Bad End to the Perfect Day | Freeway Accidents

road rage fight

The skies are blue, the sun is shining. Taking advantage of the great weather, you and your family decide to head over to Long Beach to hit the waves and do some afternoon shopping. With the perfect Saturday coming to an end, everyone piles back into the car, buckles up, and you head home.

After crossing the San Gabriel River, a nearby vehicle attempts to merge into your lane without looking. They sideswipe your car on the Garden Grove Freeway. Pulling off to the side of the road, the first thing you do is check to make sure that everyone in the car is okay. To your dismay, you discover that your son in the back seat has hit his head against the side window. Immediately calling emergency services, you get out of the car to check on him. Moments after planting your feet firmly onto the pavement, you are met by an approaching, angry driver. Furious that you contacted the authorities, and threatening to take legal action against you, the perpetrator instantly blames you for the accident.

Shortly afterwards, an ambulance pulls up, and two E.M.T.’s rush over to your car. Following them to the hospital, you are later told that your child has a major concussion. After talking to the police in the waiting room, they file an accident report, and the allow you to see your son. Worried about your child and their health, you are unsure of what to do next.

After checking on your son, the next important thing to do are to contact your insurance company, and get a hold of a good lawyer. Do not wait around for the other driver’s representative to call you first. Furthermore, having great representation is incredibly important after your accident.
