Car accidents are a leading cause of serious injury among people between the ages of 18 and 34. And, according to the Kentucky Traffic Collision Facts Report, there were 721 road fatalities in 2011, of which 575 were in motor vehicles.
At the Franklin Law Group in Louisville, we pay attention to statistics, but we treat our clients like people. And, whether you were the driver or a passenger, we understand the pain of your injury and the confusion of dealing with insurance companies, their adjusters and their lawyers. As your attorneys, we are your advocates. We stand up for you and make sure you are heard, and that you get just, fair and full compensation to recover damages for:
Take a moment to make sure you have a few “car accident essentials” in your glove compartment. Make sure you have your current registration and insurance ID card on hand, as well as a small notebook and a pen or pencil. If your cell phone does not have a camera, purchase an inexpensive disposable camera to keep in your car.
If you are in an accident and an injury is involved, get immediate medical help. Chances are the police will be the first to arrive at the scene. If you are able to, present them with your driver’s license number, registration and insurance ID. Also, if possible, get the name, driver’s license number and insurance information, address and phone number of any other driver involved. If there are witnesses, get their names and phone numbers as well. If possible, take pictures of the accident scene.
Do not neglect what may seem like a minor injury: Some injuries sneak up on you, particularly soft tissue injuries like whiplash. Sometimes, mild concussions or even internal injuries are not immediately evident. It is important to get checked out — it may be critical to your health and to your personal injury case.
Do not talk to the insurance company, their lawyer or their adjuster: Everything you say to the insurance company, no matter how innocent it may seem to you, is possible ammunition in their case against you.
Do get help from a dedicated Louisville auto accident attorney: At the Franklin Law Group, we have more than 40 years of experience in helping people throughout Kentucky, by advocating for them and by using our skills and resources to develop a successful claim on their behalf.
