If you’ve been in a car accident recently, you and your family members could be injured, disoriented, and stressed. It’s important to know that the car accident lawyers in Agoura Hills can help you deal with a car accident every step of the way. That’s why the first three things you should do after a car accident are 1) call the police; 2) seek medical attention; and 3) call a lawyer.

The police report provides a valuable record of what happened during the accident. It can provide evidence of what each car did, who struck whom, and what the damages were.

Medical attention must be sought immediately after an accident. Save your records and notes from any conversation with the medical personnel. Tell them precisely what happened. If you are bruised or bleeding, you will know without question that you must seek medical attention.

But did you know that many serious medical injuries caused by an accident may show no signs or symptoms until days later? These include concussions and other traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) whose symptoms can worsen over time. Soft tissue injuries or damage to the nervous system can also take weeks to manifest.

Lawyers Can Negotiate for You

The reason you need to call an Agoura Hills car accident lawyer immediately is because they can help you negotiate all the facets of the car accident. Since people who have been in an accident may be distressed and disoriented, you need an advocate on your side.

Lawyers can present all the facts calmly and emotionally. Suppose you say to the police, for example, “I just didn’t see [the other vehicle].” This doesn’t mean you were at fault for the accident. The other car might have been driving on the wrong side of the road or otherwise violating traffic laws! Visibility may have been poor. But, unfortunately, it is the kind of statement that can be taken out of context by the other driver’s advocates. You may be liable when the other party was guilty.

Sometimes, even insurance companies will try to get a driver to admit responsibility. An experienced Agoura Hills car accident attorney can negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf.

Finally, if you or a family member have been injured, a lawyer can negotiate successfully so you can obtain compensation for damages. You may be paying large medical bills or hospital bills. You may need months of physical therapy. You may have lost time and wages from work, or become unable to work at your occupation. Damage to your car may have meant you had to rent a car to get to work — or risk missing work entirely.

All of these costs, or the forfeit of wages and work, can be compensated by the party responsible for the accident.

Car accident lawyers can also investigate the causes of accidents. Was the other driver distracted by cell phones? Under the influence of alcohol? A very poor driver who ignored traffic signs? Your lawyer can investigate the causes and determine who was at fault for the accident.
