Once you are out of harm’s way, call the police. The officer will fill out an accident report.
If it is safe to do so before any cars or vehicles are moved, take pictures of the accident scene so that you can prove what happened. If you have to move the vehicles for reasons of safety, take pictures of the damage after they have been moved.
If you were injured in a car accident, get medical attention as soon as possible. Even if you don’t think you are injured, it is essential to be checked by a medical doctor. You may have injuries that aren’t obvious at first but may become apparent later on.
Insurance companies usually don’t have your best interests in mind. Their job is to convince you to settle for as little as possible, especially if it saves them money. If you were in a car accident and suffered damage to yourself or your property, call us today to help you understand your rights after an accident.
