8 Things You Should Do Immediately After A Car Accident
Insurance providers make every effort to reward themselves, not you. Whenever you are involved in an auto accident, whether the accident involved another car, a motorcycle or a truck, both your insurer and the insurance provider of the person or persons liable for the accident, will make an effort to compensate you as little as possible for your insurance claim.
That is why it is crucial to hire a car accident lawyer in Nashville with the experience and proven results of ensuring their clients receive the maximum possible compensation for their injuries and damages.
Here is a list of several things you should do immediately after a car accident:
1. Take Photos
If you don’t carry a camera phone, it is advised to keep a disposable camera in your glove compartment. Taking photos and video of the accident scene will allow you to record evidence that might otherwise be missed.
2. Don’t Move Your Car
Unless it is required to prevent further injury or another accident, do not move your car from where it stopped after the incident. This will permit law enforcement to observe the final location of the cars in relation to other evidence and reconstruct the accident. If you have to move your car, take pictures of the last resting position of each vehicle involved before they are moved.
3. Seek Medical Attention
Always seek medical attention after a car or other auto accident. Get checked out even if you feel OK. Often, the shock and rush of emotions immediately following the accident will mask the pain and you may not realize that you have suffered an injury. Furthermore, some injuries don’t have immediate symptoms and are difficult to fully assess early on.
If you don’t seek medical attention immediately following the car accident, the liable insurance companies might use this as a reason for denying your claim, even after the full extent of your injuries has become apparent. So, always see a doctor after an auto accident, regardless of how you feel.
4. Get a Police Report
Get a police report, even for minor car accidents. For legal purposes, the police report is the official record of the accident and will provide the insurance companies the details they need to decide how your claim should be processed.
Besides, a comprehensive and consistent police report can protect you from being held liable for any claims that fall outside of what has been specified in the report.
5. Collect Information
Collect information from the other motorists involved in the accident. Be sure to collect the insurance details and contact information of all other motorists involved. If the accident involved a truck, then collect both the truck company and the truck brokers details.
Our car accident lawyers have successfully sought compensation from both the trucking company and the broker, for the same accident.Record the license plate number and makes and models of each vehicle involved in the accident. You can even use your camera phone to take photos and video to record evidence that can be used to track down any motorist who flees the scene of the accident or who provides you with false contact information.
6. Find Witnesses
People don’t always tell the truth, especially when they are suspected of having done something wrong. Having an impartial witness to the accident and who can attest to the truth may work in your favor when the liability for the accident is being disputed.
Look for witnesses around the scene of the accident and get their names, phone numbers, and addresses. You can even use your camera phone to record an audio or video testimony from these witnesses at the scene of the accident.
7. Contact Your Insurance Provider
Contact your insurance company inside of 48 hours of your accident. Actually, in many cases, you might want to contact your insurance company immediately. If you are too injured or upset to do so, you might ask an officer on the scene if they would be willing to speak with your insurance agent and provide them with the details they need to begin processing your claim.
