What To Do After An Accident

When you seek compensation for your injuries, large insurance companies will do everything they can to fight your case and minimize the payout you receive. These companies have massive legal departments and seemingly endless funding, so it is important to choose an advocate who can put you on even footing with these huge corporations.

We have the knowledge, experience and resources to battle with insurance companies for the compensation you deserve.

Here is a list of what to do after an accident. The most important thing our lawyers do is protect your interests. All of these actions can help us make sure that protection is most effective.

Call The Police

You will need a police report to file with your insurance claim, especially if there is severe damage to your vehicle or if you have been seriously injured.

Seek Medical Attention

Your health is the most important concern after an accident. Whether you were involved in a fender bender or a serious car crash, you will suffer the effects. If you are well enough to walk away from the accident without needing an ambulance, go to an emergency room or a doctor as soon as possible.

Not only does this ensure that you get the treatment you need after an accident, but it also starts a record of your injuries. We will need this to show the insurance company how your injuries may affect you in the future.

Exchange Information With The Other Driver

As long as you are not severely injured, get the other driver's name, contact information and insurance policy information. If you are severely injured, ask another person, such as the police officer, to get this for you.

Contact A Lawyer

While you will need to file a claim with an insurance company, either the at-fault driver's or your own, you may be better off contacting us first. Many insurance companies will record your interview and use anything you say against you as you make your claim. We can help you file your claim and negotiate for fair and full compensation on your behalf.
