Frequently Asked Questions About Fatal Car Accidents
What Should I Do Immediately After a Deadly Car Accident?
- The sooner you contact and retain an experienced attorney, the better your chances of recovering full and fair compensation for your losses. The longer you wait, the greater the risk that evidence will get lost or compromised, or that witnesses will die, move away, or start to forget what they saw.
- The more evidence you can gather immediately after the accident, the better. Take pictures of everything, using your cell phone camera, if necessary. Get contact information from everyone involved in the accident, as well as all witnesses.
