More than 37,000 people die in road crashes each year in the United States, with an additional 2.35 million injured or disabled. Our Terre Haute personal injury attorneys can represent clients who were harmed in car accidents.
McGlone Law employs a full-time investigator to investigate the incident and determine who is responsible for your injuries. In cases where the other driver is not negligent or reckless, other factors may play a part in the accident. These could include mechanical failure of the car, improperly maintained roads, malfunction of traffic signals, or driving into a construction zone that was not properly blocked off.
If your injuries allow, the most important thing to do after an accident is to write down the information of witnesses and take pictures of the scene if possible. It is also important to fill out a police report, which can be valuable evidence if your case goes to court. In addition, you should go to a hospital as soon as possible for treatment, even if your injuries are minor, and should continue keeping appointments for as long as necessary. These medical records provide strong support for your claim, so it is important not to postpone or refuse treatment.
Everyone who operates a motor vehicle is required to act with reasonable care while driving. In cases of negligence, we follow a three-step process to support your claim in court. We prove that the other driver acted with negligence, then we prove that the negligence caused the accident, and finally we prove that the accident caused your injuries. With 80 years of combined experience, the Terre Haute car accident lawyers at McGlone Law can represent you from the first consultation until your case is resolved.
