What Should you Do After a Car Accident

Posted by Richard P. Hastings | Apr 23, 2023 | 0 Comments

I am Connecticut personal injury lawyer Richard Hastings.

Car accidents can be a traumatic experience but knowing what to do after an accident can help protect your safety, legal rights and can help you get more money for your case.

Here's what you should do after a car accident:

First, check for injuries and call 911 if anyone is hurt. Move your vehicle to a safe location to prevent further accidents, if you need to do so.

Exchange information with the other driver, including names, contact information, insurance information, and license plate numbers.

Take multiple photos of the damage and the scene of the accident. Contact the police and tell the officer why the other party is at fault.

Seek medical attention, preferably by going to the hospital by ambulance, if you are not feeling right.

Contact a personal injury attorney immediately to protect your legal rights. Do not under any circumstances speak with the insurance adjuster of the at fault party. It's important to act quickly after a car accident to ensure that you receive fair compensation for your injuries. If you've been injured in a car accident in Connecticut, contact our personal injury attorneys today to schedule a free consultation.
