Immediate Steps You Should Take After A Car Wreck

The period immediately following a car accident is a crucial time. Your top priority is to first address any critical or life-threatening injuries to you, your passengers or the other driver. Additionally, it is essential that you conduct the following actions:

  • Contact emergency services to initiate a police report of the accident
  • Write down the date, time, location, road conditions or other pertinent details
  • Take photos of the vehicles involved in the accident, weather conditions, etc.
  • Contact your insurance company to provide initial information
  • Visit your doctor for a full medical evaluation

Mistakes To Avoid After An Auto Accident

In order to protect yourself and your right to future compensation for your injuries, avoid the following:

  • Do not discuss who you believe was at fault for the accident
  • Understand that everything you say will be part of the official final police report
  • Never accept the initial settlement your insurance company offers because it may be well below what you are entitled

Regardless of the circumstances surrounding the accident, it is essential that you immediately seek legal representation from a knowledgeable, licensed attorney. Securing the services of a lawyer is also critical if you discover that the other driver lacks insurance. Attorney Doane is a skilled negotiator who understands the nuances of the insurance industry. He will always fight for your optimal outcome and build a strong case to achieve results.
