Coachella Accident Lawyer

Coachella Valley is most known for the Coachella Festival of Arts and Music, which takes place every spring. It is located in Riverside County near the Salton Sea. The San Andreas Fault crosses the area near the southeast corner border of Coachella called the Chocolate Mountains. Desert wildflowers bloom in this tough terrain commonly called a trough. Despite the heat, it is one of the fastest growing areas in the country. As a way of designating the differences between this desert valley, there are portions of Coachella named the West Valley, Down Valley and Mid Valley, South and North Valley. Coachella is popular with the young and exploring crowd, but mostly houses senior citizens and wealthy older folk who have settled in the desert oasis. Accidents can become common in the mirage-prone desert. The torrential rains and thunder storms that plague Coachella can definitely cause inexperienced or elderly drivers to get into accidents.

If you are involved in an auto collision, try to remain calm. Drivers should carry a cell phone, a pen and paper for taking notes, and a disposable camera to take photos. Drivers should also carry a card with information about medical allergies or conditions that may require special attention if there are serious personal injuries. There are a number of auto accident kits that usually include a flashlight, a reusable camera and accident documentation instructions. It’s advisable to keep a set of cones, warning triangles or emergency flares, and jumper cables in the trunk.

Check your self, passengers and other drivers for injuries. If nobody is in critical need of medical attention, move your car to the side of the road, out of the way of oncoming traffic. Leaving cars parked in the middle of the road or a busy intersection can result in additional accidents and injuries. Usually, if a car cannot be moved, drivers and passengers should remain in their cars with seatbelts fastened until help arrives. In some instances, however, it may be better to exit the car; for example if your car is in an area blind to oncoming traffic. Regardless, warn oncoming traffic by activating your hazard lights and setting emergency flares, warning triangles and or cones.

After the accident, exchange the following information: name, address, phone number, insurance company, policy number, driver license number and license plate number for the driver and the owner of each vehicle. If the driver is not the insured, establish what the relationship is between the driver and insured and take down the name and address for each individual. Write down a description of each car, including year, make, model and color. Also, include in your notes the exact location of the collision and how it happened. If there are witnesses, try to get their contact information. Their statements may be critical to your case, especially if the other driver denies fault or claims that you caused the car accident.

Call 911 or the appropriate emergency number to report the accident. If law enforcement does not respond, file a city vehicle accident report. A police report will help speed up your claim. When reporting your version of the collision, don’t tell the other drivers or the police that you were at fault, even if you think you were. You may later discover facts that change your mind about the cause of the accident, but any statements you make at the scene may be used against you. Therefore, it’s best to just state the facts of the accident and avoid any interpretations.
