REPRESENTING THE INJURED

The Law Offices of Christopher F. Earley wishes all of our past and present clients a safe, prosperous and healthy 2011. Thank you for being a client of our office. We truly appreciate you. Here is some free legal information that I wanted to pass onto each and every one of you as a courtesy of being a client of firm. Also, I have included some recent success stories we have achieved for some of our clients which we are very proud of.

SOME THINGS TO DO (AND SOME THINGS NOT TO DO) FOLLOWING AN AUTO ACCIDENT:

1) Call the police;

2) Tell the police officer(s) exactly how the accident occurred;

3) Be careful what you say to the other driver; keep things to an absolute minimum;

4) If you have a camera in your car, photograph the accident scene and damage to both vehicles (or as soon as practically possible);

5) Obtain medical treatment as soon as possible;

6) Contact your insurance company immediately to report the accident;

7) DO NOT talk with anyone who calls you from the other driver's insurance company;

8) Do not panic if the police report is inaccurate as to how the accident occurred;

9) Contact an attorney immediately if you were injured in the accident;

10) Keep records of all of your medical treatment.

HERE ARE SOME ELEMENS OF A SLIP AND FALL CASE:

1) Good photographs were taken which show the area of the slip and fall accident was negligently maintained;

2) There is an incident report documenting the accident;

3) Immediate medical attention is sought;

4) The injuries, as well as the amount of the medical bills, are substantial;

5) There is missed time from work following the accident;

6) There are witnesses to the accident;

7) The injury victim was not running, was not intoxicated, and was walking carefully when he/she slipped;

8) There is a surveillance video of the accident which does not hurt the injury victim's case;
