Atlanta personal injury lawyer, Attorney John Foy’s quick car accident checklist.
If you’ve been in a car accident, keep in mind these 10 things you should do:
1. If possible, move vehicle out of the way of traffic to a safer location and then turn the ignition off
2. Stay calm. Do not become angry or too upset to assess the situation or think through what needs to be done.
3. Do not admit to fault or agree to pay damages nor sign any papers.
4. Call the police or applicable law enforcement. You’ll need a copy of the accident report that the law enforcement officer writes about your accident to provide to the insurance company.
5. Check and take note of your own and other’s injuries. Also take note of any intoxication.
6. Take pictures. Take pictures of your vehicle, any other vehicles involved and the accident scene while remaining safe from traffic.
7. Exchange information. You’ll need the other driver’s name, address, phone number, email address, insurance company, policy number, driver’s license number, license plate number, and their vehicle type.
8. Call an experience attorney as soon as is possible to safely do so.
9. Obtain a copy of your auto insurance policy or call your insurance company representative or agent to verify the coverage you have on your policy.
10. Be ready to fight for your rights. The steps taken during the hours, days and weeks after a car accident can be time consuming but they should be followed carefully under the assistance and advice of an attorney.

It sounds counter-intuitive, but the key to settling personal injury cases for more money is a car accident attorney’s ability try such cases in Michigan courts. This is according to Steven Gursten, partner of Michigan Auto Law, a leading law firm in the state exclusively handling car, truck and motorcycle accident personal injury cases for more than 50 years.
In this video, Gursten explains how No-Fault insurance companies and defense lawyers know which car accident attorneys have outstanding trial records. This determines whether a personal injury victim will receive a fair settlement offer from the insurance company (that does not want to face a good car accident attorney in court) or a very low settlement offer. Gursten insists that people suffering personal injuries from car accidents must research their prospective attorney’s trial record — as it makes a huge difference between a mediocre settlement and an outstanding one.

Here’s what Gursten has to say: “Hi I’m Steve Gursten, and this is my first tip on how to settle cases for more money for personal injury lawyers and car accident lawyers. This is taken from my seminar that I did for the Michigan Association for Justice in June 2010. The most important tip to settle cases for more money is that you have to try cases.
This is because some insurance companies will make very unreasonable settlement offers and play hardball because they want to see what a personal injury lawyer will do. With the computers and verdict reporting software that’s out there, it’s really easy for an insurance company or a trucking company to do a verdict search on a lawyer and a law firm, to find out about that lawyer’s reputation, and his willingness to take cases to trial. So they can find out pretty quickly if it’s been 15 years since that lawyer has tried a case. From that, the insurance companies know whether to play hardball, or whether they should settle faster and for more money. And if a lawyer doesn’t take cases to trial, or have a reputation for being willing to take cases to trial, that insurance company knows that it can always settle that case cheap.
So if you’re a client out there, and you’re researching a potential lawyer to represent you, the most important thing for you to know is really, a firm’s trial reputation. The insurance industry knows it. It’s really the key to getting a better settlement and a faster settlement. If the insurance company and the people on the other side already have that information, I guess the question is, “Shouldn’t you also?””

I’m Tulin Karasay MyTV9 Star and thanks to our good friends at Salomone and Morelli we’re hear today with some spring safety driving tips. As the seasons change, so do road conditions, prepare your vehicle for the spring by getting new windshield wipers and having your tires properly inflated. Doing so can reduce the damage from potholes and uneven pavement caused by harsh winter weather. Stay safe and enjoy this spring with these tips from Salomone and Morelli.
Even after taking safety precautions you may still get into an accident. Then you and whoever hurt you can agree upon damages through insurance settlements or by other methods. But many times, you won’t completely get everything that is rightfully owed to you. For example, insurance companies will not reimburse you for the time you have lost from work, your medical bills, and the pain and suffering you have faced because of another person’s wrong doing. It’s important to know that when you work with a personal injury lawyer, like the Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone and Morelli, you get what is owed to you.
