Assist Your Auto Accident Lawyers in Las Vegas to Build a Case
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, there are several ways to help your auto accident lawyer in Las Vegas build a strong case for you:
Call an attorney as soon as possible after the collision. If you are unable to do so due to injuries, ask a friend or family member to contact an attorney on your behalf.
Do not discuss your case with an insurance representative. What you say may be used against you and may harm your case. Your attorney will negotiate with insurers on your behalf. Also, never sign an insurance document without your lawyer’s consent.
Don’t admit fault to anyone. Conversations with other motorists should be limited to gathering contact and other information about insurance and injuries. Be pleasant and courteous to other motorists, but never admit fault.
Photograph the scene of the accident. Taking pictures is often overlooked but preserved images can be critically important at a later time, especially if there is a liability dispute in your case. This is especially important because Metro no longer responds to non-injury accidents, and therefore no police report will be generated to aid the parties in determining who was a t fault. If possible, photograph the location of the accident, damage to vehicles along with those involved in the collision. If you don’t have a cell phone with a camera, keep a disposable camera handy in your glove box.
Seek medical help promptly. Oftentimes, injuries are not immediately apparent and can take time to present. Medical attention may also prevent your injuries from becoming more serious.
Gather the names and phone numbers of witnesses. Ask someone else to perform this task if injuries prevent you from doing this.
Keeping these details in mind in the minutes after an accident may be difficult but could make a huge difference in the outcome of your case.
During an initial consultation with your auto accident lawyers in Las Vegas, you may also be asked to file a police report if law enforcement was not present at the accident scene or submit to further medical examinations.
