The Brown Firm, located in Savannah, Georgia, is a legal firm comprised of personal injury attorneys. The firm recently announced that they have a new blog post regarding passenger rights after a car accident. The firm states that the post can be very helpful in advising those injured in a car accident on what they need to do next in terms of caring for themselves and getting their medical bills paid.
Harry Brown Jr, DC, JD, founder of the firm says, “If you are involved in an automobile accident, and particularly if you are an innocent passenger in that accident, they you need to know what to do. You need to know who is going to pay your medical bills and potentially reimburse you for the time that you have to take off from work, depending on the severity of your injuries. We published this latest blog post in an effort to help consumers to better understand what they need to do when they are victims of an automobile accident.”
Brown says that consumers need to be aware of their rights when they are passengers in someone else’s vehicles. He says that the steps that must be taken after an accident happens are crucial and that the firm’s latest blog post outlines these steps in fine detail so that consumers will know exactly what they should do to protect themselves in these situations. Brown says that one of the first things that accident victims need to do is to contact and speak with the experienced Savannah personal injury lawyers at The Brown Firm.
“You are likely to be disoriented, confused and even scared of what is going to happen,” says Brown. “Our experienced attorneys can help you to sort everything out, get you on the right track to having your situation handled and give you peace of mind with regards to getting those medical bills paid and keeping you compensated while you are off of work during the healing process.”
Brown says that seeking medical attention is the first and most important thing that needs to be done. He says that regardless of whether or not the passenger feels that they have been seriously injured, seeking medical attention is critical. There could be underlying injuries that may not show up for days or even weeks after the accident. Brown says that it is crucial that those involved in any accident seek medical attention first and foremost.
The attorney says that the second thing that passengers need to do is to determine fault and this is where an experienced attorney can help. He says that the average consumer may not know how to correctly determine fault and that even if a police report is filled out, there may be questions about the reason for the accident. The fault could lie with another driver in another vehicle or in the case of many texting and driving accidents in the US, the fault lies with the driver of the vehicle in which the injured is a passenger. In these cases, Brown says that the fault clearly lies with the driver who is breaking the law by texting and driving. There are a number of cases every day in which drivers carelessly text while they are operating a vehicle and despite the fact that this is illegal, many still do it. Brown says that in these cases, it is important to prove that the operator of the vehicle was distracted and that this can be difficult. He says that only an attorney who is experienced in these types of cases will know what to do to ensure that the passenger receives the compensation to which he or she is entitled under the law.
The Georgia based legal firm says that there are insurance claim forms and other information that will need to be filled out and filed and states that insurance companies may try to prove that the accident was not the fault of the driver in order to avoid having to pay compensation to passengers. Brown says that the reason for the new blog post is to let those passengers know that there is something that they can do to be compensated for their injuries and to have those medical bills covered. He says that it all begins with a call to a qualified attorney and that anyone who has been involved in an accident should contact the firm immediately. Those interested can read the blog post in its entirety on the law firm’s official website.
