Every day, thousands of Americans are involved in car accidents. Whether a serious hit and run accident or a simple rear end accident, the aftermath of any vehicle collision can be devastating. We at the Todd R. Durham Law Firm are your personal injury attorneys and will work hard to rectify the situation by litigating for you and your rights. There are some important things to remember after a car accident to ensure a strong case and a successful legal outcome.
Document All Evidence
Documenting all the aspects of the car accident is often pivotal to the success of your case. Taking pictures of the scene of the accident including any skid marks, car damages, and car or other debris will be helpful in the litigation process. Writing down the circumstances of the accident including your vehicle speed, weather conditions, traffic conditions and any witness statements will also likely serve your case.
Seek Medical Evaluation
It is very important for your health, as well as for your legal case, to seek out a medical evaluation after an auto accident. Often a car accident does bodily harm that can have long-lasting effects (chronic back pain, headaches, etc). Having medical documentation of car accident injuries that occur in Lewisville, Denton, Coppell, Frisco and surrounding areas will be very important to your case and help to ensure fair compensation.
While the effects of a car accident are stressful, documenting all accident evidence and getting medical attention are things you can do to strengthen your legal case. We, at Todd R. Durham Law Firm, can help you achieve a fair and just legal outcome. Call us at 214-222-4000 to schedule a consultation.
