  • 2. What to Do If You Witness an Accident with No One Else Around As auto accident attorneys, we deal with the aftermath of auto accidents daily. Often, our cases depend on credible witnesses, but they’re not always available. Sometimes witnesses leave the scene because they don’t know what to do. If you witness an accident with no one else around, follow these tips:
  • 3. What to Do If You Witness an Accident with No One Else Around Stay calm. No matter what you see or hear, you need to remain calm. You may make the difference between life and death for the parties involved, and you need to stay alert and clearheaded.
  • 4. What to Do If You Witness an Accident with No One Else Around Call 911, and make your way to the scene. Your first priority is to the victims, so get to the scene as quickly as possible. If you’re driving, make sure your car is out of the way, and turn on your emergency flashers to help the police find you. Call 911 as you walk over so help is on the way. The 911 operator will likely keep you on the line and help you stay calm and aid the victims until the police and / or ambulance arrive. If the accident is a hit and run, the at-fault driver may attempt to flee the scene. Read the license plate number and a description of the car to the operator. If victims are milling around, ask them to sit and wait for help. You may need to help them calm down, so speak with them slowly, with a soothing voice. They may be in shock or frightened.
  • 5. What to Do If You Witness an Accident with No One Else Around Assess the scene for possible danger. Quickly survey the scene for immediate danger to yourself and to the victims. For example, if you witness a car accident and one of the cars is on fire, you may need to clear the area around it. Tell the 911 operator what you see, and he or she will guide you.
  • 6. What to Do If You Witness an Accident with No One Else Around Approach the victims carefully. Talk to the victims as you approach them. Quickly assess their injuries, and alert the operator. He or she will tell you what to do. If you have a non-responsive victim, the operator may ask if you wish to try CPR. South Carolina’s Good Samaritan law absolves you from civil damages if you render emergency care, gratuitously and in good faith, at the scene of an accident.
  • 7. What to Do If You Witness an Accident with No One Else Around Try not to disturb any evidence. It can be difficult to know what is evidence and what isn’t, so just do your best to disturb as little as possible. Certainly, if a car is overturned, you’ll want to look inside to see who is in there, but just be careful to touch and move as few things as you can.
  • 8. What to Do If You Witness an Accident with No One Else Around When the police arrive, tell them everything you remember. You’re a vital link to the case and to the outcome of any charges that might be filed. Tell the police as much as you can, but don’t speculate or assume anything. Stick to the facts, as you know them.
  • 9.

  • 14. Motor Vehicle Accidents A serious accident can change your entire life in a matter of seconds. When you are unable to work and have extensive medical bills, it is imperative that the insurance company quickly pay the money you are owed. Unfortunately, insurers aren’t usually so enthusiastic about cutting you a check and can put up quite a fight. Our accident attorneys know how to hold insurers to their obligations and will work to get you compensated quickly. Our founding attorney, Paul Uricchio, represented persons seriously injured in automobile, motorcycle, and trucking accidents for over 40 years. At Uricchio Law Firm, we are well equipped to deal with the insurance company and make sure you are fully informed of all the money you are entitled to—not just what they are telling you about.
  • 15. Motor Vehicle Accidents Our accident lawyers have established strong relationships with numerous doctors and healthcare providers. At our request, these medical experts will help assist in making sure you receive the medical attention you need and deserve. With thorough preparation and investigation, we cover all legal aspects to ensure you receive fair compensation. We will dedicate the time and resources required to build a solid case to help put your life back together. Uricchio Law Firm will handle all aspects of your insurance claim. We will seek to tap into all possible sources of compensation, including your health insurance, Personal Injury Protection coverage, uninsured / underinsured motorist coverage, and the insurance company of the negligent driver.
  • 16. Uninsured / Underinsured Motorist Coverage Many people do not fully understand the automobile insurance coverage they have. Insurance companies often take advantage of this lack of knowledge by offering accident victims less than they are entitled to. One of the best sources for accident compensation is your uninsured / underinsured motorist coverage. This provides compensation in situations where the at-fault driver is not insured or has inadequate liability insurance, and in cases involving hit-and-run accidents.
  • 17. Uninsured / Underinsured Motorist Coverage Uninsured / underinsured coverage is portable under South Carolina law. It can apply not just to a car accident where you are the driver, but also when you are injured in a motorcycle accident, a pedestrian accident, or as a passenger in another vehicle. In addition, family members may be covered by your policy. Uricchio Law Firm takes full advantage of the provisions contained in uninsured / underinsured motorist policies— and will work diligently to help you obtain full compensation for your injuries and losses.
  • 18. Motorcycle Accident Attorneys Our firm has a great deal of experience in cases involving motorcycle accidents, catastrophic injuries and wrongful death. Paul Uricchio was a biker himself, understood the biking experience, and educated his team of the resources necessary to properly investigate a motorcycle accident and assign liability. If you are a biker, please check out our blog, Biker’s Law. Our blog covers everything from biker’s rights on and off the road to current and upcoming motorcycle legislation, and biker events to safety tips.
  • 19. Personal Injury: Medical Malpractice Medical providers are supposed to offer us quality care in our most critical moments. Even though most medical providers do an outstanding job, some providers do not hold themselves to that same standard of care. These medical providers may be guilty of medical malpractice.
