What Should You Do After An Accident?
First, get to safety if you are able and report the accident. Contacting the police will ensure that your accident is properly documented in a police report – documentation that your insurance company may ask for. Calling 911 will ensure that you or other injured parties get medical attention immediately.
While you are at the scene of the accident, it is also important to exchange information with any other drivers involved and document the facts if you are able. While the police will record this information, it is also important to document some information yourself. The name and contact information of other drivers involved, vehicle information like the make and model of the cars and plate numbers, the location of the accident and the driver’s license numbers of all drivers involved could be important information that your insurance company may need.
Get medical care for any injuries. Even if your injuries seem minor, getting assistance immediately could prevent other issues from going unnoticed. It also makes sure that there is a record that the accident caused those injuries in case they grow worse.
Importantly, you should also call an attorney. Your attorney can help you work with your insurance company and the insurance companies of drivers who may be at fault for the accident, ensuring that you receive the financial and medical care that you need to recover. Working with an experienced lawyer could also help you fight for the financial support you are due if your insurance claim is denied.
