What should I do if I was injured in a California car accident?

There is often a lot of confusion following a California car accident.  Since this experience is new for most people, it is easy to become overwhelmed and make wrong decisions.  Before you sign anything from the insurance company, you need to talk to a Los Angeles car accident attorney at Steinberg.

When you are involved in an auto accident, you need to write down everything you can about the crash.  Record the details of the crash, your medical treatment, the amount of time you had to take off of work and other details about your case.  This information is helpful when negotiating an auto accident settlement.

After a car accident that results in injury, it is imperative that you contact an attorney immediately.  Your car accident lawyer will need time to gather evidence supporting your case, such as police reports, witness statements and medical records.  These documents will be used to build a strong case on your behalf.

The insurance company may try to persuade you to sign documents.  Don’t sign anything given to you by the insurance company.  The more pressure the insurer puts on you, the greater the indication that what they want you to sign is against your best interests.
