Spokane auto accident lawyerIf you are involved in an automobile accident, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. After medical attention is received, you should be sure to collect all necessary information from other drivers, passengers and witnesses involved in your accident, including:
  • Names
  • Addresses
  • Phone numbers
  • Names of insurance companies
  • Names and information of witnesses
You should also document any personal injury that you have suffered and document the damage to your vehicle. You must never offer any type of statement to anyone other than the police officer writing up the accident report. You should never admit fault at the scene of an accident or afterwards to anyone, including the police. Keep in mind that anything you say in the aftermath of an accident, even if you are in shock, can be used against you later. Something you say at the scene of an accident or afterwards could even disqualify a potential car accident claim.

Determining Fault Determining who was at fault in any vehicle accident can be challenging because there are so many factors to consider. As experts in the law, a Spokane auto accident lawyer at our firm has the resources and knowledge necessary to determine the liable parties in your case quickly and successfully.
Statute of Limitations
A statute of limitations is the amount of time you have following your accident to file your claim. If you wait too long, you could lose your right to any financial compensation. In Washington, accident victims must file a personal injury claim within three years from the day of injury. Only an experienced Spokane auto accident lawyer like the ones at Craig Swapp & Associates can explain statute of limitations law for your area.
