What To Do After A Car Accident in Fresno County

No one can predict a car accident, but you can prepare for one. A car accident checklist in your glove box can help you stay calm and organized after a car crash. It can tell you what to do, what not to do, and how best to protect your rights. When in doubt, call us at (888) 488-1391. You aren’t alone after a serious collision.

Whether you are the injured victim or the family of a killed loved one, here’s what to do after a car accident:

  1. Get to a Safe Location: Move disabled vehicles to the side of the road if you can. Put your emergency flashers on to help prevent further collisions. Get somewhere safe to wait for the police.
  2. Stay Calm: Stay on the scene and make sure everyone is okay. Check yourself for injuries first, and then check others. Remain calm and do not admit fault.
  3. Call 911: Call the police to report your accident. They can document the incident, gather information, and make it part of an official record. In case you are having trouble getting the accident report, our car accident lawyers in California can help you communicate with the authorities.
  4. Exchange Information: Swap names, phone numbers, and insurance information with the other driver(s) involved in the accident. Take photos of the vehicles, license plates, and other vital details.
  5. Do Not Admit Fault: Again, do not admit fault, even to the police. Stick only to what happened when speaking with a police officer. Be as detailed as possible in your description of the collision.
  6. Seek Medical Attention: Go to the hospital or your primary doctor immediately. Immediate medical care can help reduce the damage you suffer from injuries. Tests and scans can identify internal injuries that may not show symptoms yet.
  7. Report to Your Insurance Company: Most insurers have time limits for how soon you must report an accident in California. Call quickly and follow the agent’s directions for reporting your crash.
  8. Speak to Insurance Adjusters: As soon as the day of your accident, you may receive a phone call from the other party’s insurance company. You may speak to the claims adjuster, but do not give away any more information than is necessary. Do not record a statement or accept an insurance settlement offer until you speak to an attorney.
  9. Create a File: Keep accident-related documents together and organized. Your file should include a copy of the police report, medical bills, the other driver’s information, injury treatment plans, and any other documents you’ve collected regarding the incident.
  10. Call Our Car Accident Law Firm at (888) 488-1391. We offer free consultations so that you can discuss your car crash without risk or obligation. Our California car accident lawyers can determine whether your case has merit, help you talk to insurance companies, and assist you in filing a personal injury claim if necessary.
