What You Should Do after an Auto Accident
An automobile accident can leave its victims with serious physical injury, mounting long-term medical expenses, loss of income, and significant pain and suffering. Often those involved in an accident are not prepared to handle all of the technical details required to prove your claim.
An automobile accident checklist
Make sure you have:
- Collected information from the other driver, including name, address, phone number, vehicle make and model, license plate, insurance information
- Identified and collected information from eyewitnesses
- Taken photos of the involved vehicles and accident scene, if possible
- Waited for the police to arrive, if possible
- Recorded the officer's name, badge number and contact information
- Sought immediate medical treatment
- Obtained the police report
- Notified your insurance company
- Contacted an experienced auto accident attorney who knows the local roads and conditions
- Kept all associated medical records and bills
- Retained all evidence, including damaged clothing and other personal belongings
- Kept all records of vehicle damage and expense
- Recorded your recollection of the accident, including weather conditions, the other driver's behavior and conversations with all parties involved
