Steps to Take after a Car Accident
Typically, drivers find themselves in a dazed state of confusion after colliding with another vehicle. However, it is important to remain as composed as possible at the accident scene and remember to take certain steps that could be crucial to obtaining maximum compensation.
Following a car accident, you should:
- Seek immediate medical attention for your injuries
- Call the police to report the accident
- Ask any witnesses for their contact information
- Collect license plate numbers and insurance and registration info from other drivers
- Take pictures of the accident scene and all vehicles involved in the crash
- Contact our personal injury lawyers prior to speaking to any insurance companies
Something that many people fail to take into consideration after a car crash is their interaction on social media. Be careful not to post anything regarding the accident until your claim is settled. Insurance companies can use the information they find on social media platforms as evidence against you to reduce their liability and the money they owe.
