What Should Maryland Motor Vehicle Accident Victims Do After an Accident?

What Should Maryland Motor Vehicle Accident Victims Do After an AccidentThere are many things that need to be done after an accident and to help to get these things done, Rockville, MD MVA lawyers can counsel you on what your legal rights are.

If you have been injured in an accident, please take a few seconds to breathe and clear your head. You will be much more effective at helping yourself and others if you remain calm and focused. If you or anyone else is injured, please call 911.

If you have contacted medical personnel, please consider calling the offices of Cohen & Cohen Speaking with us before speaking with law enforcement officers, insurance companies and even others involved with the accident may significantly impact your ability to take certain legal actions moving forward. In addition, our firm can help you navigate the aftermath of your accident so that you don’t have to make any consequential decisions alone. For reputable MVA lawyers who are licensed to practice in Rockville and throughout MD, DC and VA, contact Cohen & Cohen for a free case evaluation.

If Someone Is Hurt

If anyone is injured or may be injured, please call 911. There is nothing more important than ensuring that the health of everyone involved is attended to. It is worth noting that some injuries do not manifest symptoms until days or even weeks after an accident, so if you suspect anyone may develop whiplash, may have a concussion or other injury that may initially be difficult to spot, please be cautious and call for medical assistance even if symptoms are not present.

Only after medical assistance has been notified of injuries or possible injuries should you move on to your next steps. Rockville, MD MVA lawyers may be able to help you with these.

Next Steps

If you have called for any necessary assistance and called us, you can feel confident in taking some additional actions.

It is generally important to remain at the sight of the accident, unless you need to be transported to the hospital promptly. Evidence tends to become more challenging to obtain and verify once an accident scene is abandoned. If you are in a position to do so, you may want to take a few pictures of the accident scene with your cell phone, as these images may prove important later. Your lawyers may use your photos of your Rockville MVA as evidence to help them build a strong case for you.

You may choose to speak with law enforcement officers, witnesses, or others involved in the accident, although you may wish to wait until your attorney is present, simply because even the most seemingly innocuous statement now may impact legal action later. You may also opt to exchange insurance information at this point. One of the only exceptions to this course of action involves fender benders. It may not make sense to exchange information if only your car sustained damage and that damage was minor. In this case, reporting the damage may lead to a rate hike you may wish to avoid by paying out of pocket.

MVA lawyers who are experienced with Rockville, MD courts and insurance companies, may be able to help you determine what your next steps should be.

Please Call as Soon as You Can

Legal options change quickly in the wake of an accident. Evidence may become harder to obtain and verify as soon as victims leave the scene of an accident. In addition, it is possible to compromise future legal opportunities if you speak with law enforcement officers, insurance companies and even others involved in an accident, before you have spoken with an attorney. If you have been involved in an accident, please call our firm as soon as you can. We can help to ensure that you preserve your legal options and safeguard your legal rights moving forward.

For Rockville, MD MVA lawyers who have over 25 years of experience in successfully defending the rights of injured people, contact Cohen & Cohen any time of the day or night, any day of the year.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
