What to Do After a Car Accident

Anyone involved in a car accident must be aware of the steps he or she should take to ensure his or her rights can be fully protected:

  • Seek the appropriate medical treatment, fully document your injuries and treatment, and seek follow-up care if your pain or injuries persist.
  • Write down the name of the other vehicle's driver and owner, including his or her insurance information.
  • Call the police and obtain a police report of the crash.
  • Contact your own insurance company and report the accident.
  • Consult an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.

Soon after your accident, the negligent driver's insurance company might contact you and offer you a sum of money as compensation. You should NOT speak with these representatives until you have hired an attorney to be on your side. These offers almost always are for far less than what you might really deserve.

We will work with insurance agencies on your behalf, and rest assured, we will be very clear if we feel a settlement offer does not reflect the true value of your claim.
