The Most Important Things To Do After An Accident
Immediately call 911. Police and paramedics will soon arrive on the scene. Do not say more than you need to. Tell the police exactly what happened. Do not speculate or guess. Do not speak to the other driver’s insurance company. Common advice given by insurance companies and others includes not apologizing or admitting guilt to anyone. Saying sorry can be used against you later on as an admission of fault. Do not sign anything other than the police report.
After 911 Call 411 Pain
Call 1-800-411-PAIN. They will immediately connect you to a lawyer that will know how to protect your rights. Make sure you speak to a lawyer before speaking to any insurance adjuster or agent, including your own! Before you call your insurance company to report the accident and give your statement, it is essential that you have been advised by a legal professional. Insurance companies can and will use your statement against you if you seek more compensation than they are willing to pay.
Next, 411 Pain will connect you with a medical professional who can help you if you need further treatment. It is recommended that you see this doctor in order to document any injuries that may not be apparent at first. Some injuries are slow to surface, while others fade quickly. Seeking medical attention from a professional who specializes in auto injuries can be invaluable in making sure that you have a complete and accurate record of all injuries sustained to receive full and just compensation.
Take pictures of all damage to your vehicle and any property. Also any injury to yourself. Document everything no matter how trivial it may seem at the time. Make sure to get witness contact information as well as information from all other drivers and passengers including insurance registration.
Of the approximately six million car accidents in the US yearly, one in three involves personal injury. 411-Pain wants all accident victims to receive proper medical care and any compensation to which they are legally entitled, from insurance companies or others.
