What should I do after my car accident?

You should always consider safety first. While it's best to leave your car exactly where it is, if possible, to preserve evidence, you may need to move the car to a safe location if it is posing a hazard to others. Similarly, you should NOT move your car if it would be hazardous to others or if your car appears to be disabled. While ideally you should not move your car after an accident, if you have to move it for any of the above-mentioned reasons, you should first try to take photographs of how the cars looked at the time of the crash. Of course, take photographs only if it's safe to do so.

Call the police. Having an officer there will help protect your rights, as he or she will create an official record of your car accident. The officer will obtain statements from witnesses and the other driver or drivers. The police report can prove valuable in presenting evidence of possible negligence to the insurance company.

Even if you think you aren’t hurt, have a doctor, nurse or emergency medical technician (EMT) evaluate you as soon as possible. One big mistake many accident victims make is trying to "tough it out." If you ignore going to the doctor or fail to follow a doctor's orders, you are sending a message to the insurance company that your injuries are minor or non-existent. That means you may get less compensation for your claim than you would if you seek treatment immediately and diligently follow the doctor's orders.

Most insurance companies require their policyholders to inform them of an accident, regardless of fault, but if you have concerns about contacting your insurance company and how that might affect your rates in the future or your accident claim, you should contact a personal injury lawyer first for a free consultation. Keep in mind that you should never speak about the accident with the adjuster for the at-fault party's insurance company. If you are contacted by an adjuster from the other party's insurance company, you can politely tell the adjuster that he or she can speak with your attorney.

Should I call a lawyer after my car accident?

Yes! Contacting a lawyer might be the smartest thing you do after your car accident. When you have a lawyer on your side, fighting for your rights, you can take an aggressive stance and fight for the compensation that's rightfully yours.

For example, a defective part on your car may have been a factor in the crash, which means the company that made that part could be liable. If you were involved in an accident with a truck, the trucking company may be responsible for paying for your losses. In a drunk driving accident, the establishment that over-served the drunk driver might be responsible. Each accident is unique, which is why it's wise to have an experienced attorney at your side who can conduct a comprehensive investigation and determine liability.
