Why You Need a Car Accident Lawyer

A car accident can quickly turn your life upside down, leaving you unable to work, and you may be facing a lengthy recovery. While you focus on getting your life back to normal, an attorney can handle the legal side. They will assist you with filing your insurance claim and ensure the responsible party is held accountable for your losses. To do so, they will determine which parties are liable and build a solid case on your behalf by: 

  • Collecting evidence from the accident. 
  • Hiring an expert to recreate the accident if necessary to prove fault. 
  • Reviewing police reports and photographs of the scene and vehicles involved. 
  • Interviewing and taking witness statements.
  • Obtaining available video footage of the accident.
  • Gaining access to the at-fault parties’ driving records.
  • Getting copies of your medical reports and, if needed, consulting medical experts to explain the extent and long-term impact of your injuries. 
  • Considering the at-fault parties’ insurance policies and limits. 

The at-fault party’s insurance company will likely try to minimize their liability by placing the blame on you. Having a lawyer lets you have peace of mind that your right to compensation will be fought for and protected. 

Common Causes of Car Accidents in Richmond

Car accidents can occur for any number of reasons, but the leading causes in Richmond include: 

  • Inattentive/distracted driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Ignoring traffic signals
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Speeding
  • Abrupt or blind lane changes
  • Driver fatigue
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Failing to adjust to changes in weather/road conditions
  • Defectively designed or manufactured vehicles and/or components
  • Dangerous road conditions 

Victims can suffer catastrophic harm in these types of collisions. When an accident was preventable, and another party is responsible, injury victims are entitled to reimbursement for medical bills, property damage, lost income, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more.

The steps taken after an accident can significantly impact an injury claim and whether you can recover compensation. 

  • Call 911 or notify the police. If you or others are injured, call 911 for emergency medical help. When injuries seem minor, still inform the local police department or highway patrol so an accident report can be made. This report will be critical when filing an insurance claim as it provides objective information about the accident and what the officer believes occurred.
  • Document the scene. Take pictures of the location of the accident, vehicles involved, any damage to property, skid marks, your injuries, etc. 
  • See a doctor. As soon as you can, seek out medical attention. Linking any injuries and possible injuries to the accident is critical.
  • Speak to an attorney. Most car accident lawyers offer a free consultation to discuss your case and legal options.
