What to Do Immediately After a Car Accident to Help Your Injury Claim

• Keep a copy of your insurance card, driver’s license and registration with you or in your vehicle at all times
• Stay at the scene. Take a deep breath and try not to panic. Call 911 and also ask for an ambulance if anyone may be injured. Do not admit fault.
• If possible, take photos of the scene and safely move the vehicles out of traffic
• Take notes and preserve all evidence. Get the information of all witnesses and other people involved in the accident. Make sure to get the insurance company name and policy number of the person at fault in the accident.
• Go in the ambulance to the hospital if you believe you are injured.
• Contact your insurance company and notify them of the accident. Do not agree to a recorded statement.
• Do not delay in getting medical treatment – your attorney can schedule you with a doctor near where you live
• Contact a qualified personal injury attorney immediately so they can order the police report, coordinate medical treatment, request your hospital records and initiate the claim against the proper parties before your rights are lost. It is important to get your attorney involved immediately so your rights are not compromised.
