Brighton Beach Car accidents can alter a victim's life in a heartbeat and leave the victim with debilitating injuries. Car accidents now take many different forms with a multitude of various players such as Ubers, Lyfts, sedans and even taxis. Your auto accident lawyer needs to know the insurance companies and contacts for Uber and Lyft and determine where you were with respect to the transportation. Were you in the rideshare vehicle when the collision occurred? If so, there may be certain insurance policies available to you to look to.

What do you do After the Car Accident

When you are involved in an auto accident, you will likely be in a state of shock and your adrenaline will be running. You may not be thinking about what you should be doing, but if possible, some suggestions are:

  • Take a lot of photos of the scene, visible injuries and damages
  • Obtain witness information
  • Obtain insurance information from the operators of the other vehicles           

And most importantly, get checked-out by medical professionals, whether that be a trip to the emergency room or a local medical clinic.

5-Star Google Review

Cassandra S.: Mr. Redenburg was very helpful in aiding us through our case. This was my first time ever going through something like this and he was able to help take off a lot of the stress I was feeling. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs legal advice.

What You Should Not Do After a Car Accident

From disasters we have seen, staying by your vehicle on the road is not usually the safest way to go. It is usually safest to physically get off of the roadway to avoid being struck by oncoming traffic. This is especially true if the lighting is poor or weather conditions are bad.

Do not Sign Anything:Many times following a crash, insurance companies will have their adjusters contact you and make an immediate, but very low-ball offer. This can sometimes seem enticing, especially if you're now out of work and can desperately use some immediate cash. But this is not likely going to be in your best interest and you should speak to an attorney before making such an important decision.

Don't post things about the accident on social media sites. The attorneys or their investigators are known to comb your social media sites to see if there is anything available that will tend to show that you're not as injured as you claim or you were hurt previously.

Rear-End Collisions Many Times Result in Whiplash

Anyone who has ever been struck from behind knows what a jarring event it is. It literally leaves you in a state of shock. Many rear-end collisions happen at stop signs, stop light and in heavy stop-and-go traffic. Because your adrenaline is running and you tense up, what starts out feeling like relatively minimal pain may be a tear that could require surgical intervention. As a practical matter, the hospital emergency room usually just takes x-rays for fractures and you will need to follow-up with other medical professional once released from ER to check for injuries that do not necessarily appear on x-ray films.

You might have whiplash if you are experiencing the following symptoms:

  • Constant burning or tingling pain in your neck
  • Migraines or chronic headaches
  • Feeling nauseous
  • Trouble remembering things
  • Problems concentrating
