What To Do After A Car Accident

5 Steps That You Should Take After Being In An Accident

If you've just been hurt in a car accident, then there are certain steps that will put you in the best position to obtain fair compensation for your damages.

  1. Take Pictures of the Scene

    One of the most important things that you can do is take pictures of the vehicle damage, the road, and anything else that was damaged in the accident. Once everything is cleared away, it can be difficult to reconstruct what actually happened. Visual evidence may be vital to proving your case.
  2. Get Examined by a Doctor

    Make sure that you go to a physician immediately following an accident and tell them every symptom that you are experiencing, even if it is minor. Injuries can be subtle at first, then over time become severe & costly. Keep all records of your visits, medications, discussions, and bills.
  3. Do not give any statements to your insurance company

    After fulfilling your obligation to tell your insurance company that the accident occurred, don't provide any further information until you retain a car accident lawyer. They may use your statements against you later on.
  4. Do not post about the accident online

    Refrain from using social media to talk about your accident or injuries because your insurance company can access these details and use them to skew your real position.
  5. Don't talk about your insurance coverage

    Hold back from discussing the terms of your insurance coverage with anyone. Your accident attorney will handle all claims and negotiations from the point you retain them.
