Episode 16: Should I call the cops when I am in a fender bender?
For this episode of the Breaking Down The Law Podcast we're joined by Donald Garcia , a personal injury lawyer in Los Angeles, California. Who has over 20 years of experience. He is joined by Breaking Down The Law Podcast host, Ashley Rodriguez.
During today’s episode we’ll be asking Donald all about fender benders. Having worked for insurance companies for several years, after graduation from law school, Donald dedicated his career to pursuing the rights of those who suffered personal injuries at the hand of another.
- There is no definition of a fender bender. You have no idea how bad the damage of your car or truck is because you can not see everything that a mechanic would see.
- You might think you feel okay but you are not a doctor. When you call the police to get them there it’s okay to say you don’t know and get the police to the scene of the accident and get checked out.
- Then follow the exact procedures of an accident. Make sure you take photos and videos. Learn more about the exact procedures to take after an accident.
- If the police do not come for any reason and you don’t get a police report, make sure you go and file a counter report that you were in a car accident
- Witnesses are important. If you think someone is a witness make sure you ask them if they saw anything? If they did see the accident make sure you get their name, number, DL.
Donald discusses these points and so many more, so we hope you’ll join us for this episode! You can learn more about Donald by visiting him online at www.attorneyguss.com.
