident. This means taking photos of the scene, getting contact information for eyewitnesses, telling someone or writing your specific memories as soon as possible and keeping track of how you feel each day and which doctors you see.

Besides your physical health, you will soon realize that your financial stability is threatened when injuries are serious or when a wage-earning family member has died in a crash. You should report the accident to your car insurance company if applicable, but beyond that, it is in your best interest to have a lawyer on your side to determine liability and pursue compensation from all available sources, including insurance policies (yours and/or another driver's insurance).

The challenges that you must overcome to recover ample compensation for your injuries, lost wages, and pain and suffering are formidable for most people.

Horsley LLC in Birmingham is available to review your case and make recommendations. If the firm handles your case, you can count on Mr. Horsley to fight skillfully on your behalf.
