What to Do After an Auto Accident

The moment immediately after an auto accident is the first moment that you can help empower your future claim. By knowing what to do following a collision, you can decrease your own liability, increase the liability of the negligent motorist, and also increase how much compensation you can get.

Follow these basic steps after being in any auto accident:

  1. Call for help: In California, the police are supposed to be summoned to any accident that causes an injury or extensive vehicle damage. Calling for emergency responders is therefore necessary for most serious accidents. Law enforcement officials can also direct traffic away from the accident scene to protect others. When the police and paramedics arrive, get any copies of reports they make for use later.
  2. Collect information: You need to record all pertinent information, such as license plates, driver’s licenses, insurance policy numbers, and more. Take photographs if you can of the scene from multiple angles. Eyewitness testimonies are also a good source of evidence to improve your claim.
  3. Get medical attention: Do not hesitate to get any medical attention you need after the accident, whether the paramedics need to treat you or if you just want to go to your doctor for a checkup. If you refuse any and all medical treatment, it could increase your liability when it comes to paying medical costs, as you might be inadvertently worsening your injuries.
  4. Contact a lawyer: Before talking to your insurance company and telling them about the accident, which you must do sooner or later, you may want to contact an attorney first. This will ensure that you do not say the wrong thing to your own insurance provider and increase your liability.
