Car accidents have caused life-altering experiences for many in Stockton, California. Because of the negligence of another person or of a business, a person can end up with injuries that cause tremendous pain, permanent damage and result in a personal injury claim.
In Stockton and San Joaquin County, statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration clearly demonstrate that traffic accidents remain a primary public safety issue. Bicycle, car, pedestrian, motorcycle, and semi-truck accidents are all common occurrences, even though improvements in vehicle safety features, road design, bicycle, and pedestrian walkways and traffic signs have been made over the years.
When to Seek Legal Help from Stockton Personal Injury Attorneys?
After an accident, there are numerous important issues that should be dealt with quickly.

California law establishes specific legal rights for persons who have been harmed due to the negligence of someone else.

Even if you’ve been involved in another accident recently you may not be completely familiar with what you should do and how complicated the process can be. Because it’s not uncommon to become disorientation after an injury accident, although it may seem obvious, it’s important to make certain that you or your passengers are not seriously hurt. Follow these steps:
- Get medical attention as quickly as possible.
- If you are able, call the police. If the police won’t come submit a police report online or in person.
- Exchange insurance information with the other driver. However, do not discuss the accident with them or admit fault.
- Always take photos of the scene and the damage as this may be important later.
- If there are witnesses that saw the accident get their contact information.
