What to do After an Accident

What to do After Car, Truck or any Accident

Accidents do happen. An accident can be a very painful event, and the injuries sustained can affect your abilities to think properly. The most crucial thing to know is what to do during these times, and how to protect your interests. Our firm is committed to assisting clients in such a situation, and have prepared a list in order to better assist you if ever in an accident.

1) Get Help!

Stop, and try to remain composed. If necessary, call an ambulance, or have passengers or someone in close proximity call an ambulance. NEVER LEAVE THE SCENE OF THE ACCIDENT!

2) Notify the police!

If unable to call, drive to your nearest police department. However, you may not leave the scene of the accident without getting the important information discussed below.

3) Get Crucial Information!

Obtain all necessary information from the other drivers involved, including name, address, driver’s license number, insurance information, and telephone numbers. Write all relevant information regarding the vehicle, including the make, body type, license plate number, and any witness information and their information.

4) Pictures!

A picture is worth a thousand words. If you can, and it is safe, take pictures of the vehicles before they are moved. This can be helpful evidence if the accident caused any injuries. After you get emergency care and are home, remember to take pictures of your injuries – any cuts, bruises or bandages, and any casts.

5) If Injured:

Contact a physician, or go to a hospital immediately and seek treatment. Most individuals are concerned about not having any health care coverage, however, if it’s the other drivers fault, your bills may be paid by their insurance company, and our firm will assist in such process.

6) Notify Your Insurance Company!

You must notify your insurance company of the accident. However, allow our law office to provide the statement to the other driver’s insurance company. Do not speak to the other driver’s insurance company.

7) Protect Your Rights!

To protect your rights you must act quickly after a motor vehicle accident. Deciding fault can be complicated. Insurance coverage, and how you will get your medical bills paid, can be very confusing and frustrating. Don’t jeopardize your rights. CALL OUR OFFICE! WE CONCENTRATE ON INJURY MATTERS, AND WILL ANSWER ALL YOUR QUESTIONS.
