What to Do After a Car Accident

When the unthinkable happens and you are involved in a car accident, there are some important tips to remember in order to protect yourself.

Following a car accident, try to remember the following:

  • Contact the authorities – Always have the police come to the scene to keep you safe, document the facts, and help determine who was at fault.
  • Document the scene – Take pictures, record license plate numbers, and get information from those involved and from any witnesses.
  • Call your Ridgefield car accident attorney – We can help you navigate this difficult process and interface with your insurance company for you.
  • Call your insurance company – Report the accident, but do not sign anything until we can formally go through your case.
  • Do not admit fault – Even if you believe you may have been at fault for the accident, that is for the authorities to determine.
  • See your doctor – Even if you feel fine, car accidents can cause a myriad of injuries that cam take days or weeks to show symptoms, so always visit your doctor.
