Being involved in a car accident is a nerve-racking experience, especially if you are injured. Often those that are involved in a car wreck are not sure what to do immediately after the incident. The car wreck attorneys at Hotz & Associates have a few tips for what you can do after a car accident:
Seek medical attention
If you have been injured in the accident, it is important that you seek medical attention as soon as possible. Even if you don’t see physical injuries, it is always better to see a doctor to make sure you are not hurt.
Contact the police
If you are seeking medical attention, you may have already contacted the police when contacting paramedics. If not, you will need to contact the police immediately and provide them with all of the facts regarding the incident once they arrive on the scene. It will be important to get a copy of the police report later which can be used in a personal injury or car wreck case.
If you are able, take as many pictures of the incident as possible, including license plate numbers, photos of all vehicles involved, the road, property damage, and any other relevant road conditions or obstacles that played a role in the wreck.
Exchange information with other parties
Not only will this information be important for the police report and insurance claim, it can also be used for your claim to build your case with your car wreck attorney.
