Being involved in a traffic accident is not what anyone wants to do with their days. If some sort of accident does take place, it pays to call an auto accident attorney as soon as possible. Making the call while waiting for the police to arrive is not too soon. Here are some ways the attorney can help.
Keeping Things Organized
People are not at their best when some sort of accident takes place. There may be things they need to do on the spot, but they can’t think about it without some prompting. The auto accident attorney can provide that prompting.
While the client may be excited and not thinking clearly, the attorney can help to calm the client and provide a quick list of things that must be done. That includes making sure the police are notified, insurance information is exchanged, and pictures of the damage is taken. The goal is to ensure that by the time the police arrive and begin to compile the accident report, all the other essentials are already out of the way.
Dealing with the Insurance Company
Rest assured that the team at the insurance company would love to have any excuse to shift at least part of the responsibility for the accident to the innocent party. The best way to avoid providing them with any grounds is to have all questions directed to the legal counsel. This will prevent the client from providing what seems to be an innocent response to a general question, only to find that response is used as a way to lessen the amount of compensation offered, or to deny the claim altogether. The attorney will be on the alert for any leading questions and deal with them appropriately.
For anyone who is involved in an auto accident, the best move is to call Edwards & Bullard Law immediately, because doing so will help to ensure the rights of the client are protected and that no essential task is left undone. In the best case scenario, the firm will see to it that any compensation due to the client is provided in a timely manner and without a great deal of trouble. You can like them on Facebook.
