What Is Auto Negligence?
Generally speaking, auto negligence is a failure to operate a motor vehicle in a reasonably safe manner, with due regard to terrain, weather and other vehicles. Negligence can involve distracted driving, impairment, fatigued driving, speeding, running red lights, and ignoring traffic signs or signals, to name just a few.
Laws regarding auto negligence differ across the country, but the award-winning team at Michigan-based Fieger Law has experience navigating statutes in each state.
You need counsel to ensure you are handling evidence appropriately, dealing with others involved in the crash, and communicating with insurance companies and their accident lawyers in a manner that protects you and gets the benefits you deserve.
What to Do If You Are Involved In a Car Accident
Following an accident, here are some steps you absolutely want to follow:
- Don’t leave the scene: Never leave the scene of an accident. If you have to move your vehicle for safety purposes, get it to the side of the road but stay nearby. You can also take an extra step and set up flares or keep your flashers on to keep the scene safe.
- Call 911: Call the police right away and wait for them at the scene. This remains true even if there are no serious injuries. This call may be important to file a claim with your insurance company.
- Exchange Information: Gather insurance and contact details of all other drivers involved, and give your information to them.
- Report the Accident: Call your insurance company immediately with your police report number if available and tell them about the accident. Many policies require that you immediately file a report.
- Get Medical Help: This step is absolutely crucial. If you have suffered even minor injuries, going to your local emergency room or seeing your family physician is essential to your future health. It is also important when building a personal injury claim, especially if health issues arise.
- Protect Your Rights: If you are injured, call Fieger Law to learn what important steps you should take when reporting your injury to your insurer, requesting the proper forms, and documenting your medical care.
From the moment we start your claim to its conclusion, we take everything seriously and to heart. We act as if we are representing ourselves because you and your family deserve the best possible legal guidance and moral support during this difficult time.
