Four Things To Do After A Traffic Accident

The things that you do and say in the wake of a traffic accident can either positively or negatively impact your ability to recover compensation for your injuries and financial losses. Therefore, it is important to take the following steps.

  1. Dial 911 — Ask for an ambulance if you or anyone else may possibly need or benefit from medical attention. A responding police officer will include your account along with his or her own assessment of what happened and record any issued citations in an official accident report. This report is key evidence in your case.
  2. Exchange information — When exchanging information, do not discuss what happened or who was at fault. Obtain the name, address, telephone number, driver's license, plate number and insurance company name and policy number of any and all drivers who were involved in the accident. Taking clear photos of the relevant documents is a quick way to exchange information.
  3. See a doctor — Report any and all injuries to your doctor and obtain a thorough exam. Maintain a record of your injuries and all related expenses. If you do not have a doctor and need help getting medical care, an attorney can help you find medical professionals.
  4. Call an attorney — Was another driver at fault in causing an accident? Did you suffer injuries? Is your or another driver's insurance company pressuring you to provide a recorded statement or to accept a settlement? An attorney can answer your questions, help you understand your options and fight to recover compensation for your injuries and losses.
