Steps To Take After An Accident
Knowing what to do after an auto accident can be difficult, especially when you just received considerable injuries. When you can act on your own after an accident, the actions you take can have a major impact on your injury claim.
Here at Penn & Seaborn, LLC, we know how hard it can be to get the compensation you deserve for your injuries. When a single mistake can reduce or eliminate the compensation you receive, what can you do to protect yourself? We want to make things easier for you by offering you some early guidance after your accident with these tips:
Call For Help
After your accident, determine if you need to contact the police to help clear the scene of the accident of debris and also obtain a police report for your claim. If you or anyone else needs medical attention, call an ambulance immediately.
If you are able to move about the scene of the accident safely, you have a chance to collect resources for your injury claim. Take as many pictures and videos of the scene of the accident as possible to help illustrate what happened at the moment leading up to the accident. You can even gather recordings of witness testimony to help your claim.
Collect Contact Information
The license, insurance and contact information of the other driver are critical in collecting compensation from them. However, before exiting your vehicle, collect the license plate and vehicle description of the car that hit you right away, in case they try to flee the scene of the accident.
