5 THINGS TO DO AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT
Seek medical attention—asses the condition of all those involved in the accident and if necessary call an ambulance. Request a full examination and always proceed according to your doctor’s orders.
Call the police—as soon as you are able, call the authorities to come to the scene and obtain a police report with details of the accident. Keep these in your records and provide it to your attorney.
Gather evidence of the accident—it is vital that you provide your attorney with as much information pertaining to your accident as possible. This includes the contact information of all other drivers and witnesses to the accident, along with photographs of the accident scene, the vehicles involved, and any injuries you have sustained.
Do not admit to any fault—it may come naturally after an accident to apologize for any and everything pertaining to the crash, but do not say sorry to anyone involved or to any witnesses or insurance agents. An apology can be construed as an admission of fault and void your chances at securing compensation.
