After an auto accident, it is important to know how to proceed so that you do not compromise your ability to obtain the compensation you are entitled to from those responsible for the accident.
AT THE SCENE OF AN AUTO ACCIDENT
You should first be sure that any injured parties receive medical attention. Disabled vehicles must be moved from traffic, if it is possible to do so without risking further injury. By law, all involved parties must provide their names, addresses, driver’s license numbers, and insurance information.
AFTER AN AUTO ACCIDENT
You should seek medical treatment, if needed. You should keep records of all medical expenses and visits. Inform your auto insurance company promptly after the accident. If a police report was not filed at the time of the accident, you must do so as soon as possible. Finally, you need to seek the counsel of an experienced personal injury lawyer, such as the Caperton Law Firm.
