If I’m Involved In An Accident, What Should I Do At The Scene?

In order to be sure that you are able to get what you need out of your auto accident situation, you need to be certain that you are taking evidence and handling the matter properly. The more on top of these matters you remain, the easier it will be to put together a personal injury case that will get you paid for the car, your injuries and any other damages that come into play. To this end, keep reading so that you are able to get the most out of your auto accident.

#1: Assess your situation and get to safety

The first thing you need to do when you get hit by another car is to make sense of the situation you are going through. For example, make note of any pain that you are going through and see if you are able to move around. Get your vehicle out of the roadway and put on your hazard lights. Make sure that you ask the vehicle in a way that keeps you safe and allows you to maneuver. By knowing that you are taken care of and out of harms way, you can then take the necessary steps to get help for your car accident case.

#2: Check on the other driver, but keep conversation to a minimum

Next, it is important that you talk to the other driver to make sure that they are doing okay. If either of you require medical attention, now is the time to contact them. While you should definitely talk to the other party, do not discuss anything about what led up to the accident. Your statements can be used against you in court, so keep all of this conversation to the absolute minimum, while staying calm and also making sure that you are being a human being to the other person.

#3: Call the police to come out and create an accident report

Reach out to law enforcement and have them come out to create an accident report for you. They will take statements and testimony from both drivers about what happened. You can also contact your insurance company to let them know that you were involved in a vehicle wreck, so that they can get the ball rolling on the claims process.

Police officers will open up lanes of traffic and help you get to safety, while also helping you arrange for towing and any other service that you need to get out of harms way and to begin picking up the pieces in your case after the accident.

#4: Gather evidence and exchange information

It is critically important that you start putting together evidence for your car accident case. This means knowing that you have plenty of photo and video which will prove your statement. Insurance companies will be able to go through the evidence and note that your car was hit in a certain way at a certain measure of force. Get as many photos and videos as you can of both your vehicle and the other driver’s vehicle. If there are witnesses on the scene, make sure that you reach out to them as well and gather their contact information. The police officer will also facilitate contact information exchange between you and the other driver.

#5: Get medical attention and start talking to an personal injury lawyer

Finally, it is important that you get a thorough medical evaluation — especially because it may take a while for pain and stiffness to set in. Contact an personal injury attorney so that they can begin helping you put together a car accident case.

By taking the time to use these strategies, you will have the opportunity to bounce back from your car accident. Getting involved in a car accident can be difficult if you do not know what you need to do in order to rectify the issue. However, any time that you are seeking assistance from a lawyer, you will want to apply these tips and start contacting professionals that can help you out the most. By using the tips above, you will be in good hands and best able to make the most out of your legal situation.
