Lake County Indiana Car, Motorcycle & Truck Accident Lawyer
Accident Attorney Serving Northwest Indiana
The numbers are staggering. In the United States, more than 10 million passenger cars and light trucks are involved in accidents a year. More than 100,000 motorcycles have accidents. A half million large trucks have accidents annually. Everyone who is in a car hopes they will not become one of these statistics, but it happens. Everyone should realize what steps they need to take if they get into an accident that involves cars, motorcycles and trucks.
There are a few things that everyone should know to do if they are in any type of accident involving motor vehicles. Taking these steps right away can help with any problems that arise later.
Check for Injuries – The most important thing in any accident is to find out if anyone is hurt and needs medical attention. Take the time to check on all parties involved, and call for help if needed.
Access Location – Where an accident happens determines many things. If the accident involves vehicles on private property, it is different than if it occurs on the street. The need for law enforcement will depend on the location of the accident and the laws in that area. When in doubt, call the police for help.
Gather Information – If you are okay and do not need medical help, start to gather information. Talk to anyone that saw the accident and get names. Talk to the other parties in the accident and get their names and insurance information. It is better to get the information when it is fresh than to try to remember it later.
Take Pictures – Pictures are a great way to document what happens and any damage because of the accident. It can also show any issues that may contribute to the cause of the accident.
Taking these steps can help resolve any issues that arise after an accident with a car, motorcycle or truck. Often, these are only the beginning. Accidents can create many issues that most people do not have the expertise to manage. That is where Namie Bauer & Associates can help.
Damage Caused by Accidents - Vehicular accidents cost the United States nearly $900 billion per year. That number is so large, it probably does not mean much to anyone. The average collision damage from accidents is more than $3,000. That does not include any damage to other property or for personal injury.
The average claim for accidents, including injury is more than $15,000.
Many people depend on their car for their livelihood. The financial damage an accident can cause can spread to many other parts of life. A small accident that causes a few thousand dollars’ worth of damage can snowball into something much worse. Turning to the attorneys at Namie Bauer & Associates is one way to stop the snowball from gaining speed.
Every accident is different, but the goal that anyone involved in it has, is the same. They want to get back whatever the accident cost them whether it is emotional, physical or financial damage. Our attorneys can help you get the justice and compensation you deserve!
