If you are injured from a car accident, you should seek immediate medical help and then contact an Attorney.

Steps to follow after an automobile accident:

  • Do Not Panic.
  • Police Report. File a car accident report with the police. Do not leave the scene until the police report is complete. Do not admit fault or liability: Stay neutral, and limit your discussion. Anything you say can be used against you in a court of law.
  • Picture. Take pictures with your phone.  Pictures are worth a thousand words and often times, the only time to capture the best evidence of the crash is at the scene of the accident.
  • Witnesses. Get names, address, and phone numbers of everyone involved in the accident, including witnesses.
  • Be your own investigator.  Record information such as weather conditions, date, and time of the accident. Secure a description of the other car and license plate number. You also need the name of the insurance company of the other driver and the vehicle identification number of the car. The police can assist you with gathering this information. It should make it to the police report.
  • Do not move your vehicle. Unless you are in danger, it is best not to move your car until the police arrive. The police record the locations of the cars. This is extremely important to any future case.
  • Call your insurance company. Ask if there are any deadlines for filing claims. Do not cooperate with the insurance company. Just file the claim. Do not accept a settlement before you speak to an attorney, do not sign anything, and contact us immediately.
  • Call an attorney. If you are injured, an experienced car accident lawyer can assist you with such things as preserving the evidence you may need to prove your case. we do all the work for you while you focus on treating and healing.
