If you’ve been in a car accident and there were injuries involved, it is usually a good idea to consult an attorney to make sure your legal rights are protected. An accident usually happens so quickly that important details may be left out of the police report at the scene. Even what seems like the smallest of details may be important in determining who’s at fault for the accident, and what damages may be available. It’s important that the names all witnesses be recorded, photos are taken, and statements from all parties are obtained, so that all facts can be brought to light in the case. If some of these things are not done properly, then an attorney may be able to further investigate, including interviewing witnesses or obtaining further statements from the parties involved.
