8 Do’s After a Car Accident:
Find Out If Everyone is Okay.
If anyone is injured, call 911 to request an ambulance.
Call the Police.
Even if no one seems to be injured or you believe the damages are minor, you need to make an official report of the accident.
Write down names, addresses, phone numbers, driver’s license numbers, and insurance information for everyone involved. You should also get the make, model, year, color, and license plate number for all vehicles.
Get Witness Contact Information.
Write down their names and phone numbers in case you need to contact them to prove how the accident happened.
Be Careful What You Say.
Never apologize or admit fault for anything. Statements you make at the scene may hurt your case later on if used against you.
Be Careful What You Sign.
If an insurance company gives you paperwork, review it first with a lawyer before you sign anything.
This includes damage to all vehicles, as well as road conditions and traffic signs, and traffic signals.
Contact a Lawyer.
Accident victims often make the mistake of trusting insurance adjusters and speaking with them before consulting with qualified legal counsel. An experienced car accident lawyer can help make all the difference for victims.
Our practice knows how stressful it can be for the victims who have been involved in a car accident or sustained an injury from one, because it can be detrimental not only physically, but emotionally and financially as well. Trying to handle a car accident claim on your own will not only get you less than you deserve, but it can be more stressful than you think.
