What Should You Do After an Auto Accident?
When accidents occur, there’s no telling what the impact will be on each individual. Even minor accidents where there is little damage can have a real effect on an individual. It’s important that, as much as possible, everyone remain calm and take the necessary steps following an accident.
- Firstly, make sure you are safe. Wait somewhere where you are not putting yourself in further danger.
- Use your phone to take photographs of the scene of the accident and any surrounding hazards.
- Gather as much information from witnesses as possible. Try to record their names, contact information, and anecdotal notes on what they saw happen.
- When you can, write out your recollection of the sequence of events. Be as detailed as possible. Take your time doing this as it is important.
- Contact an experienced personal injury lawyer for advice.
There are important timelines that need to be adhered to. It’s often a good idea to speak with a personal injury lawyer before you call your insurance company. They can advise on the best approach to make sure you and your family are protected.
