If you are involved a car accident, there a few steps that you can take to ensure that you are properly compensated for any losses:
- First, prior to anything else, confirm the safety of your passengers and anyone involved in the accident. Call the paramedics immediately if medical attention is required. Seeking attention promptly is important for the success of any claims.
- Any monetary claims for injury to the body are dependent on a thorough medical record, so keep a record of all hospital visits and any diagnoses made by a physician as well as medicines prescribed for treatment. It is sometimes helpful to keep a journal detailing symptoms or pain and treatments.
- Next, call the police and have officers sent to the scene to ensure that a police report is created. This is very vital to determining who is at fault for the accident. Obtain the name, address, driver’s license number, vehicle licenses, and insurance information from all drivers involved in the incident as well as any witnesses at the scene. Contact your insurance company as soon as possible to inform them that an accident has occurred. Your automobile insurance company will assign you a claim number and a claims adjuster to handle the aspects of your claim.
If you can take photos of the accident scene, include the vehicles involved and any other obvious evidence such as skid marks or debris. Do not make any statements to the other drivers that could be used against you later on.
Engaging in claim settlement negotiations can be difficult. If you feel you need assistance in managing your claim, contacting an experienced personal injury attorney can help ease you through the process. Insurance companies rarely give those who are insured the full value of their claim, here is where an attorney can help you. As an injury can be a life-altering event, an attorney can ensure you are compensated for damages that you have sustained as a result of the accident.
