What to Do After a Car Accident
The main component of any car accident claim is proving liability. While
it may be clear to you that you are not to blame for the collision, it
might not be obvious to anyone else. In order to enhance your chances
of securing compensation and avoiding misplaced liability, there are a
few things you should always do after being in an auto accident.
Call emergency responders: If someone has been injured or the damage is significant, call the authorities.
Paramedics can provide lifesaving treatment at the site of the accident
and give you a medical report to use in your claim later. Police officers
can detain drunk drivers, direct traffic away from the debris the accident
scattered across lanes, and provide a police statement that can also be
used as evidence to your advantage.
Get evidence: The evidence of the car crash is all around you immediately following
a collision but do you know how to gather it? Put simply, you can use
your smartphone’s camera to take pictures that will provide the
framework for your claim. Build atop what you can show through photographs
with eyewitness testimonies.
Do not apologize: Insurance companies will do anything they can to take liability off their
client and put it back onto you. An apology or “I’m sorry
this happened” can be misconstrued into an admission of guilt, pushing
partial liability into your lap.
