Along with the many historic sites and homes, scenic roads, cultural attractions, and entertainment events, Fairview Heights see a lot of traffic, and that traffic contributes to numerous accidents every day. While some accidents cause very little damage, some crashes cause life-altering injuries and thousands of dollars in damages to vehicles; of course, that is not considering the mental and emotional side effects of involvement in these types of jarring, devastating accidents. Any time you drive, you could get in an accident, regardless of the level of caution and defensive driving your practice. Very few drivers consider the possibility of having a serious crash any time they get in their car, truck, minivan, or motorcycle. There are so many reasons for accidents, including but not limited to poor road conditions, inclement weather, and negligent drivers.

Some Bits of Advice for Fairview Heights
One of the first pieces of advice we give our new clients who have been involved in a car accident of any kind is to refrain from making statements such as “I’m sorry” to any other drivers involved in the crash as these types of statements may lead them – or a jury of your peers – to think that you were admitting fault or some level of guilt.
Another piece of advice we typically give clients is to talk to us before talking to an insurance agent. If an insurance adjuster contacts you and makes an offer to settle your case out of court, it is not likely that their offer will be the best you could get if you hire an attorney and take the case to court. Insurance agencies want to make every effort to preserve themselves and save money by giving you as little as possible. They know that if they contact you soon after the accident to offer a settlement, you are in a vulnerable position: You might be worried about your injuries and a potential legal battle costing you and your family too much time, money, and energy.
