The facts in this particular case state that two motorists were involved and at least one person suffered serious injuries when one of the vehicles overturned. Police will seek to find out if either driver violated any rules of the road by speeding, driving reckless, drunk driving or making illegal turns. Evidence gathered at the scene may help police piece together what happened as well as determine whether any mechanical failures contributed to the crash or injuries sustained. It’s always helpful if there are witnesses or multiple people who can be interviewed about what led to the crash.  If you were hurt in a collision it’s advisable that you speak with an attorney to ensure your legal rights are protected.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
