Car Accident Attorney Offers Do’s & Don’ts

What to Do

After an accident, immediately call 911 or ask someone else to do it for you. Remain at the scene or as close to it as safety permits, until law enforcement and medical professionals arrive. Take pictures and video of the scene and damages, especially anything that may have been a factor in the accident—such as defects on the other’s person’s vehicle or the driver’s impaired conditions. Timely seek appropriate medical attention for yourself and all other passengers. When the dust has settled, contact your insurance company and a car accident attorney.    

What Not to Do

Of course, don’t make any admissions of fault—even saying, “I’m sorry,” can be used against you.Never talk to the other party’s insurance company – that is the job of your attorney.
