GREENSBORO, NC, March 17, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Personal injury law firm Hayes Law announced on Wednesday the release of original visual content providing a checklist to help plaintiffs stay safe and protect their rights after an accident. The "What to Do When You've Been in an Auto Accident
" infographic is available for free on the firm's blog.
"Many clients don't realize how important it is to be proactive in preserving the integrity of their case, starting at the scene of the accident," said Marcus Hayes, principal attorney at Hayes Law. "By creating a memorable visual checklist, our firm hopes to grab people's attention so our five-point checklist stands out in their minds in the event of a crash."
The Hayes Law infographic describes the following five steps to take after an accident:
1. Make sure everyone is safe
2. Document the accident
3. Gather information
4. Call the proper authorities
5. Contact an experienced auto accident lawyer
Drivers know the importance of assessing injuries, exchanging insurance information and calling the police in the event of a crash. However, the infographic reveals that these steps are more than just practical for the purposes of an insurance claim - they are also pivotal for preserving the facts in a potential personal injury claim.
From medical records to written and photographic records of the scene to interviews with witnesses, Hayes said that all of these factors can make the difference between recovering fair compensation in an auto accident lawsuit and a struggle with the liable driver's insurance company.
"Legal guidance is the cornerstone of Hayes Law," he said. "Content like our new infographic makes it possible for us to guide prospective clients with educational material in an eye-catching format so they can act accordingly when it is often most difficult to do so: in the immediate aftermath of a car accident."
