Tips After A Car Accident

Getting into a car accident can be very scary for everyone involved. Lives are potentially at stake, adrenaline is high, and senses are heightened. But it is important to maintain a level head.

After a car accident, remember to:

  • Seek medical attention. Receiving prompt and consistent medical treatment is important for demonstrating proof of your injuries and the cost of medical care.
  • Document evidence. Take pictures of the incident, the damage, the scene, and other relevant details of the accident. The more pictures, the better.
  • Obtain contact information. Take down information from the other driver, including insurance, license plate, contact information, etc. If there are witnesses to the accident, make sure you have their contact information as well.
  • Talk to an attorney before giving statements to insurers. Insurers are only looking for ways to minimize their payouts, so consult an attorney before talking to insurers about your claim.
