Steps to Take if You are in a Car/Truck Accident

They can prevent you from working and rob you of your quality of life.Proper compensation can’t make the injuries go away, but it can ease the burden they place on you and your family.

Few events are as traumatic as a car accident. What you do in the moments following a collision is important for your health and your legal case. The steps you should take if someone hits your car follows:

Do not panic:

It is important to you remain calm. Amidst the broken glass and smoke, you may be in shock. However, panicking will only scare your passengers and prevent you from thinking clearly.

Do not leave the scene:

You should never leave the scene of a crash. Under New Jersey law, you must remain at the scene of an accident. If you leave, you may be at fault for a hit and run, even if the other driver actually caused your car accident. Furthermore, leaving the accident will seriously hurt any chances you might have of recovering compensation.

Seek medical attention:

You must seek medical attention immediately if you are in an car accident. Even if you appear to have minor injuries, you should still see a doctor. Medical personnel can prevent minor injuries from becoming worse and treat life-threatening conditions. Additionally, seeking prompt medical care is beneficial for your legal case.

Call the police:

The police will create an accident report that documents the facts of the collision. This record is beneficial to your legal case.

Contact an attorney:

You must hire a qualified and experienced car accident lawyer. Lawyers can recommend a course of action, fight for you, and negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf.

Trimble & Armano’s reputation

The road of life can have many unexpected bumps and turns along the way, and you do not want to bounce the wrong way when it comes to legal matters. I have come to trust and admire John Trimble, Jr., for almost 15 years now. When it comes to legal advice and expertise, John is one of the best! I have had some difficult struggles with personal injury, a house fire, and a contract dispute, to name a few. John Trimble represented me with a confidence and style that reflect compassion and understanding. This is priceless when you are in pain, hurting, confused, and not sure what to do next. I was always glad he was my attorney and not opposing counsel! John will advise you every step of the way.

John, I want to thank you for all of the work you did on my case. I appreciate the way you took the time to explain the process to me and respond to all of my questions. You have an intimate knowledge of local, state, and federal practices and procedures, and you are a bright and resourceful person who made yourself available whenever needed. You fought tooth and nail against a combative defense attorney with decades of experience, and in the end achieved a great result for me. I plan on recommending your firm to everyone!
