Protect Your Rights and Safety After a Car Accident

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, car accidents take place every minute of the day throughout the United States. Each year, 2.9 million people suffer personal injury, and over 30,000 are killed, as the result of a traffic accident. At these rates, it is important that everyone knows what to do in the aftermath of a crash.

If possible, be prepared. It is wise to carry an accident kit that includes pen and paper for collecting information, a camera to take photos of any damage, and a card detailing any medical conditions or allergies that doctors should know if they need to treat you. Traffic cones, road flares, and working hazard lights are other important safety features on busy roads. Be sure you have thoroughly read and understood your auto insurance policy. Not all policies are created equal, and understanding the specifics of your personal coverage will help you make an informed claim. It’s not always possible to be prepared, however, which is why it’s important to memorize a plan of action.

Remember These Important Tips at the Scene of an Accident:

  • Safety first. Unless you have been seriously injured, move cars and people out of the way of traffic. If the car is immobile, then it is safest to remain inside until help arrives.
  • Think ahead for a successful insurance claim. Call your insurance company as soon as possible. Give a detailed account of the collision, vehicle damage, and any personal injury without admitting fault. Take pictures of the damage, and collect names and contact information from everyone involved, including witnesses. You will also need the insurance details of the other person involved in the accident.
  • File an accident report. Even if no officers respond at the scene, you can file a report yourself at a police station or online. This is an important step in backing up a potential insurance claim.
  • Get a comprehensive medical evaluation. Many auto accident injuries do not appear until days after a crash. Have a medical professional document all physical pain and suffering for your own wellbeing, and to ensure you can receive compensation to cover medical expenses.

The Most Important Step: Contact an Experienced Auto Accident Attorney

Securing excellent legal representation is crucial to protecting your rights and reaching a successful settlement. Property damage and personal injury claims require proof of damage or injury, proof of fault or negligence, and a thorough understanding of the law. A personal injury lawyer will lead you through the often overwhelming legal process so you can continue to focus on your health, work, and loved ones.
