Video Summary - Car Accidents
Call the police.
You should exchange information with the other driver, but it is also important to get a police report, which documents the time and location of the collision. It documents the parties involved, and provides an official explanation of how the accident occurred.
Get a medical examination as soon as possible.
After a serious collision, crash victims may report feeling dazed or fatigued. This can cause them to go straight home and lie down. However, prompt medical attention can rule out a serious concussion or other life-threatening injuries that you may be unaware of immediately after the accident.
It's also important to document any injuries as soon as possible after the collision.
Remember that you don't have to give an immediate recorded statement to the claims adjuster.
You are entitled to have the insurance adjuster contact your attorney to arrange for a recorded statement. This will allow you some time to prepare to recount the situation accurately.
