What To Do if You Are Involved in a Car Accident

The moments following a car accident are crucial to the success of your claim in Lexington, SC. Though filing a claim may not be top of mind right after your car accident, it's important to avoid making mistakes that may be used against you.

It's recommended that you don't talk about the accident with the other drivers involved and avoid discussing the accident with the insurance company in Lexington. If you are involved in a car accident you should:

  • Move away from traffic or danger if possible
  • Call 911 and request medical assistance
  • If able, collect the drivers contact information
  • Gather witness statements if possible
  • Give a police statement and collect the officers badge number
  • Seek professional medical assistance

Common Car Accidents We Handle in Lexington

Car accidents are one of the leading causes of injuries in the United States. Nearly 1.3 million people die in car crashes every year, with an average of 3,287 deaths per day, and an additional 20-50 million people are injured or disabled. Cars can also get involved in collisions with other types of vehicles, including trucks, buses, and motorcycles.

Our attorneys have experience with a variety of auto accidents and injury claims:

  • Head-on collisions: One of the most dangerous types of accidents, this occurs when the front ends of two cars collide, often resulting in serious head and brain injuries. These can occur when one car drifts onto the other side of the road and drives against traffic.
  • Motorcycle crashes: Motorcycle accidents are often caused by drivers who fail to yield to them or see them when changing lanes. Motorcyclists often experience catastrophic injuries from being struck by cars.
  • Drunk driver incidents: Impaired driving puts drivers and others on the road in danger. Being drunk can slow down driver response times and cloud their judgment, causing them to make poor decisions and behave recklessly on the road. They can also be fatigued and fall asleep at the wheel.
  • Tractor-trailer accidents: Truck accidents are some of the most devastating accidents, as the sheer size and weight of a tractor-trailer can cause massive damage to other vehicles and passengers.

Injuries range depending on the force involved, the size of the vehicles, and the nature of the car accident.

Common injuries include:

  • Whiplash
  • Cuts and abrasions
  • Broken bones, burns
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Spinal cord and neck injuries

Your injuries that were caused by another’s negligence are an unfair tragedy that you should not attempt to bear alone. Let our attorneys help you stand up to insurance companies to claim compensation worthy of your injuries.

South Carolina Trucking Accidents

Trucking accidents in Lexington tend to be the most severe form of auto accidents. The size and mass of a loaded truck often result in devastating collisions with passenger vehicles that result in severe injuries and, commonly, death.

Trucking accidents are also further complicated by unique laws and policies that apply to the claims:

  • Interstate commerce laws
  • Multiple-party liability: driver, trucking, and insurance companies
  • Highway safety laws and regulations

An accident victim typically finds him- or herself up against in-house legal counsel for both the trucking and insurance companies that both have an interest in shifting liability to another party. Our law firm serving Lexington understands how to manage the legal complexities of these cases so that our clients can receive maximum compensation from all liable parties.
