What to Do After a Car Accident
Though the injury lawyers in our office cover all areas of personal injury, the majority of our cases are car accidents. Living in congested Southern California, it makes sense. Being involved in a car accident can be extremely stressful and there are quite a few things to remember to do after your accident. Below, the car accident lawyers in our Adelanto office have put together a list of things to do after an accident.
- Check yourself for injuries
- After your accident, make sure that you check yourself for visible injuries before you check on anyone else. If someone is seriously injured, contact emergency services right away;
- When it is safe to get out of the car, exchange information with the other driver(s) involved in the accident. This includes:
- Phone number;
- Insurance information;
- License plate number;
- Contact the police and have them come to the scene to take down a report.
- This will be important as they will likely be able to get statements from you and others involved in the accident. Therefore, determining who was at-fault for the incident;
- Take as many pictures as possible
- This includes pictures of your injuries as well as the damage done to your car, the scene of the incident, etc. You have to make sure that you document everything; from what the weather and road conditions were like on the day of the accident to what the surrounding areas looked like during the time as well;
- If there are any witnesses to the car accident, a car accident attorney in our Adelanto office suggests that you get the name and contact information for any witnesses.

However, most people are unaware that Silverthorne Attorneys works on a contingency fee agreement. This means that you do not have to pay fees upfront. Once you sign up with us, you will sign a contingency fee agreement that states that if we, your car accident lawyer are unable to obtain a settlement for your injuries, you do not owe us anything.

About the Insurance Companies
Remember, the insurance company is a business. And they are in the business of making money; even if that means lowballing your settlement. Therefore, they only want to spend money to make money. Spending money to pay your settlement is the last thing that they want to happen, and they will do everything possible to avoid doing so and they will do everything they can to try to get you to accept a settlement that is nowhere near what you need to get back on your feet.
Our Adelanto accident attorneys have years of experience dealing with the insurance companies. We are familiar with their tactics and know how to handle them when they are being unfair. We pride ourselves in not accepting a settlement just to make a quick buck but taking the time to negotiate with the insurance company to get you the maximum settlement for your injuries.
We have successfully negotiated dozens of cases with the insurance companies when they are being unfair. Simply put, we have no problem going up against the insurance companies when they are treating our clients poorly.
