Documenting the car accident scene
After the car accident, you need to do your best to document the entire car wreck. Call the police to report the accident, take pictures of the scene, your injuries and vehicle damage and avoid admitting any blame or apologizing to the other driver until you have all the facts. You should even consider talking to all the witnesses and taking their contact information for future use.
Get your injuries checked
After you’ve left the scene, see a doctor as soon as you can to have your injuries checked out. Some car accident injuries take time to fully show up, so you should see a doctor even if your pain is minor. The sooner you can get treatment and create a record that you saw someone for your injuries, the better it is for your case. Also, keep track of all medical bills, doctor notes and other records of your injuries and medical expenses.
Take notes of the accident
Keep a record of what happened before, during and after the car accident. Write down how the accident made you feel and how your injuries have impacted your day-to-day life. Also, record any names and contact information of people you’ve communicated with about your accident.
Document your car damages
Keep track of all costs associated with your car accident. Use a file or folder to save documents and notes in one place. This should include your claIm number, insurance adjusters name, medical bills and records, quotes for vehicle repairs and full names and information for relevant contacts.
Contact a car accident attorney
Schedule a consultation with an experienced car accident lawyer who can make sure you are doing everything to protect your rights after the accident. It’s easy to get taken advantage of if you don’t know how to handle the insurance company, so a lawyer can make sure that doesn’t happen. They can also help fight for the fair settlement you deserve. If the insurance company or other driver fights against your claim, your lawyer will be there every step of the way, even if you need to take the driver to trial.
