Big Rig Truck Flips Over

The other day I was coming home from work only to find the road blocked by a big rig that was over on its side. We all know how big rig drivers often get paid by the mile so they are often in a hurry. This was in an industrial area where police are few and far between. This truck just turned the corner too fast and smashed up his truck. If you have been in an auto or truck accident and need to help to find your way through the insurance company maze call Big Rig Injury Attorney Todd Bissell.

Wet Roads Can Cause Injury Accidents

As the rainy season approaches in the Sacramento metro area it is good to remember that after the first rain the roads can be very slick. Oil and fluids from cars and trucks can build up over time on the highways and byways around the greater Sacramento area. The first rains loosen this layer of dirt, grit and oily substances and makes it very hard to drive. This is when many rain related auto accidents happen with injuries and in some cases death. If you have been involved in an auto accident with injuries or deaths injury attorney Todd Bissell Law Office will review your case at no charge.

The 10 Biggest Mistakes You Can Make After A Car Accident:

3. FAIL TO COLLECT EVIDENCE AT THE ACCIDENT SCENE. Don't assume that the police will talk to every witness or that all of the witnesses will wait around for the police to show up. If you are able, write down the names, addresses and telephone numbers of all witnesses who stopped to assist you. Also take a few photos with your cell phone if you are able. Skid marks, collision debris in the road, and damage to the other car are often hard to get and easily lost if not captured right away. 10 Biggest Mistakes

A wrong-way driver caused a six-vehicle smashup on Highway 99 on Saturday night that sent seven people to the hospital and closed the northbound lanes for about two hours.

The California Highway Patrol said the driver was under the influence of alcohol as he drove south in the northbound lanes. His 2001 Chevrolet Silverado hit an oncoming 2003 Lexus and rolled multiple times, striking several vehicles. Read More

Mistake #4. Tell The Other Driver That You Are "Okay"

Even if the other driver is very nice, and appologetic, do not tell him or her that you are Okay.  Tell them of any complaints that you have no matter how small, or don't talk to them at all if you can get their contact information from the police or otherwise.  Tell them if you are "shaken up" or have a headache or feel stiff.  Any of those is better than telling them that you are fine when you are not.  Anything you say is admissible against you.  If you report that you are "Ok" or "not hurt" that is the first thing that the other driver will report to his/her insurance company, and that is a statement that you will hear them testify at trial that you said.  Many soft-tissues swell over night after an accident, and you may feel awful the next morning after an accident that you thought did not injure you.
