What To Do After You've Been In A Car Accident

After you're involved an automobile accident (or are injured as a pedestrian), you may feel scared and overwhelmed. Many people make mistakes in the wake of the moment that lower the compensation they are eligible to receive later in the process. Make sure you follow these tips after you are in an accident:

  • Seek medical treatment. Waiting to seek treatment can actually hurt your case, and lower your settlement or verdict. For your own health and for the sake of your case, seek complete and reasonable medical treatment now and worry about the bills later.
  • Don't talk to the other party's insurance company. Claims agents will always try to get you to admit fault, so they can pay out as little as possible to you. Don't speak to the other person's insurance company until you have an attorney by your side to protect your rights.
  • Keep all relevant documentation. Your medical bills and other important paperwork is what will determine how much compensation you are eligible to receive. Make sure you keep copies of everything related to your accident.
  • Consult in an attorney as soon as possible. The sooner you get started, the more time we have to investigate the scene of your accident and interview witnesses. This is particularly important for truck accident victims, where early investigation can uncover evidence that is critical to proving your case.
