What Should You Do After an Accident?

My name is Jim Desmond, and as an injury attorney I help people who are injured in car, truck and motorcycle accidents throughout Kentucky and Southern Indiana. It is important to be represented by an experienced accident and injury lawyer who will hold those who hurt you financially accountable. What should you do immediately after an accident?

No one leaves their home expecting to be involved in an accident. What should you do immediately afterward if you are able? Take pictures of the cars, where they are located and the license plate of the car who caused the accident. Take photos of any injuries you may have. A picture is worth a thousand words. Most importantly, even if you don't believe you are injured enough to go to a hospital, see your family doctor within 24 hours of the accident. Many injuries take weeks or even months to fully develop. If you do not see a doctor immediately after the accident you may not be able to recover for injuries that develop in the next few weeks.

Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to injuries when involved in a motor vehicle accident with a larger vehicle such as a car, SUV or truck. Car crashes cause greater personal injury to a motorcyclist simply because they are completely exposed to the impact of the car crash. Without the protection of a vehicle exterior or automobile airbag, the chances are substantially increased that the injuries can result in surgery, brain damage, broken bones or death.

Tractor Trailer Accident Attorney

Commercial tractor trailers or semi trucks can weigh more than 40 tons, resulting in much longer slowing and braking times. Accidents involving these trucks can be devastating, especially when the other vehicle is a car or motorcycle. Catastrophic injuries, extensive property damage and even death can occur as a result of a serious car wreck. Victims of trucking accidents in Kentucky or Indiana need legal representation that seeks to recover the maximum amount of compensation.

Wrongful Death Attorney

Both Indiana and Kentucky have what is known as wrongful death laws. However, while I have listed the relevant Indiana or Kentucky Statute in the follow page, the application of these laws tends to be fact specific and cannot be addressed in a website. Nevertheless, automobile accidents involving wrongful death illustrate a great unfairness of the law.
