Getting into a motor vehicle accident can be a frightening and potentially traumatizing occurrence. As in any situation that is unexpected and disturbing, it is important to stay calm so that you make the right decisions during and immediately following the accident. Once the initial shock has subsided, the following steps will help you proceed in the right direction to your recovery.
If you are in a motor vehicle accident, do not leave the scene of the accident. Call for medical assistance if necessary, and contact the police. If possible, take photos of the accident scene, vehicle damage, injuries, road conditions, etc. Exchange information with the driver of the other vehicle and remember to take notes of your observations about the accident. If there are witnesses, get their contact information. Report the accident to your insurance company. Do not make any statement regarding fault or liability to anyone at the scene of the accident.
As soon as possible after the accident, it is wise to seek the help of an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to file a claim. If the other party’s insurance company requests to speak with you and asks you to make a statement regarding the accident, it is best to ask your attorney if this is the best course of action. An attorney’s legal advice and guidance will assist you in making the right decisions about your personal injury claim.
