What Should I Do After a Car Accident?

The minutes after a traffic accident can be terrifying, confusing, and nerve wracking. There are a few things that you should do immediately after getting in an accident to ensure a positive outcome, for both your financial and physical health.  

  1. Make sure that you and everyone in the car with you is physically unharmed. If someone is injured, call 911 if you are able.  
  2. You may want to contact 911 anyway, if police and (if necessary) ambulances are already not on site.  
  3. If you are severely injured, you will be taken to the hospital via ambulance before filing a police report. You will do the next few steps after you are conscious.  
  4. File a police report with the officer who arrives. Be sure to note the officer’s name and badge number if you are able.  
  5. Get information from the other driver, including name, address, phone number, and insurance agency.  
  6. Take pictures of the accident from a variety of angles, being sure to focus on any damage to your car as well as injuries you or passengers may have.  
  7. Seek out the names and contact information of any willing witnesses. It will be helpful, but not necessary, to record their statements on video.  
  8. Contact a personal injury attorney. If you aren’t sure if you need their assistance, but suspect you may want to pursue a claim, contact them anyway. It is better to have them involved as soon as possible after an accident to maximize any settlement you may receive.  

What Types of Traffic Accidents Are There?

We represent people who have been in a wide variety of traffic accidents. Here’s a list of the type of car accident cases we represent. If your accident type is not on this list, call us for a free consultation, and we will let you know if we can help you.  

What Should I Expect at My Consultation?

When you get in your car, you never think about or plan for a traffic accident. If you are involved in an accident, you likely will feel like your life is spinning out of control and you are being pulled in one hundred different directions between medical bills, work obligations, family obligations, recovery time, car repairs, and more. We are here to help you gain back control in an uncontrollable situation.   

After you call us, we will schedule a consultation with you. We understand that your time is valuable, so your consultation can be scheduled remotely or in person. During the consultation, we will address your immediate needs, questions, and concerns. Then, we will discuss every option available to you.

From there, we will come up with a personalized plan of action that will allow you to get the most compensation you are entitled to. You will leave the consultation with a full understanding of the legal rights and claims specific to your accident case, as well as an action plan that details next steps – both for you and for our team. You will also leave with an overall idea of how your case will proceed so that you can focus what’s most important: putting the pieces of your life back together.
