Loved One Arrested? What You Should Know About Posting Bail

One night I was sitting at home relaxing when my husband called me from jail. He told me he had been arrested and asked me to post bail. I had no idea how bail worked. I didn't know if I should do it, what it would cost or how to go about doing it. I created this website because I know that others may find themselves in the position that I once found myself in. I hope my information helps you make a decision on whether or not to post bail, and teaches you what to expect should you do so.

Get Rear Ended And Injured? Hit The Brakes And Call A Lawyer

If you were rear ended and the driver of the other vehicle is trying to claim the accident was your fault, you need talk with a personal injury lawyer so you don't get stuck with the expenses from the accident. You could be facing expenses of your own, along with expenses related to the other driver if you take the blame for the accident.

Your lawyer isn't just going to help prove that you aren't the one that was responsible for the accident, they are also going to help you get the compensation that you should be awarded for dealing with the injuries and stress. There are three crucial pieces of evidence your lawyer needs to have to put this case together.

The Black Box Data

There is a black box data recorder box manufactured in many vehicle models. This is a unit in the vehicle that is recording your movements, like the speed you are driving, whether you are using a blinker, whether you have a seatbelt fastened and more. You have to get a court order to get the box of the other driver, and you will want both of them.

Your lawyer can use this to show that you were slowing down or stopped, or that the other driving was speeding. Once the lawyer can use this unit to determine your innocence, they can move forward with the case.

Eyewitnesses   

Are there eyewitnesses from the scene of the accident? These people may not want to get dragged through a long court case, but they may be willing to make a statement. If your lawyer can get them to make a statement to the police, or appear in front of a judge, this is a great benefit for your case.

Proof of Injuries

If you want to go after the insurance company of the other driver, or after the other driver if they didn't have insurance, you need hard proof of your injuries. You need to have a medical professional give you a written description of your injury or a diagnosis. Have them describe what your injury is like, what treatment you've had so far, and what treatment you may need in the future.

With these three pieces of evidence, your lawyer should be able to help you win your personal injury case, and escape getting ticketed or stuck with the bills from the accident. If you need a personal injury lawyer, contact Cantini Law Group.
