Car Accidents

Consult with a Personal Injury Lawyer after your car accident in New Bedford, Fall River or Taunton, MA

A car accident is a frightening and traumatic experience and can cause a lot of stress for all those involved.  Getting your car fixed, seeking medical treatment and missing time from school or work can cause overwhelming anxiety and uncertainty in your life and in the lives of your loved ones.  The very last thing you should have to face is the additional aggravation of dealing with insurance companies.  At Dussault and Gomes PC, we will alleviate your stress by working with you to navigate the complicated and frustrating process of getting you the financial compensation to which you are entitled.

What should you do after an CAR ACCIDENT?

•   Call the police and file a car accident report.  In filing this report, you are able to properly document the facts as soon as the car accident happens leaving less room for error later down the  line.
•   If hurt, seek medical care.  Call an ambulance if needed and visit the emergency room if necessary.  It is important to seek care as some injuries may not be immediately apparent at the scene of your car accident.
•   Do not leave the scene of the accident until you have all necessary contact information, including the information of witnesses.