  • 20. Personal Injury: Medical Malpractice The Uricchio Law Firm is knowledgeable in the area of medical malpractice and is well equipped with the resources to help determine if you have a valid claim. Although not every bad situation is the direct result of medical malpractice, our firm has the resources to understand medical malpractice cases and understand complex medical matters which allows us to aggressively pursue a legal remedy.
  • 21. Personal Injury: Medical Malpractice Examples of malpractice: • Improper or delayed diagnosis • Negligence in performing surgical procedures • Medication errors • Failure to diagnose • Failure to obtain patient’s informed consent • Abandonment or failure to monitor • Neo-natal (newborn) malpractice and pediatric malpractice • Obstetrical malpractice and delivery room malpractice • If you are the victim of medical malpractice, call 800.LAW.9891 toll free or contact us online.
  • 22. Personal Injury: Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Uricchio Law Firm is committed to ensuring that nursing home patients receive the quality care that they deserve. Understandably, the decision to place a loved one in someone else’s care can be extremely difficult. If you suspect that a nursing home facility is not treating your loved one with the appropriate standard of care and respect, it may be left to you to address the situation and consult with an attorney.
  • 23. Personal Injury: Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Common signs of nursing home abuse and neglect: • Dehydration or malnutrition • Injuries or neglect from inadequately trained staff • Pressure sores or decubitus ulcers • Falls • Improper restraints • Improper administration of medications • Sexual assault If you are uncertain whether or not a loved one has received substandard care or has suffered abuse, please don’t hesitate to call us today at 800.LAW.9891.
  • 24. Personal Injury: Premises Liability The legal theory of “premises liability” holds owners and occupiers of property legally responsible for accidents and injuries that occur on that property. The types of incidents that give rise to premises liability claims can range from a slip and fall on a public sidewalk to an injury suffered on an amusement park ride.
  • 25. Personal Injury: Premises Liability The liability of owners and occupiers of property will vary depending on the legal rules and principles in place in the state where the premises liability injury occurred. In some states, the court will focus on the status of the injured visitor in determining the liability of the owner or occupier. In other states, the focus will be on the condition of the property and the activities of both the owner and visitor. The Uricchio Law Firm will investigate any claim based on premise liability. If you or someone you love has suffered due to another’s neglect, contact us for a free case evaluation at 843.795.9300.
  • 26. Personal Injury: Products Liability An individual who has been injured using a product may have the right to pursue a claim against the manufacturer, wholesaler, store, or individual that sold the defective product. In such cases, the injured party may be able to collect compensation for their injuries. Conditions that may cause an individual to be injured include: • The product was improperly manufactured • The product may have been improperly designed • Absence of proper warning about the use of the product. If you feel that you may have a product liability claim contact our office for a free case evaluation.
  • 27. Personal Injury: Sexual Assault Each year, millions of people are victimized by violent crime. Unfortunately, most sexual abuse crimes are committed by someone the victim knows such as a school teacher, minister, medical provider, relative, or family friend. In most cases, the victim feels helpless and is too afraid or embarrassed to come forward. The Uricchio Law Firm is equipped with the knowledge and resources to help assist victims and their families pursue justice, improve public safety, and seek monetary compensation. If you feel that you or someone you know may be a victim of sexual abuse, contact our office at 843.795.9300 so that we can help assist you through this traumatic experience.
  • 28. Personal Injury: Animal Attacks Animal attacks can result in serious and, at times, permanent injuries. The most common type of animal attack is a dog bite. Unfortunately, most dog bite victims are children. It is not uncommon in today’s society for dog owners to train their dogs to be overly aggressive for the purposes of protection and even dog fighting. Often, young children cannot tell the difference between what looks like a playful dog and an aggressive one. In some cases the individual has done nothing to provoke the attack.
  • 29. Personal Injury: Animal Attacks If ever attacked by an animal you should: • Seek medical attention immediately • Get the name and contact information of the animal’s owner • Get the name and contact information of any eye witnesses • Report the attack to the police • Request a copy of the police report • Take photographs of the animal and the location where the incident occurred • Take photographs of the injuries • Do not accept any settlement or admit fault with the owner’s insurance company • Save any clothing damaged by the animal
  • 30. Personal Injury: Workplace Accidents Many employees in South Carolina are covered by workers’ compensation insurance. This coverage pays for medical care and rehabilitation therapy after a workplace accident. It can also provide compensation for lost wages and any disability resulting from the accident.
  • 31. Personal Injury: Workplace Accidents However, your employer’s compensation insurance company may try to minimize the extent of your workplace injury. Without the help of a workers’ compensation attorney, you may not get the medical care and benefits you deserve. Uricchio Law Firm is knowledgeable in this complex area of the law and work tenaciously to get our clients the medical care and benefits they deserve. If we determine that your initial medical evaluation did not fully identify the extent of your injury, we can arrange for you to receive a second medical opinion.
  • 32. Personal Injury: Third-Party Claims If your injuries were caused by a third party, such as a contractor or equipment supplier, or you were injured in a vehicle accident while on the job, you may have a third- party claim. This can enable you to obtain compensation in excess of what you get from the workers’ compensation system — including compensation for pain and suffering. Uricchio Law Firm successfully handled a large number of third-party claims, including many involving catastrophic injuries. We will work to maximize the compensation you receive from all sources. If you have suffered a serious injury, Uricchio Law Firm will advocate on your behalf to get you the compensation you deserve. Contact us today or call for a free consultation.
