Protect Yourself After an Alabama Car Accident
While you can’t change what happened in the car crash, there are several steps you can take to strengthen your auto accident claim:
- File records of the car accident.
Include any photos, videos, and information you may have collected at the scene of the crash.
- See your physician immediately.
Don’t let the insurance adjuster choose a doctor for you – you have the right to choose your own.
- Call your insurance company.
A delay in reporting the car accident can hurt your claim.
- Don’t sign anything for the insurance adjuster.
Insurance companies will sometimes send an adjuster to the scene of an accident to gather information while you are vulnerable.
- Keep a journal detailing how you feel after the accident.
Six or seven months after the accident, it can be difficult to remember how painful simple actions were, like cooking dinner or pulling a shirt over your head.
- Keep receipts and records of expenses.
Documents, such as medical records or receipts for household services, can strengthen your claim.
- Call an experienced lawyer.
