Advice from our Sponsor

Our sponsor Bill Shirer is a personal injury attorney and has offered the following professional advice concerning accidents.

Automobile Accident

In you are in an accident with a vehicle an are not too badly hurt, try to remember the following:

  • Get the name and driver’s license number of the other driver.
  • Take pictures of everything you can at the scene. 
  • If there are witnesses, get names and numbers. Have them text you.
  • Talk with the police officer and be nice.  (Assholes get nowhere.)
  • When talking with anyone at the scene, don’t every say anything that might weaken your claim. Don’t be conciliatory.

If you are hurt badly, and are able, ask a witness if they would possibly take pictures and get information.  Otherwise, the police report will have the necessary information.

Dog vs Bike

If you have an accident involving a dog, it is crucial to ascertain who owns the dog and to do the following:

  • Take pictures of the dog(s)
  • Take pictures of the property where you think the dog lives.
  • Knock on the door and ask if they own the dog or if they know whose dog it is. 
  • Take pictures of the area and roadway.
