If you’re ever involved in a car accident, there are certain things you should do to help protect your rights and ensure that you get the compensation that you deserve.
Call 911 immediately after the accident if there are any injuries and remain on the scene until the emergency medical services arrive. In the meantime, take pictures of the scene with your camera and write down your contact information, the other drivers’ names and insurance companies.
Report the crash to your insurance company if you have collision coverage. If you don’t have this, contact a personal injury lawyer right away to make sure that you are properly compensated for your injuries and property damage.
Lock in any witnesses at the scene of the crash and get their names, addresses and phone numbers as soon as possible. Many witnesses are reluctant to come forward after an accident and leave without identifying themselves, which can hurt your case later on.
Identify any other vehicles that may have been involved in the accident and write down their license plates or registrations as well as the driver’s name, address and phone number. This can help your lawyer to determine which party’s insurance coverage should be reevaluated.
Then, call your insurer as soon as you can to report the accident, even if you believe the other driver is at fault. You need to report the crash as soon as you can to your insurance company to avoid delays in getting the compensation that you are owed for your injuries and damages.
Talk to your insurance company about your claim and what is happening at the crash scene, and then make sure you have a recorded statement from the other driver. This is important because the other driver’s insurer will have to verify that you were not lying about your own injuries or damages.
