What Should I Do After an Accident Resulting in Injury?
In the aftermath of an accident and subsequent injuries and damages, it is only natural to feel scared and confused about what will happen next. But this is the time to maintain your composure and act to protect your interests and preserve your case.
Here are some things to remember in the aftermath of an accident:
Get Medical Attention
Injuries need to be addressed properly. The medical report will provide a professional description and time stamp which are important to your case.
Everything you can find. Photos of the scene, parking stubs, receipts, etc.
Talk to Witnesses
Get the names and contact information from anyone who has seen the events unfold. This testimony could play a key role in the case.
Report the Incident
All accidents should be reported to the proper authorities. This could be the supervisor at work, the security detail from a commercial location, animal services in case of animal attacks or the police for traffic accidents.
Do Not Admit Fault!
You may feel pressured or encouraged to accept blame and proffer an apology to anyone else involved in the accident, but this is a bad idea. A simple apology would be considered an admission of responsibility. Be careful what you say and do.
Call a Personal Injury Lawyer
Accidents that result in injuries can be confusing and stressful. Calling a legal representative will allow you to focus on recovery, while a professional works to protect your interests.

How is Liability Established in California?
California uses the concept of comparative fault to decide who is at fault in an accident that results in injuries. Comparative fault means that you can seek compensation even if you are 99% to blame for the accident.
For example, if you were jogging along the side of the road and got hit by a vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation, for example, $10,000. But if you were also found partially responsible for the accident because you were wearing headphones and listening to music, 10% of the responsibility may be assigned to you. This means you will only be entitled to $9,000 in compensation.

Slip and Falls
This is one of the most common types of accidents and can have a wide range of different injuries, some very serious. This type of case can be especially difficult as the plaintiff must prove they were in no way aware of the danger before the accident took place.
Traffic accidents are another common cause of injuries and damages and can be caused for many reasons. A professional personal injury lawyer can produce an accurate calculation of your damages and injuries and ensure you are properly compensated.
Cyclists will always be at a disadvantage when involved in any kind of traffic accident. The consequences of bike accidents can be very serious and the consequences can last a lifetime.
Construction yards are known for being hazardous work conditions and safety procedures must be carried out to the letter. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident or any kind of workplace accident, contact one of our representatives for advice on what to do next.
While they are friendly and loyal, dogs can be very unpredictable and it is important that canine companions are properly controlled by their human counterparts. If you have been bitten by a dog, contact animal control to make a full report of the incident and have your wounds addressed by a medical professional.
