Determining Liability

Determining liability in personal injury cases is pivotal. It ascertains legal responsibility for the accident and ensuing injuries. Liability differs depending on the situation. Sometimes it is straightforward, like a driver running a red light causing a car crash. However, it can get intricate and may require a thorough inquiry to establish fault. This process involves in-depth examinations of accident scenes, evidence, and expert insights. Legal teams compile records, conduct interviews, and build persuasive cases. The goal is to ensure accountability for those at fault and secure rightful compensation for the injured parties.

What to Do After an Accident

Accidents can be sudden and overwhelming, leaving you feeling vulnerable. Knowing the right steps to take can protect your rights and lead to a successful recovery. Here is a straightforward guide on what to do after a personal injury:

  1. Prioritize Safety: First and foremost, ensure everyone’s safety. Call 911 immediately to report the incident. Provide accurate information about where it happened, the number of injured individuals, and follow the dispatcher’s instructions.
  2. Exchange Information: Collect information from everyone involved, including their names, birthdates, addresses, driver’s license details, vehicle information, and insurance information. Make sure the information is clear and correct.
  3. Document the Scene: Use your phone or camera to take pictures of everything at the accident scene. Capture the vehicles involved, any damage, where they are positioned, road conditions, traffic signs, and visible injuries. Take multiple angles and consider recording videos if possible; they can help reconstruct what happened.
  4. Get Witness Details: If there were witnesses, get their contact information. Ask them to describe what they saw and have them sign and date their statements. These statements can be essential for your case.
  5. Check for Cameras: Look around for surveillance cameras in the area. Many public places have them nowadays. Places like gas stations, stores, restaurants, businesses, and homes may have security cameras. If you find any, ask for copies of the footage.
  6. Seek Medical Attention: Regardless of how minor your injuries seem, see a doctor promptly. Sometimes, pain does not show up right away, and early medical evaluation ensures your health and documents your injuries.
  7. Avoid Social Media: Do not discuss the accident or your injuries on social media. Insurance companies and others may use your posts against you. Even with privacy settings, it is better to keep these details offline.
  8. Consult an Attorney: Before speaking with insurance companies or making official statements, reach out to Fielding Law at 833.88.SHARK for a free, confidential consultation.

Took care of us after our accident. Went above and beyond to check in and make sure we were ok. Great personal touch and service.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Fielding in the past, and I cannot recommend him and his team enough. They're true professionals from intake to close outs, and will make sure a difficult process goes as smoothly as possible. All-around great guy and one heck of an attorney.

Mia

As a fellow Arizona attorney, my interactions with Fielding Law was top notch. Both attorneys and support staff were friendly and helpful. Plus, their office in Tempe is brand new and very cool.

It was great to have Clark and his team in our corner. We were t-boned by someone that ran a red light. However, while we were being taken to the hospital, the other driver told the police that it was our fault. With things not looking good, Clark was able to get our side of the story reported to the police, deal with all the doctors and insurance people and get us a settlement. They went above and beyond what we thought was possible. Can’t imagine dealing with this nightmare without Clark and his team.
