Insurance companies DO NOT want to pay for their insured’s negligence as a result of injuries resulting from a car wreck or 18-wheeler accident. The insurance companies will try every way possible to low-ball an offer to the injured party who was not at fault. Khalaf & Nguyen attorneys go head-to-head against the insurance companies to get what the injured client deserves. If the at-fault party does not have insurance coverage, then un-insurance coverage could be available if the not-at-fault party has such coverage. Dealing with insurance companies and adjusters is not an easy feat, so save yourself some time and headache and contact Khalaf & Nguyen at 601.688.8888 for a free consultation.
If you are in a car wreck, then there is some important information that you will need to provide your attorney: Address, phone number, detail regarding vehicle repair, photographs, medical bills, information about your job, and receipts. Here are some tips that you can follow if you are involved in a car wreck:
Exchange InformationWrite down each driver's name, phone number, address, license plate number, driver's license number, description of the vehicles involved (make, year, model, etc.), all involved parties' insurance information and policy number.
Take PicturesTake photos of the entire accident scene from different angles. Make sure to take photos of each vehicle (even if there is no damage). If possible, take photos of each person involved in the accident.
Witnesses' InformationGather the name and contact information (phone number and address) of each individual who witnessed the accident. Ask each witness to explain to the police what they saw.
Do Not Discuss FaultDo not ever admit fault to the police or to any other driver. Just explain to the police what happened. The attorneys and insurance companies determine who was at fault.
Personal RecordTake all of the information that was gathered and make a personal record. Write down as many facts as possible, such as the weather (sunny, rainy, cloudy, day, night), road conditions, diagram of how the accident happened, and other useful information.
Protect Your Legal RightsImmediately contact an attorney, especially if there were injuries. An experienced attorney can deal with the insurance company and can protect your legal rights. Remember that all insurance companies have their own attorneys.
