INJURED IN A CAR ACCIDENT?
What to do After an Auto Accident
Determine your safety, along with the safety of your passengers. If you or a passenger needs medical assistance, call a paramedic or 911 immediately or ask someone at the scene to do so.
2. Remove From Danger
Move yourself and vehicle out of the way, if possible, to the side of the road if it is a minor accident, out of traffic and where it is safer to collect information. Turn on your hazard and emergency lights. If your accident is severe, do not move your vehicle.
3. Contact The Police
It is important to report all car accidents. After you have made sure everyone is safe and removed from danger if possible, call the police. Answer all questions asked honestly, giving a complete description to the police with details included. Be sure to obtain a copy of the accident report when complete.
4. Collect Important Information
Obtain the name, address, phone number and drivers license of everyone involved in the accident. Taking photos of these items with your cell phone may be the easiest way of obtaining this information. Document license plate numbers, insurance companies, and policy numbers. Also, record the police officer's name and badge number.
5. Document The Scene
Using your smartphone, collect video and photo documentation of the scene, if safe to do so. Include damages, street marks, street signs, and directions that each vehicle was driving in.
6. Avoid Roadside Chatting
Be sure to wait for the police to arrive to mediate all conversations. All information and descriptions of the scene, scenario, and details should be communicated to the police to make a complete report, avoiding any confusion.
7. Call For Roadside Assistance
If your collision led to your car to not being able to move, call for a tow truck. Be sure to describe the scene and details to the tow truck company, so they are prepared upon arrival. Complete any instructions they give you.
8. Seek Legal Assistance
Contact Grigoryan Blum & Grigoryan, California auto accident lawyers, to discuss your case. It is important to pursue legal assistance to pursue your claim and deal with the complexities of insurance providers.
9. Have Your Attorney, Not You, File A Claim
Have your attorney contact your insurance provider, as well as the other insurance provider. Insurance companies love to take statements from the individuals themselves so as to tie them down to statements that may be difficult to amend later. Insurance companies also like to ask questions that are beneficial to their bottom line (paying as little as possible for a claim) and damaging to the claimant's rights.
Time Limit for Filing a Car Accident Lawsuit in California
You should always call the police at the scene of the incident. A police incident report will allow for an unbiased account of what happened and why. Police will also gather any evidence that an ordinary civilian is not trained to look for or collect, such as skid marks and witness statements.
In the case of an injury or death after a car accident, California law states that you must file a complaint in Court within 2 years of the collision. This may vary depending on the age of the person's injuries, the entity causing this injury, etc. You should contact a Pasadena car accident lawyer ASAP to be advised as to the applicable statute of limitations.

Frequently Asked Questions about Auto Accidents
Immediately! An injured party, after seeing a doctor in cases of emergencies, should contact an attorney as soon as possible, for many reasons. For one, an injured party should find out if he or she has rights under the law, and what steps need to be taken to preserve those rights. These rights may be compromised if the party speaks to the insurance company, who often have different interests than that of the injured party. It is crucial to speak to a qualified and experienced auto accident attorney at the earliest possible stage of your injury case.
You should hire an attorney to advise you of your rights, protect your rights, and guide you through the minefields of our complex California legal system. If a settlement is taking place, an attorney should be reviewing the settlement agreement, and making sure that the insurance company or their defense attorney is not taking advantage of you and your rights, which very often happens when we see individuals not represented by an attorney at the time of settlement.
Contingency Fee. We do not charge an upfront retainer fee or hourly rate. We charge a fee only if we are successful in obtaining a recovery for our clients, and only then. This is referred to as charging on a contingency fee basis, which is how a large majority of personal injury firms charge in California and the country.
We believe that word of mouth is the best way to choose a personal injury attorney. Ask your friends, family, and if that fails, research attorneys in your geographical area, and look at reviews. At GBG law, we focus on auto collision injuries, pedestrian collisions, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, trip and fall accidents, truck accidents, Uber and Lyft accidents, and wrongful death.
The monetary sum that clients receive from their personal injury case varies from case to case depending on a number of factors including the following: the type of injury, the seriousness of the injury, who the responsible or at-fault-party is, if they have insurance, if you as the injured party has applicable insurance, the jurisdiction of your case, among other factors.
The length of a personal injury case varies from case to case. Some cases can take a few weeks, whereas other cases can take a few years. An experienced attorney at GBG can give you a better estimate after reviewing the facts of your case during a Complimentary Consultation.
