Gathering Information from a Motor Vehicle Accident Scene
You should gather as much information from the accident scene as possible. This includes exchanging names, contact information and insurance information with the other driver. The names and contact information of witnesses, the police file number and your own notes about what happened and what you said will be helpful. Also helpful are photos of the accident scene, the damage to the vehicles and the injuries you incurred. The time and date on which the photos were taken and identification of who took them is important. The information you provide your lawyer can significantly affect your case.
Dealing with Insurance Companies
One of the biggest challenges faced after a car accident is dealing with insurance claims. Dealing with the claims process yourself can feel overwhelming, especially if you are already coping with injuries sustained from the accident. As such, it makes sense to have a motor vehicle accident lawyer guide you and advocate for you throughout the claims process. Let Aylward, Chislett & Whitten take care of dealing with the insurance companies, so you can focus on getting better.
