What To Do If You’re In an Auto Accident
If you, or someone you love was a victim of a car accident, contact our law office today to schedule your free consultation.
No matter who is at fault for a collision, you should not admit being at fault at a collision site. An auto accident can be a very stressful and confusing event, and most people are not at their best immediately after the accident.
The first concern is the physical well being of everybody involved in the accident (whether as a driver, passenger, or pedestrian). The first thing to do is see if anyone needs emergency medical attention. If so, make sure someone calls for an ambulance or paramedic unit, so the injured person(s) can receive medical care as soon as possible.
If no one at the accident scene needs emergency medical care, the next concern is getting all of the information about the other persons involved in the collision before you leave the area. Again, because the accident can be stressful and upsetting, it is easy to collect yourself and leave the scene without finding out a few important facts about the other person(s). The following is a handy list that you can print and keep in the glove box of your vehicle in the event that you are involved in an auto accident.
This list of facts is not a complete list of every bit of information that may help you in recovering from an auto accident, but it will give you a start on taking the steps you may need to take to “getting back on the road” and recovering from the event. If you feel that you need assistance in getting reimbursement for damages (including fixing your car, paying for medical expenses, recovering for lost wages, etc.), you may wish to consult with a lawyer to find out what your rights are and whether there are other damages that may be paid to you under the law.
