Episode #009 – What should you do after a car accident?

Do you know what to do in the event of a car accident? Have you any idea when is the best time to see the doctor? If you’re not sure whether you should see a doctor after an accident, then you should be asking for more serious health issues.

Car accidents happen every day, especially in busy cities like Sacramento. Those who keep up-to-date with the latest safety tips have a higher chance of preventing some of the complications after an auto accident. Are you one of these informed drivers?

If you’re interested in staying safe after a vehicle collision then you’ll want to invest 20 minutes to listen to this edition of The Law Show Sacramento where your host Nick Jaworski interviews Travis Black from Travis G. Black & Associates, Inc. about the best course of action to take if you are in a traffic accident.

All drivers are at risk for a collision at some point. The Sun Herald reports that both drivers in an April 2014 crash that left ten dead and many others injured had clean driving records. Knowing what to do in the time following such an accident can potentially help prevent worse problems.

Why You Need a Lawyer Who Understands the System

The episode kicks off with a bit about how Travis’ law enforcement and insurance backgrounds helps him empathize with accident victims. He explains how his past experiences help him understand the process that these people go through after a collision.

Having a lawyer who understands how the system works gives you an advantage. It means there’s less chance of overlooking the fine details when resolving the post-accident situation.

If you’re the victim of an accident and aren’t using a lawyer now, then you could be asking for big problems in the future.

Knowing What to Do In Case of an Accident

Next Travis explains what led to his becoming a lawyer to represent the victims rather the insurance companies. He also answers these questions regarding being in a car accident:

  • What steps can I take to get the most from my insurance company?
  • What should I do if I find myself at the scene of a car accident?
  • How can a cell phone help after a car accident takes place?
  • What should I do after it’s okay to leave the scene of the accident?
  • When should I see a doctor after a car accident takes place?

Now ask yourself two questions. Do you know what to do during an accident? Are you confident about when is the best time to see the doctor if you’ve been involved in a vehicle collision?

If you answered “No” to either or both of these questions it’s time to learn those things now before you are involved in a car accident.

Start Rethinking Your Rules and Relationships

Next Travis Black talks about when to use health insurance for getting medical treatment after an automobile accident, and what alternatives you might have beyond that.

It’s human nature to not want to complain. Travis goes on to discuss the disadvantages of under-disclosing information after a car accident, and offers some tips for how to make sure you’re giving your doctor the right information.

Lawyers are there to help you make the right decisions after an auto-mobile accident. You can be sure that the other party is using one. Why don’t you make an appointment for a free consultation?

The episode wraps up with Travis sharing some final tips on how to prepare with a visit to your doctor after an auto-mobile accident.
