Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/20/2012 -- As part of their commitment to helping Phoenix area motorists cope with the aftermath of an auto accident, Simon Law Group is expanding its information outreach campaign with the five things to do when injured in an auto accident. The well-respected full-service firm concentrates in Accident and Injury cases as well as Family Law.
According to the most recent statistics, one person is injured every 10.50 minutes in a traffic accident in Arizona. While identifying the possible causes of a motor vehicle accident may be simple or complicated, most people are unaware of the steps they should take to protect themselves in the aftermath of an auto accident. The Phoenix accident lawyers of Simon Law Group have a great deal of experience dealing with auto accident victims. Firm Partner Craig J. Simon has helped hundreds of Arizona drivers deal with the legal ramifications that an auto accident can bring.
As part of an ongoing educational outreach, the Simon Law Group has begun to stress the five things that motorists must due immediately in the aftermath of an auto accident. “Oftentimes when a client that has been in an auto accident that is not their fault comes to our firm, it is a challenge to accurately piece the events together to build their case,” said Attorney Craig J. Simon. “Spreading the word on the things to do immediately following an auto accident will help better position them to recover damages and put their lives back together.”
According to the Phoenix injury attorney, it is important that drivers be prepared for the possibility of an accident by first keeping an “auto accident kit” in their car. This would consist of simple tools like a pen and paper for taking notes and a camera to take pictures of the damages. Secondly, drivers are urged to always exchange information with other drivers involved, such as getting their full name, phone number, driver’s license number, license plate number, insurance company, and policy number. Next, it is important to remember to file an accident report with the police, which could help speed up the claim process with the victim’s insurance company.
It behooves the victim to immediately notify their insurance company with the facts of the accident and consult with an auto accident lawyer as two of the first things after an auto accident. “A qualified attorney can ensure filing of the proper reports for the claim, advise on obtaining the needed medical records and assist in the process of filing the proper claims with the auto insurance company,” said the Phoenix injury attorney.
