What Steps Should You Take After A Car Accident?
When you are in a car accident, you may have a hard time thinking clearly in the moment. If you are injured in that accident, you may find it even more difficult. The following is a list of steps to take after a car accident:
Report the accident: Call 911, even if you don’t think the accident was serious. Alabama law requires you to report any accident that results in injury or over $250 in damages.
Exchange information with the other driver: Make sure to exchange names, phone numbers and insurance information. Collect information from any witnesses and take pictures, if you are able.
Seek medical help: If you have a serious injury, this should be your first priority, of course. Even if you don’t think your injuries are serious, however, see a doctor as soon as you are able. Many injuries take time to fully develop.
File a claim with your insurance company: If you believe the other driver was at fault, you should also file the claim with your insurance company.
Contact a lawyer: Call an experienced personal injury attorney like Joshua James to discuss the merits of your case.
