Steps To Take After A Crash

The aftermath and recovery following a car accident can be stressful and difficult to process. Many people sustain injuries that require expensive treatment, but you never deserve to pay for injuries caused by someone else.

Calling for medical attention should be your first priority if anyone in the crash is seriously injured.

You should always exchange information with the other driver, which should include insurance information, phone numbers and names.

Be sure to take photos of the scene when possible. You want visual evidence of the damages to your car following the crash.

Within 14 days of an accident, you need to make sure you see a doctor. For one, injuries may have gone undetected and need treatment. You also need to see a doctor within this time frame or you may be unable to file a claim for bodily injury.

Contact an attorney before settling any offers from your insurer. Insurance companies will try to get away with the lowest possible payment they can offer you. A lawyer can defend your rights to fair compensation.
