Tips if you suffer accident or injury

If you have been involved in any type of accident, it is important for you to immediately consult with your attorney. Do not give a signed or recorded statement to anyone, including your own insurance company. Consult with your lawyer before you give a statement since recorded statements are routinely disclosed to all other parties in a lawsuit. You can get a free consultation at Liss and Marion, by calling 215-665-1500.

An attorney can advise you of your rights so that you are aware of all issues before giving a statement. Insurance companies have investigators who immediately investigate accidents. You too should immediately consult with your lawyers since any delay may put you and your attorney at a disadvantage.

It becomes harder to prove your claims if your lawyer does not have an opportunity to preserve evidence, obtain photo graphs and/or get witness statements. There are also time limitations called “Statutes of Limitations”. If you wait too long and the Statute of Limitations deadline passes, you will be forever barred from bringing your claim. The Court will dismiss the claim, even if it is filed just one day late.

Call Liss & Marion immediately if you are involved in an accident. 215-665-1500.  There is no charge for the initial consultation. The firm’s attorneys will answer all of your questions and help you to protect your legal rights.

The following advice is crucial when in a motor vehicle accident.

Often times after an accident has occurred, the police do not ask enough questions and accident victims are overwhelmed and in a state of panic. In these times, we must be our own advocates and remember to advise the 911 operator and the Philadelphia Police of any injury at the scene of an accident. Otherwise, the police will not make an accident report at the scene. Remember to tell the police if you have suffered any injuries!
