Tennessee Car Accident Lawyer

Auto Accident Attorney serving clients in Tennessee and North Georgia

At some point in their lives, most people experience an auto accident. The number of car accidents increases every year involving millions of Americans. Even though a common event, an accident is unanticipated, and the impact and resulting injury are to some degree life changing, even if only for a short time. However, for many, injuries are disastrous, last a lifetime or result in death.

At Morgan Adams, our injury lawyers represent clients who have been seriously injured in car accidents. There are important actions you should take if you have been involved in an auto accident. Having a checklist to follow in case of an accident can help you avoid unforeseen pitfalls later on. Here is a list of suggestions:

  • Secure your area

Turn on the hazard lights on your car. Move the car to a safe location if possible, rather than staying in traffic.

  • Assess damage and injuries

If you are seriously injured, receiving medical attention is top priority. If others are injured, and if you are trained in first aid, do what you can to help them. If you have sustained minor injury, seek medical attention after gathering information from the accident scene.

  • Report the accident

Call the police to report the accident and injuries of people involved. Make sure you call the police and file a report, even if the accident seems minor.

  • Limit discussion about the accident

Although you may feel compelled to talk about the accident, do not admit fault or liability. Only discuss the accident with your insurance agent, lawyer or the police and describe your viewpoint of what occurred.

  • Gather Information

Take down names, addresses, and phone numbers of everyone involved in the accident. Also get contact information for witnesses, if possible. Exchange insurance information with other vehicle owners in the collision. Take down license plate numbers. Get the police officer’s name and phone number. If you have a camera or camera phone, take pictures of the accident scene.

  • Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer

If you are seriously injured, you should contact a Chattanooga Personal Injury Lawyer as soon as possible. The sooner an attorney becomes involved in your case, the sooner evidence can be documented and preserved, and other case preparation can begin.
