Steps to take after a motor vehicle accident

Immediately after a car crash, your first priority should be your safety and the safety of everyone else at the scene. You should start by taking the following steps:

  • Get your vehicle off the road to prevent a secondary collision
  • If the car cannot be moved, place flares or reflective triangles in the road
  • Call 911 to request police and an ambulance
  • Take photos of the damage and injuries

The law requires you to exchange identifying information with other drivers and render first aid, as necessary. If this feels unsafe, simply remain at the scene until police arrive. As soon as possible after the accident, you should seek medical attention and contact an attorney.

Advantages to hiring a lawyer sooner rather than later

Many accident victims put off hiring a lawyer, because they believe their case is so straightforward they should have no trouble filing their insurance claim. Unfortunately, when insurance companies deal directly with individual claimants, they trot out the Three Ds: deny, delay, and defend. Your straightforward case is now a nightmare of a stalemate. By the time you hire a lawyer, physical evidence has disappeared, and witnesses have forgotten what they saw. You’re now in a much weaker position than you would have been if you’d hired an attorney right away. Strengthen your case by making your call to our firm today.
