Six Easy Steps to Take after an Auto Accident
WHAT TO DO AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT INJURY
Stay on the Scene
Even if the accident is minor, you should stop and move vehicles out of traffic. Do not leave the scene until you speak with others involved.
If you suspect someone is injured, call an ambulance. You should also call the police, even for a minor accident.
Gather contact and insurance information from the other individuals involved in the accident. If possible, get the contact info for eyewitnesses, as well.
If it is safe to do so, take pictures of all vehicles involved and the accident scene. These photos can be used as evidence later.
Avoid Admitting Fault
While you should be polite, do not apologize or tell anyone it was your fault, even if you think it was. A casual apology can be seen as an admission of guilt.
Contact an Attorney
Do not sign anything without discussing your case with an attorney first. Our team can protect your rights and ensure you receive a fair settlement.
WE ARE HERE FOR YOU
After a motor vehicle accident, you need a team that will stand by you. Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton is dedicated to helping people rebuild their lives after a serious accident.
Common Auto Accidents
Due to the high number of cars on the road, these types of accidents happen frequently. The aftermath of a car accident is often expensive. Our attorneys can help you pursue damages from either a negligent or drunk driver, or your insurance company.
The massive size and weight of trucks means there is a much greater risk of life-changing or fatal injuries. Our attorneys can help you navigate the complex causes and liability issues associated with truck accidents to ensure you receive what you deserve.
An accident on a motorcycle can result in catastrophic, life-altering injuries for motorcyclists. Since PIP is not available for recreational vehicles, legal claims are often the only source of compensation for motorcyclists injured in an accident.
What Type of Vehicles WERE INVOLVED?
Accidents involving different types of vehicles are handled differently. For example, an accident involving a UTA bus may be much more complex than a single-car accident.
At Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton, we can help with any type of motor vehicle accident, including:
But a lot more is involved in your case than the type of vehicle.

What Was The Cause Your Accident?
Determining the cause of your accident can help build a strong case for compensation. For example, if your accident was caused by a defective part on your vehicle or another similar issue, you may have a case against the manufacturer or another entity.
Some causes of auto accidents we see regularly include:
RESPONSIVE AND PROFESSIONAL
“Brett Boulton handled my son’s auto accident claim. The insurance company played hardball and we had to file a lawsuit before the case settled, but Brett and his staff were responsive and professional throughout. We were very happy with Brett’s handling of the claim and with the end result.”
Who Was Driving?
Passengers in a vehicle often sustain serious injuries in an auto accident. However, figuring out how to receive proper coverage can be difficult as the passenger.
In many cases, the driver is a family member or friend. You may hesitate to file a claim because you do not want to offend or cause trouble.
If you were injured as the passenger of a vehicle, you do not have to sue the driver, though you may have the right. You can file a claim under their insurance or the insurance of another driver involved in the accident.
At Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton, we are dedicated to helping injured individuals receive the compensation they deserve. We can help you understand your rightsand determine the right course of action for your unique situation.
