Injured in a car accident? What you should do next

There are important steps you can take in the time immediately following a car accident. Taking these steps can help ensure you properly handle the situation and positively influence your ability to recover money that will help with your medical bills, damage to your car and possibly much more:

  • Remain at the scene of the accident
  • Call 911 to report the incident, making sure to inform the operator if someone is injured
  • Exchange information with the other driver or drivers involved
  • Take pictures of the scene, your vehicle, the other driver's vehicle and your injuries (if possible)
  • Get the contact information of any witnesses who saw the accident happen
  • Report the accident to your insurance company
  • As soon as you can, contact a car accident attorney

There are also important things you should avoid doing, such as admitting liability to law enforcement officers on the scene and giving a statement to the other driver's insurance adjuster, who may attempt to contact you. In either of these situations, providing information or a statement may negatively impact your ability to win your case, as it may be used to limit the other driver's liability. Don't delay - contact a lawyer at our firm. Not only is your initial consultation free, but you pay nothing for our legal services unless we win your case.
