What to Do After a Car Accident in Orange County, California
Huntington Beach Car Accident
You’re cruising along Beach Boulevard heading for Huntington Beach on a beautiful Southern California. Suddenly, you hear the crunch. Someone has run into your car and caused a significant amount of damage. What do you do? Follow these tips so you can stay safe after a car accident in Huntington Beach.
One of the first things to note is how many people there are involved in the accident. You want to make sure that talk to as many people who were involved in the accident as possible. Also, if there are any witnesses, get their information as well. This will help your attorney when it comes to gathering the details of your accident; especially when it comes to putting together a demand for settlement.
Make sure that everyone in your car and in the other vehicles are okay. Again, keep a record of everybody’s injuries. However, do not get out of your car until it is safe to do so. If conditions are hazardous and there is no one near who can help, remain in your vehicle until help arrives. You want to make sure that the police are contacted, especially if someone is seriously injured.
Take pictures of everything related to your accident. This includes all the vehicles and their damage, drivers and passengers, roadway conditions. You want to also take pictures of the environment such as traffic signs, weather conditions, the position of the sun, and potential witness. Any one of these images will be helpful when it comes to your car accident claim.
Exchange insurance information with the other driver. It’s very important not to assign blame or admit responsibility at this point because you do not know all the circumstances of the situation. Try to limit any conversation with the other party to minimize saying the wrong thing.
Contact us right away after the accident. We can advise you on the proper course of action, which may include calling the police and your insurance company. Silverthorne Attorneys will make sure that you get taken care of and receive adequate compensation.
