3 Things to do After an Accident

car accident lawyer

It happens to everyone. Accidents happen on occasion. The hours and days immediately following a car accident will be the most critical in both protecting your health and your financial well-being. Below is a list of three things everyone who has been in a car accident should do as soon as possible. Contact a car accident lawyer in our office for a free consultation.

Get Appropriate Treatment

If you have been in a car accident you go to your primary care provider. If you are bleeding, having trouble breathing, or having difficulty seeing hearing, or concentrating you should go the emergency room right away. However, even if you are just a little stiff and sore, you should still see your doctor as soon as possible. The symptoms from a trauma such as a car accident aren’t always felt right away, but the damage will still be there. The sooner you see a medical professional the sooner you will on the road to a healthy recovery.

Get Witness Contact Information

Right after a car accident, there will be people around who saw what happened. You cannot rely on the police or insurance adjustors to get witness contact information. Get names and phone numbers from anyone who saw what happened. Write all the contact information on a single piece of paper, or better yet in your mobile phone. Even if the witness was in your car and is your friend or family member, write their contact information down. This will make it easier if you later need a Lake Forest personal injury lawyer to help with your case.

Call Your Insurance Company 

Insurance companies all have processes they follow before processing a claim. The sooner you call and report the accident the sooner the claim begins getting processed. Initially you will just be asked for the basic information. You should not give a recorded statement to any insurance company before you have checked with your lawyer. However, you can give the basic details such as time, date, location of the accident and the other driver’s insurance information.
