Car accidents are stressful. If you are unsure about when you should call a personal injury lawyer, Jones & Jones PC Attys at Law are here to help. They have provided legal help to countless car and motorcycle accident victims in Andalusia, AL, and throughout Covington County.

Following these steps can make recovering from an accident less stressful:

  • Get Medical Treatment: If anyone suffered injuries in the accident, call for help. Seeking treatment for your injuries create a record your personal injury lawyers can use later as evidence to prove your claim.
  • Contact the Police: Always contact the police after an accident and request emergency assistance when injuries are involved. If you notice the other driver acting suspiciously or that they smell of alcohol, tell the responding officer.
  • Collect Contact Information: Get the names, phone numbers, and addresses of all parties involved, including passengers, witnesses, and the name of the responding officer. Use your phone to take pictures of driver’s licenses, license plates, and insurance cards so you have all the information you’ll need to file a claim.
  • Photograph the Accident Scene: You can use your phone to take pictures of the scene of the accident as well. Photograph any damage to your vehicle and any other vehicles involved. 
  • Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer: If someone has been injured, it’s in your best interest to contact an attorney. After you’ve received medical treatment and spoken with the police, contact Jones & Jones PC Attys at Law.
