Actions to take after an auto, truck or motorcycle accident
The Greensboro car accident lawyers at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban have helped countless auto, motorcycle and tractor-trailer truck accident victims by turning tragedy into legal victory through financial recovery from those responsible for their injuries. But to ensure the best possible outcome, we urge you to take the following steps immediately after your vehicle accident and as you recover.
What Greensboro car accident attorneys do at the scene
Before anything else, make sure you and your passengers are not in imminent danger of further injury by other motorists. Then, request medical assistance, if needed, and the aid of a police officer. It is important to get the following information from others who are involved, if possible:
- The full name of all drivers directly involved in the accident
- Their license numbers, registration, and insurance information
- The full names and contact information of any witnesses to the accident
- The full names and contact information of police, paramedics, and rescuers who respond to the accident
Write down the following details:
- Information about the location, including time of day, weather conditions, physical location, and skid marks
- Others who reported injuries and what happened to them
- Any individuals who stated that they were not hurt or expressed guilt for the accident
- Any individuals involved in the accident who said they plan to file a lawsuit
Contact a North Carolina auto accident lawyer at our firm immediately so that we may begin assisting you. We can evaluate your accident to determine who is responsible by investigating the scene, taking statements from witnesses and following up with your insurance company.

What to do after your vehicle accident
Engage the services of a skilled car accident lawyer in our Greensboro office — or one of our 12 other offices — so that we can begin to help you. Our caring attorneys can help you handle burdens such as dealing with insurance adjusters, taking care of your damaged property, and deciding upon medical care.
File a civil action
Our North Carolina car accident lawyers launch an injury lawsuit by filing a complaint against all involved parties, then collecting evidence, performing depositions, consulting with expert witnesses, and negotiating toward an out-of-court settlement agreement. This process can take as little as a few months but may take longer, depending upon the complexity of the case, the seriousness of your injuries, the attitude of defendants, and the availability of witnesses. Our aim is to resolve your case as quickly and cost effectively as possible. However challenging, we dedicate the proper resources to make sure that when the case is resolved, your best interests are served and your rights protected.
We work with determination during settlement negotiations to ensure the best possible financial outcome for you. When defense counsel is unwilling to make or accept a reasonable settlement offer, we fight aggressively for your right to fair compensation in court.
Tractor trailer truck accidents present special challenges
If you are injured due to an accident with a tractor-trailer, 18-wheeler, semi or other commercial truck, you may need to be especially careful not to fall for the enticements of trucking company insurance adjusters. They are known to urge victims injured in truck accidents to settle their cases early, before they have consulted an experienced Greensboro truck accident lawyer. Settling early this way almost guarantees that you will not be compensated properly, especially since the full extent of some injuries do not become apparent until months after an accident. Be sure to consult an attorney before signing anything presented to you by an insurance adjuster.
