Unfortunately, car accidents are all too common in our society. According to national statistics, there were 34,247 fatal motor vehicle crashes in the United States in 2017 which claimed 37,133 lives. This resulted in 11.4 deaths per 100,000 people and 1.16 deaths per 100 million miles traveled. For the nearly 30 years that he has been practicing law, Mr. Brown has limited his practice to representing accident victims, many hundreds of which suffered their injuries in car accidents, truck accidents or motorcycle accidents.

Get medical attention. If you find yourself unable to move following an auto accident, don't risk harming yourself even further. Instead, wait for emergency workers to arrive on the scene. Also, even though you may assume you are physically fine with no discernible medical issues, injuries may not become noticeable right away. When you start to feel symptoms which you associate with the accident, visit a doctor immediately. Insurance companies, their lawyers, and many jurors will punish an accident victim who waits too long to see a doctor for his injuries. They frequently assume, wrongly, that no treatment was sought because no injury occurred. You do yourself no favors in the auto accident arena by trying to "tough it out." That is why it is urgent to get examined by a health professional soon after your accident-one who is experienced to recognize the symptoms and look for such injuries.
File a police report. Contact the police to ensure a report of the accident is created. Take pictures of all vehicles involved in the accident to document license plate numbers, vehicle positioning and the property damage sustained by each car. Also be sure to exchange insurance and contact information with the other parties involved and collect contact information for others that may have witnessed the accident.
