Driving in traffic requires a heightened sense of awareness due to the increased volume of cars on the road and the unavoidable presence of that impatient and careless driver who speeds through traffic without regard for the safety and well being of others. If you have been injured in a traffic collision caused by a neglectful or reckless driver, an experienced auto accident attorney can help you obtain justice and hold the negligent driver accountable for his hor her actions.
There are a number of different things that your attorney will do to protect your rights after a traffic collision. From investigation of the scene of the crash, to obtaining police reports from government agencies, to obtaining hospital records and medical records documenting your injuries, to obtaining witness statements, your attorney will slowly and methodically put together the pieces and build your case. The stronger of a case you can build and present to the insurance carrier of the negligent driver that caused the traffic collision, the greater of a financial recovery you will usually receive.
An ambulance and police officer will usually be the first to arrive at the scene. Police officers will typically prepare a police report, providing a detailed account of the accident. However, their reports are not always accurate. Where possible, it is always advisable to make an independent investigation and inspection of the scene of the incident, taking your own pictures to document what happened. That way, if there are inaccuracies in the police report, there will be pictures to show what really happened.
