"Some intersections in Metro Vancouver are simply dangerous, like the Willingdon interchange in Burnaby where almost 2,200 collisions occurred in just 5 years," reveals personal injury lawyer, Kelly Routley, who heads the car crash lawyers in the renowned law firm. "These incidents often lead to legal complications involving local law enforcement and insurance companies, especially since nearly 900 of the collisions over the last 5 years involved physical injuries."
For people involved in car accidents, surviving a car crash is just the first hurdle that must be handled following the incident. "There will be a lot of finger pointing afterwards," said Fraser Valley lawyer, Mr. Routley, "medical bills must be dealt with, wages may be lost, and there's a lot of pain and suffering. The insurance company may also become much more hesitant in paying claims. They may attempt to accelerate the claim settlement process and prevent people from getting what they deserve, or they may even entice people to wrongfully admit blame."
It is for these reasons that Vancouver drivers call Routley & Company Lawyers in the immediate aftermath of a car accident. The car crash lawyers can then advise them on what to do for every step of the way after the incident.
"The standard advice for potential clients is that while they should help any injured people in any way they can, their vehicle shouldn't be moved unless it is impeding traffic," added Mr. Routley, "they should also make sure that they say nothing about their own fault regarding the car crash. Instead, they should call on our Abbotsford car accident law firm, Routley & Company Lawyers, for a consultation, especially if someone has been injured.
Potential clients should also exchange crucial info with all the drivers involved. The info should include everyone's names, addresses, and insurance details."
Potential clients should also canvas the people in the street, and get the names and addresses of as many witnesses as possible. "This is very important, especially if the insurance company attempts to blame them as the cause of the accident," said Abbotsford lawyer Mr. Routley, "detailed notes about the accident should also be written down so that they won't be forgotten. They should also take numerous photos of the damage to the vehicle, which should be easy considering the number of people with cellphone cameras."
