Commuters were greeted with a very slow trip to work on Thursday morning as the split of I-475 and US 23 saw nothing but brake lights.
It was reported by 13 ABC that there were two separate crashes in the area. Traffic remained backed up for quite some time with the news outlets warning drivers to avoid the expressway if possible.
While we do not have many details regarding the accidents that caused the traffic delay, we do have advice for anyone involved.
If you are injured in an accident that is caused by another motorist, the answer is to always contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
These Thursday morning accidents could have been caused by several things – whether it was ice on the roadways or a motorist going left of center. There are many factors that could have caused the accident and if someone becomes injured in such an accident, it is essential to seek the guidance of an experienced lawyer to help them receive the settlement that they deserve.
Contacting a Lawyer for a Car Accident
If you have been injured in an accident because another driver failed to operate their vehicle effectively, you can file an injury claim. To do so, the first step is to contact a personal injury attorney to represent you in your claim.
Soon after your accident, you will probably receive phone calls from the insurance company of the at-fault driver. The most important thing we can tell you is that you should not speak to them about your case. They are doing everything they can to decrease the amount of money that they will pay you. The best thing to do is to hire a lawyer and let them take over the communication.
Depending on the cause of the accident, there may also be investigation required to make it clear that it was the other driver’s fault. You may also need to collect statements of witnesses and first-responders. This is something that a lawyer can take care of right after an accident, do so efficiently and effectively, build a stronger case for you.
