What to Do Following an Automobile Collision

If you happen to be involved in an accident, following the below steps can help protect your rights and ensure that you are able to receive compensation for the injuries you have sustained and the damages your vehicle may have received:

  • Pull to the shoulder as soon as possible. This will help protect you, your passengers and fellow drivers from further collisions and injuries. Of course, in the event that it is unsafe to do so, do not attempt to move.
  • Contact authorities and ask them to provide a report of the accident. Professional reports and descriptions can make a huge difference when speaking with insurance companies.
  • Do not refuse medical attention from EMT or paramedic. Even though you may feel like you are not hurt at the time, it is important to speak with a medical professional on site and follow-up with a doctor.
  • Obtain information regarding the accident, including the time and date, the driver’s information for all those involved and obtain witness statements and contact information.
  • Do not contact your insurance company without the assistance of an attorney! The right lawyer can help you receive the highest amount of compensation for your case.
