Car accidents can happen at any time, without warning. When they do, the most important thing is to try to remain calm. Regardless of what kind of accident it is, the first thing to do is get medical assistance. Once that task is completed, there are some steps to take to make sure your rights are protected.
Do not move your car unless it is blocking traffic. Call the police and make a report. Take photos of the scene, including all the vehicles involved in the accident. Make note of the time of day, and the weather and road conditions at the time of the accident. If there are witnesses at the scene, get as much information as possible, including their names and contact information. Make your driver’s license and insurance information available to the driver of the other vehicle.
Once this has been done, call a personal injury attorney for assistance and representation. It is important to call as soon as possible after the accident so your memory is fresh and the attorney can assist you in gathering the information you will need when filing a claim against the responsible party.
