What Happens After a Car Accident?

What happens after a car accident?After a car accident, you may find yourself faced with many serious questions: “How am I going to pay my bills?” and “Who is going to pay for my medical expenses?”  The experienced personal injury attorneys at our firm can help get you answers to these questions and more.  We can evaluate your case, help you file a claim, and make sure that the insurance company does not short change you on what you deserve as compensation for your personal injuries.

After an accident, it is important that you remain at the scene until you can get information, including name, phone number, license plate number, and insurance information from any other drivers involved in the wreck.  This can eliminate future confusion as to who is at fault and responsible for paying for your damages.  Also, be sure to take note of the road conditions at the time of the accident and the number of people travelling inside each vehicle involved in the collision.  Wait for the police to arrive so that you have a chance to speak to them, and show them how the crash occurred.  Make sure that the police hear your side of the story when preparing their accident report.

It is also important that you closely guard what you say immediately following the accident.  Avoid admitting any liability because it will be used against you by the other driver’s insurance company.
