California Storefront Accident Attorneys
Storefront Crashes & How to Handle Them
According to the Storefront Safety Council, California is the second leading state in car accidents into public, commercial, and retail buildings. These accidents injure thousands of Americans every year and cost the insurance industry hundreds of millions of dollars annually. Property damage is usually exceedingly expensive and the total costs for storefront accidents can run unimaginably high.
If you have been injured in a storefront car accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact our California car accident attorneys before accepting any insurance that may be offered to you. Insurance companies are looking out for their own profit and will most likely offer you a settlement far below what you deserve. We offer a completely free case evaluation and we only take personal injury cases on contingency, so you have nothing to lose by speaking with us first.

What to Do Following a Storefront Car Accident
The first and most important thing to do immediately following any car accident is to make sure you are safe and uninjured. After you have confirmed you are alright, check the surrounding environment for any potential hazards and look to see if the other parties involved are safe as well. This will most likely be a stressful time for you and you may be tightly wound. Make sure to calm down, take deep breaths, and call the police.
While you wait for the police to arrive and document the scene of the accident, document the scene yourself, too. Exchange your driver’s license and insurance information with any other involved parties in case you need them in the future. Take notes and photograph as much as you can. Clear photographs may prove to be essential in determining liability later on. Take note of any injuries you may have sustained and document them over time, as their condition may worsen.
Go to a Doctor
When the police are done and you have finished documenting the scene, seek medical attention. Even if you do not feel affected by the accident, you may have sustained an injury that could gradually worsen over time. Concussions and damage to internal organs often take longer to notice due to their lack of visibility. The doctor or other medical professional will be able to document your injury thoroughly. Documentation of your injuries and their changes over time could be extremely useful in future legal proceedings.
