The following 4 steps after a fatal car accident or a car crash with traumatic injuries is absolutely critical to bringing a product liability lawsuit against the car maker for a safety defect. Call auto safety expert and car accident lawyer Todd Tracy if you have any questions. These steps are critical to financial recovery.
Hey, this is Todd Tracy from the Tracy Law Firm in Dallas, Texas and I’m here with another Todd Talks.
Today I want to talk to you about tips for victims when you’ve been involved in a catastrophic injury or wrongful death, accident, and there are some tips that are very important.
For example, the first thing you need to do is you need to secure the vehicle. Now, what do I mean by secure the vehicle? You want to make certain that you know where the vehicle is and you want to make certain that you do not settle your property damage because I will tell you, you cannot have a vehicle defect case without the vehicle. You have to have the vehicle, number one.
Number three, do not give any recorded statements. The insurance company is going to be calling for whoever caused the accident. Do not give a recorded statement until you’ve talked to a lawyer.
Lastly, if someone that has caused the accident was drunk or if criminal charges had been filed against them, do not give a victim impact statement because that can potentially destroy any case you may have against the vehicle manufacturer.
This is Todd Tracy with today’s Todd Talks.
If you, a family member, or friend have suffered a traumatic car accident injury or they were killed in an auto accident, there may be grounds for a product liability lawsuit against the car maker. The victim’s or family members of the deceased person may be entitled to significantly more money in damages than just a negligence case about the cause of the accident.
The Tracy Law Firm focuses on “Who Caused The Traumatic Car Accident Injuries or Death” — not who caused the accident.
Whether you were at fault or not in the cause of the accident, car companies are required by federal motor vehicle safety standards to make vehicles that will protect the driver and passengers from catastrophic injuries or death.
