If you were in an auto accident, stay calm and follow these tips... 

These Simple Steps Can Protect Your Rights

Speak to Other Drivers

Do not leave the scene of an accident without speaking to those involved or the authorities. Leaving the scene can lead to you being charged with a hit and run. If possible, move your vehicle to a safe location.

Contact the Police

We highly recommend contacting the police, even after a minor incident. Obtaining an official report from the officer on the scene can help you collect compensation from your insurance. In addition, ensure anyone injured receives the assistance they need.

Exchange Information

Speak to all of the other drivers involved and collect their complete insurance and contact information. Also, make sure to take down the names and contacts for anyone who witnessed the accident.

Gather Evidence

Take detailed photos or videos of your injuries as well as the damage present on all the vehicles involved. If you can do so safely, you should also take pictures of the scene of the accident.

Do Not Apologize

Admitting fault in any way, including a simple apology, which can be misconstrued and held against you later. You should also avoid stating that you are not injured, in case something arises in the following days or weeks.

Understanding the cause of your auto accident can help your case...

Common Causes of Motor Vehicle Accidents Include:

Distracted woman driving
Distracted Driving

Talking on the phone, eating, or changing the radio can all lead to a crash and result in serious injuries.

Driver smoking joint
Drugs or Alcohol

Driving under the influence is a leading cause of accidents and places fault with the intoxicated driver.

Deployed air bag
Auto Defects

In some cases, a fault in the design or manufacturing of a vehicle's parts can lead to a crash.

Road Conditions

Poorly maintained roads can be highly dangerous and mean those in charge of maintenance are liable.

Hands gripping truck's steering wheel
Lack of Training or Maintenance

When it comes to large trucks, poor training or lack of vehicle maintenance can result in serious injury.

Pinpointing the Cause Shapes How We Handle Your Case

In order to have a case for an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit, an individual or organization must have failed to act with proper care. Determining the cause of a vehicle accident is not always straightforward.

Our team at Chanfrau & Chanfrau will thoroughly investigate every aspect of your auto accident to identify who was responsible for the incident. We can also call on expert testimony to hold the party accountable for negligence.

There are two main routes for pursuing compensation...

Insurance Claim

For most traffic accidents, your insurance company will provide coverage for medical bills and other expenses. However, your provider may not offer you a fair settlement. Hiring an auto accident attorney from Chanfrau & Chanfrau can ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.


In cases where your insurance company refuses to provide the level of compensation you need, you may have the right to pursue a lawsuit. Our attorneys can investigate your case and provide legal representation to hold those responsible for your injuries accountable for their actions.

Bicycle Accidents

A bicyclist's exposure makes him or her particularly vulnerable to serious injury, or even death. In the event of a collision, a car or truck driver's oversight often constitutes negligence, and a bike rider who is harmed by carelessness deserves compensation.
