Our attorneys recommend taking the following steps:
- Call the police. Make sure police document your accident. An officer will make a report that may include statements from the other drivers and witnesses. The more evidence you have, the better - especially if your accident was caused by somebody else's reckless or negligent behavior.
- Gather information. Exchange insurance information with all other drivers. Get the full names, addresses, and phone numbers of witnesses. Take photos and write down details about the accident scene. Was there a stop sign? Did the other car leave skid marks? Was it raining? Be as thorough as possible. If the other driver admits fault, be sure to write down what he or she says. Ask the other driver to give a statement to the police officer.
- Seek medical attention. Even if you feel fine, you may have injuries that might not become apparent until days, weeks, or months after your accident. Don't take any chances. Visit a doctor or emergency room immediately and be sure to continue with follow-up appointments.
- Contact an attorney. You may only have one shot at justice - even if the cause of your accident seems clear cut. Make your case count. Contact an experienced attorney at Gary Martin Hays & Associates today.
