If you've ever been involved in an automobile accident, you know that right after it happens, your adrenaline's going, and you're feeling so many emotions, you may not immediately know how to react. David Greene from Greene & Phillips wants to make sure you're prepared, because it's a good idea to always be prepared for anything.
Before you anything else, pull out your cell phone and dial 911. David Greene says calling the police is a way of protecting yourself. Filing an accident report can help when you're trying to prove your claim. It contains important data that will aid you in your claim against the insurance company.
Most cell phones have a built in camera, so it's smart to take pictures of the scene and also look for witnesses. The more evidence you have, the better. Pictures and witnesses can help paint a better picture of what happened than what the police report alone can offer.
Of course, if you feel like you've been injured, you'll want to see a doctor as soon as possible. David Greene says if there is damage to either vehicle, it's likely that there is damage to your body. And when you see a doctor, be sure to complete your medical treatment plan the doctor prescribes for you.
If you get a call from the other driver's insurance company after the accident, Greene says you are not required by law to talk to with anyone there. He added that it's definitely aq bad idea to talk with them without your attorney present, and it can often hurt your case. Your personal injury attorney can help you deal with insurance companies, help make sure you get the full value of your claim, and help you make sure all your medical bills are paid.
