What to do when Involved in an Accident
If you or a loved one find yourself involved in an automobile accident, there are a number of things which should be done to protect both yourself and your interests. The following is a list of the six tasks which should be done post-accident to ensure maximum results:
Notify the police of your accident
If any parties involved suffered serious damage to themselves or their vehicles or property, call the police. An accident report will be compiled which serves as a useful record of your accident.
Never admit fault and/or apologize
Admitting fault to the other driver, witnesses, or police may jeopardize your rights to compensation, even if it’s later proven you weren’t at fault or were only partially at fault for the accident.
Get medical attention
Victims who have sustained serious injuries should seek emergency medical attention immediately following the collision. It is imperative to get examined by a doctor as soon as possible, even if you assess your injuries to be minor. Should you proceed with a car accident claim, this initial medical report serves as a valuable tool to log the severity of your injuries.
Document the Accident
Photos of your vehicle, your injuries sustained, the accident scene, and additional images of what you assess as relevant to serve as useful evidence once pursuing a car accident and/or personal injury claim.You should get the full name, contact information, driver's license number, license plate number, and insurance policy number of the other driver involved. Should there be any witnesses, be sure to get their contact information as well, in order for our offices to get in touch with them.
Don’t talk to the insurance company/claim adjustor
The insurance company may contact you in the days following the accident and request that you sign a contract to receive a settlement. Do not sign! Signing any settlements may nullify your rights to full accident compensation. We will take care of this aspect for you, as this is where a lot of harm can be done towards your case.
Post-accident it is important you call our office as soon as possible. We are committed to helping you pursue justice, and will take all the necessary steps towards your case.
