What Should I Do After a Car Accident?

Surviving a car accident can be an incredibly stressful experience. The steps you take after a car accident can have an immense impact on the outcome of your car accident claims process and can even impact your ability to make a claim. Here are some steps you can take to protect your rights after a car accident:

  • Call 911. Always call the police after a car accident. In fact, if someone was hurt in the crash or if personal property damage exceeds $500, you are required by law to report the crash to the police. If you suspect the other driver might have been drinking and driving or if the other driver fled the scene of the accident, you should also report the crash. When making an insurance claim or pursuing damages inside or outside court, it can be incredibly helpful to have a police report when seeking compensation for your losses.
  • Help the Injured. If you have been injured, seek medical help, and seek medical assistance for others who have been injured in the crash. If you have been involved in a car accident in which another person was injured, you are required by law to render aid.
  • Secure the Accident Site. If your car is blocking traffic or poses a danger to others on the road, move your car if it is safe to do so. If it is possible, take photos of the final position of your car relative to the other car. Photographic evidence can be helpful should you need to seek damages or bring a case to court.
  • Exchange information with the other driver. Make sure to write down the other driver’s contact information, name, insurance company name and policy number, driver’s license number and license plate number, make and model of the other vehicle, and where the accident took place. If other people witnessed the accident, take down their names and contact information as well.
  • Take Photos. A picture is indeed worth a thousand words. Take photos of the damage to your vehicle and take photos of the location where the accident took place.
  • Report the accident to your insurance company. Most insurance companies require that you report the accident as soon as possible.
  • Contact a car accident lawyer. If you have questions about your rights or if you think the other driver was at fault for your accident, consider reaching out to Miller Trial Law. The car accident lawyers at Miller Trial Law can review the details of your case, estimate the value of your claim, and fight to help you get the settlement you may deserve from responsible parties.
