THE WALLACE PROCESS
First Steps after an Auto Accident
After an auto accident, the very first thing you need to do is move to a safe area. Check to see if anyone else involved has been injured. Try to record as many details as possible about the scene. Take pictures of the accident scene and get the names and contact information of any witnesses.
If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, getting medical attention needs to be your top priority. Even if you think you’re okay, it’s still a good idea to get checked by a doctor. The rush of adrenaline that comes after an auto accident can make it hard to judge the severity of your injuries. It’s also important to remember that injuries caused by auto accidents have symptoms that take time to show.
Report Your Accident
Under California law, auto accidents need to be reported within 24 hours to the California Highway Patrol or the police department in the city where the accident occurred. Accidents resulting in injury or death also need to be reported to the California DMV within 10 days of the accident. Even if you aren’t at fault for an accident, you should also report the accident to your auto insurance company as soon as possible.

Auto Accident Cases
If you were injured in an auto accident, you may be able to collect damages even if you were partially at fault for the accident. In the state of California, there are comparative negligence laws that cover auto accident cases. For example, if a person is found to be 50% at fault for a car accident, they could only collect 50% of their damages.
Nobody should ever have to wonder whether or not they can afford good legal assistance after an accident.

This means that we don’t get paid unless you win your case.
Yes. Even though California law requires drivers and passengers to wear their seat belts, that does not mean other drivers can behave recklessly and get away with it. An auto accident lawyer will be able to help you understand your legal options if you were not wearing a seat belt at the time of an accident.
