What to Do After a Car Accident

Although no one can predict when a car accident will occur, everyone can prepare for it. Keep a recovery checklist in the glove box of your car to help you after an accident. It can advise you on what to do, what to avoid, and how to safeguard your rights. You can use the following guidelines:

  • Maintain your calm and avoid admitting fault. Stay where you are to ensure nobody gets hurt. Before assisting others, you should inspect yourself for injuries.
  • To report your collision, dial 911. Call the police unless the accident was minor, with no injuries or property damage. The police can interview witnesses, collect evidence, and write a report about the incident.
  • Gather information from all parties involved. Take careful notes about the incident, including the weather, road conditions, and any injuries you suffered.
  • Do not, under any circumstances, admit fault, even to the police. Give the officer a candid account of what happened.
  • Seek medical assistance. As soon as possible, consult a specialist or your primary care physician. Receiving immediate medical care can lessen the severity of injuries.
  • Notify your insurance company. California insurance companies have different reporting deadlines for accidents.
  • Speak with an insurance adjuster. You can contact a claims adjuster, but ensure you provide them with all the necessary information. You should only accept a settlement offer or agree to a recorded statement from an insurance company if you have first consulted an attorney.
  • Create a file. In a case file, collect and file all paperwork related to the incident, such as the police report, medical bills, and treatment plans for any injuries.
  • Seek immediate legal counsel from a renowned California car accident attorney.
