What do I do after a car accident?

What should you do after a car accident depends on whether you're at the scene of the accident or things that you could do later on. At the scene of the accident, obviously, you must stop, you must try to report it to the police as soon as possible and exchange information with the other driver. It's important if you can do it, to take pictures at the scene of damage to your car, damage to the other vehicle. It's important that if you are seriously injured, that you ask the police at the scene to obtain medical assistance for you.

If you leave the scene of an accident and you are not feeling well, then, again, it's important that you obtain medical care as soon as possible. It's also important that you report this accident to your own insurance company as soon as possible to activate necessary benefits that you might have such as no-fault benefits that will pay for your care. I say your insurance company for a very important reason.

It's also important that you not speak to the other people's insurance company. That you don't speak to investigators that might knock on your door and ask you for information or might call you on the telephone. It's important that you consult an attorney without delay to tell you what your legal rights are and to protect those rights. Call us today for a free no obligation consultation.
