Immediately following a car wreck, you may be shaken and upset. The crash was the other driver’s fault, but you’re worried about hospital bills, missing work, and supporting your family.
That’s why it’s smart to be prepared for whatever may happen. Have a plan in place so that you know what to do—and what not to do.
Follow these important steps to take after a car accident:
- Call the police. Move to a safe location, without leaving the scene of the accident.
- Get medical treatment. Check for injuries, and see your physician immediately. Many injuries, such as whiplash, concussion or muscle strains injuries may not be obvious until later. Don’t let the insurance adjuster choose a doctor for you-you have the right to choose your own.
- Collect important information. Take pictures of the scene of the crash. Trade names and phone numbers with other affected drivers. Don’t admit fault or blame the accident on anyone
- Notify your insurance company. A delay in reporting the crash can hurt your claim. Avoid signing any papers for the insurance adjuster without speaking to our attorneys first.
- File records of the car accident. Keep expense receipts and careful records of any details. Documents such as police reports or medical records can help strengthen your claim.
- Call an experienced lawyer. With over 38 years of experience, the car accident attorneys at Cory Watson are on your side. We are ready and willing to fight for you.
