In Los Angeles County, a traffic accident occurs every 6 seconds.  The reality is that if you drive in Los Angeles County, at some time you or someone you love will be in a car accident.

We hope that if you’re in an accident you escape unharmed, but we know that is often not the case.  Many car accidents result in serious and sometimes catastrophic injuries.  If you or someone you love is in a car accident, you need the best professional help you can get.  You need Brown, Brown & Brown.

Brown, Brown & Brown has a long history of representing the victims of car accidents.  We handle accidents in Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, and Riverside counties.

What Should You Do if You’re In An Accident?

If you are involved in a car accident, the first thing to do is check to see if anyone is hurt.  Don’t waste valuable time if someone is hurt.  Call 911.  If possible, drive your car to the side of road.  Do not leave your car unless it is safe to do so.

Cautiously approach the other cars in the accident.  Check for injuries in the other car.  Call 911 if anyone is injured.  Stay calm.  Exchange names, driver’s license numbers, addresses, insurance policy information, and license plate numbers.  Do not admit fault.

It’s a good idea to take photographs of the cars involved and the accident scene.  Keep a disposable camera in your glove compartment for this purpose or use your cell phone.

Call the police to report the accident.

After The Accident – If You’re Hurt, See A Doctor

Often people don’t realize they’ve been hurt until some time after the accident.  Symptoms of injury may include headache, numbness, tingling, neck pain, back pain, stiffness, and soreness.  If you are experiencing any symptoms from the car accident, go to your medical doctor.  Only a medical doctor is appropriate to diagnose your injuries and prescribe proper treatment.  Follow your doctor’s advice.

Call Brown, Brown & Brown

Just like you need a doctor to take care of your physical injuries, you need Brown, Brown & Brown to take care of your legal rights.  We will see that you receive your rightful compensation for your injuries, your lost work, and your other damages.

After an accident, your job is to take care of yourself and get better. You can do that if you hire an experienced professional to handle your legal claim, such as Brown, Brown & Brown.

What you Shouldn’t Do

If you were hurt in accident that was caused by another driver, that driver’s insurance company may rush in to try to minimize your recovery.  Do not give a statement.  Do not settle your bodily injury claim without a lawyer.  The at fault driver‘s insurance company is not trying to settle with you for a fair amount.  It is trying to limit the amount you receive.  That is its duty to its shareholders.

Protect yourself and your loved ones by calling Brown, Brown & Brown if you or a loved one is hurt in a car accident.  Make sure you receive what you deserve.

What Rights Do You Have In A Car Accident?

In California, every person is responsible for injuries caused by his or her failure to act reasonably.  This is called negligence.  In a car accident, a person is responsible for the accident if he or she failed to act reasonably.  For example, if a person is going too fast for the traffic and rear ends the car in front of him, that is negligence.  If a driver is distracted by his cell phone and runs a red light, that is negligence.   Make sure you receive what you deserve.
