Automobile Accident Checklist
If you have ever been involved in an automobile accident, you know it is a confusing and scary time. Odds are that most people will be involved in some form of automobile accident at some point in their life. According to the World Health Organization’s statistics, every year, over 2.35 million people in the United States are injured or disabled as a result of automobile accidents on.
Craig Lowell has been with Wiggins, Childs, Pantazis, Fisher & Goldfarb since 1995. He has a broad array of practice areas, but has avidly fought for automobile accident victims against large insurance companies. As an individual involved in an automobile accident, it is imperative to contact an attorney as quickly as possible. “Big insurance companies begin to investigate the accident as soon as it happens and they are notified,” said Lowell, “and as a victim or party to an automobile accident, an attorney can make sure you’re afforded the same investigation.” The sooner an attorney begins investigating your case, the more data and information they will have access to.
So what are some initial steps to take if you find yourself in an automobile accident?
- First and foremost, make sure that you, and anyone in your vehicle, is OK;
- Check on the status and safety of those around you;
- Contact the police;
- Contact a lawyer.
“My passion is helping people,” said Lowell, “making sure they’re treated fairly, and that the rules of the road are upheld. But mostly, I am passionate about people being safe.” Should you need consultation regarding an automobile accident, please reach out to Craig Lowell or call (205) 314-0500.
