Do you know the basics of what to do after a car accident? In most cases, these are the five most important things you need to do:
1. If you are able, move your car to a safe area.
2. Check yourself and passengers for injuries. Don’t move if you are seriously hurt.
3. Call 911.
4. If you aren’t badly hurt gather basic but necessary information such as identification, contact details, photos of the other drivers and passengers and the location of the accident.
5. Contact your insurance company and inform them of what happened. However, don’t try to communicate comprehensive details during the first conversation. Do not talk the other driver or drivers insurance companies until you know if you will first need a lawyer.
After you are physically and medically stable you can then look into your legal options. If you were not at-fault then we can help you obtain a fair recovery from the other driver or drivers, which most likely means payment from their insurance companies.
