What to Expect Following a Car Accident

If you or someone you know has been involved in a car crash, you are probably wondering what the best way to proceed will be.

Seek Medication Attention: Most importantly, it is critical to seek medical attention as soon as possible following a car crash, even if you do not think you are hurt.

Information Gathering Stage: It is critical to gather certain information while you’re still at the scene of the accident, including the name and contact information for the following:

  • The other driver
  • The other driver’s insurance company
  • Any witnesses to the accident, and
  • Any law enforcement officers the come to the scene.

Take Pictures: Taking photographs while you are still at the accident scene is very important, especially now that technology is widely available, and most people carry cell phones with camera capabilities. While you are at the accident scene, take pictures of the following:

  • The locations of the vehicles
  • Areas of physical damage on each vehicle
  • The license plates of each vehicle.

As a general rule, the more information and documentation you provide to the insurance company, the more likely you are to receive fair compensation from the insurance company for all of your damages. Remember, the insurance company is not required to reach a settlement agreement with you.
