WHAT TO DO AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT:
- CALL THE POLICE AND MAKE A DETAILED ACCIDENT REPORT.
-Making a police report is critical because it helps build the merits of your case, clarify the facts, and lay out the possible insurance policies available to compensate you for your injuries and damages.
-Also It allows a detailed report to be made available for your case and it is an important source of evidence.
- SEEK IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION
-You must seek medical attention immediately if you are injured. Even if you do not feel you are injured seek medical attention immediately because you may not detect your injuries immediately after the accident. Although you may still be in shock and think you are not hurt, you may very well develop symptoms later on.
-You do not want to give the insurance defense lawyers any ammunition against you by not seeking medical treatment, and then later claiming you were injured.
-Please keep in mind you must seek medical treatment within the first 14 days of the accident to secure your $10,000 in personal injury protection benefits under your own insurance policy.
- DO NOT GIVE ANY STATEMENTS, AND TAKE PICTURES OF THE SCENE AND ALL VEHICLES INVOLVED IN THE ACCIDENT.
-Photos are an extremely important source of evidence.
– You do not want to give the insurance defense lawyers any ammunition against you by making any statement without the legal counsel of an attorney.
- IMMEDIATELY CONTACT A PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY
