Steps to Take After a Motor Vehicle Accident
After being involved in a motor vehicle accident, there are certain steps you must take to protect your health and the future of a possible personal injury claim.
Here are some steps you should keep in mind in the event of an accident:
- If you are not in need of emergency medical assistance, check to see if anyone else involved in the accident needs medical attention.
- Call 911, even if the accident appears to be minor. If you file a personal injury claim, a police report will provide crucial evidence.
- Swap information with the other driver, including license information, the make and model of the vehicle, and contact information. These might be included in the police report, but it is better to be safe than sorry.
- Take pictures to document the accident and damages sustained to both vehicles. If your injuries are visible, make sure you photograph them as well and continue to take pictures of them as they heal.
- Contact your insurance company to report the accident while you are still at the scene of the accident. They will let you know of anything else they might need to process the claim.
- Even if you are not seriously injured, you should still go to the doctor for a full examination. Some injuries do not immediately produce symptoms and, if you put off a doctor’s visit, it could weaken the strength of your claim.
Whatever you do, do not let the other driver convince you that you should handle this matter amongst yourselves. You must also hire a car accident attorney as soon as possible to help you handle the at -ault party’s insurance company, so you can avoid falling prey to a low-ball settlement offer.
