Yardley Automobile Accident Attorney

Yardley automobile accident attorney John M. Kenney knows that the moments after you have been involved in an automobile accident may be confusing, frightening, and disorienting. You might even be unconscious for a while or semi-conscious and physically unable to communicate. It may be difficult to stay calm and make good decisions and everyone's emotions will be running high. Depending on the severity of the accident, you may be called upon to perform several actions that will affect other people's lives as well as your own. After remaining at the scene of the accident and administering first aid if necessary to others involved in the accident, you are expected to call the police at 911 and also to request an ambulance.

If you have a minor accident, one where no one is hurt, you need to exchange names, email addresses, phone numbers, physical addresses, drivers' license numbers, license plate numbers, and basic insurance information of all drivers involved. If you have your smartphone camera handy, take a picture of the other driver's license, registration and insurance card. You should also be ready to provide this information to the other party. If you are unable to write these things down just take a snapshot of the other party's documents with your smartphone's camera.

While exchanging basic pertinent information is required, you do not have to answer any questions that are to you by the other driver, his insurance company or the police. In all situations, do not apologize for anything and do not admit that you made a driving mistake. Let the police sort out what happened and you should make your first call to your Yardley automobile accident attorney. Let Yardley automobile accident attorney John M. Kenney do the talking for you.

Witnesses
If there are witnesses to the accident, get their names and email addresses as soon as possible. Nearby residents that hear the collision may come out of their house so you could ask them if there have been other accidents at this location.

Dealing With Your Insurance Company
You can certainly talk to your insurance adjuster, but remember, they don't work for you. Their loyalty is to the insurance company that signs their paycheck. Your own insurance adjuster will try to get you to make incriminating statements to limit the amount of money that they must pay you. It is a much better idea to let your automobile accident lawyer do all of the talking for you. Just refer them to your Yardley automobile accident attorney John Kenney.

The immediate aftermath of an automobile accident can be harrowing and confusing. Just remember to call 911 and then call our automobile accident law firm to represent you. We will fight to get you the highest possible settlement and we will prevent you from mistakenly incriminating yourself.
