How likely is a Buffalo car accident?

Posted: August 7, 2018

Your chances of being in a Buffalo car accident depends on many factors, including where you are driving (road, busy street, highway, interstate), weather conditions, road conditions and even your state of mind. According to the Insurance Information Institute, your “one-year odds” for dying in a car accident is one in about 9000.

Most Buffalo drivers practice good driving habits. Unfortunately, each time you drive your vehicle, you put yourself at risk for encountering a driver who operates a vehicle recklessly and without regard for the safety of others. If you have been injured by a negligent Buffalo driver, call William Mattar today to schedule a consultation appointment with a Buffalo car accident lawyer. We may be able to help you get the justice and compensation you deserve to rectify your damages.

What Should You Do After a Car Accident?

Because car crashes are unexpected and powerful, you probably won’t remember all aspects of an accident after that accident. Of course, always call the police immediately after a car crash. Law enforcement will arrive quickly, assess everyone’s injuries and request medical emergency technicians if necessary.

The police will make an accident report describing what exactly happened and name at-fault drivers in the report if they can be determined. If police are not sure who caused the accident, evidence will be collected and all those involved in the accident will be questioned. Eyewitnesses, if any, will also be asked what they saw before, during and after the accident.

Seriously injured drivers and/or their passengers should call a car crash lawyer as soon as possible to make a consultation appointment regarding compensation for damages.
