What to Do After a Long Beach Car Accident

The immediate aftermath of a car accident can be a confusing and stressful time. Here are some crucial steps to take if you’ve been involved in a Long Beach car accident:
  1. Ensure Safety: Check yourself and others for injuries. If anyone requires medical attention, call 911 immediately.
  2. Secure the Scene: If possible, turn on your hazard lights and move your vehicle to a safe location off the road to avoid further accidents.
  3. Gather Information: Exchange contact information with the other driver(s) involved, including names, phone numbers, and insurance details. If possible, take pictures of the damage to all vehicles involved and the surrounding accident scene.
  4. Report the Accident: File a police report, regardless of the severity of the accident. A police report will document the accident details and can be crucial evidence later.
  5. Seek Medical Attention: Even if you feel okay initially, get checked out by a doctor. Some injuries may not be immediately apparent.
  6. Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer: An experienced lawyer like those at Gaylord & Nantais can advise you on your legal rights and handle communication with insurance companies. Don’t speak to the insurance company before consulting an attorney.

FAQs

Long Beach Car Accident FAQs

it’s best not to speak to the other driver’s insurance company before consulting with a lawyer. Insurance companies may try to get you to make statements that could hurt your case. An attorney at Gaylord & Nantais can handle all communication with the insurance company on your behalf.
Medical bills are a significant concern after an accident. We can explore all options to ensure you receive necessary medical treatment. In some cases, your car insurance may cover medical expenses, and we can help navigate those processes.
The amount of compensation varies depending on the severity of your injuries, medical bills, lost wages, and other factors. Our lawyers will thoroughly assess your case to determine the maximum compensation you deserve.
California requires drivers to have minimum liability insurance. However, some drivers may be uninsured. We can explore all options to recover compensation, including your own uninsured motorist coverage or filing a lawsuit against the at-fault driver.
The length of your case depends on the specific circumstances. Our goal is to resolve your case as quickly and efficiently as possible. However, some cases may require litigation, which can take longer. We will keep you informed throughout the entire process.

I was lucky enough to have Mr. Nantais as my lawyer. I had spoken to several other workers' compensation lawyers before meeting with Mr. Nantais. Unlike the other lawyers, I found Mr. Nantais very easy to talk with right from the start. He understood what had happened to me with my work situation and showed compassion for my plight. What really impressed me was how well Mr. Nantais represented me when dealing with the opposing counsel. He did an excellent job advocating for my needs, and I was very happy with the case's outcome.
