What To Do Following an Accident

Following a car accident, you’re likely to be frazzled, even if no major injuries are sustained. In the hecticness of an accident, it can be hard to know what to do next.

By being aware of the steps to take, you can best protect yourself and your interests:

  • Seek medical attention – The first thing to do is to seek medical attention both for yourself and anyone else involved in the accident. Even if it doesn’t appear like there are serious injuries, call the police and have them send an EMT immediately. Make sure to keep any medical records as well.
  • Jot down notes about your experienceYou will want to jot down as many details as you can. 
  • Gather as much evidence as possibleEvidence may include taking pictures of the crash sites from multiple angles, gathering information/testimonies from witnesses, and securing medical and police records. A lawyer can also help you with this step. 
  • Contact an experienced attorneyIf you were injured in an accident caused by someone else, reach out to an attorney for a consultation on whether or not you may be eligible for compensation.

Compensation Available Following an Accident

In personal injury cases, it’s pretty common for insurance companies to settle before the case reaches court. Unfortunately, they often try to undercut the plaintiff. 

Because of the bad faith tactics insurance companies use, it’s essential to obtain the guidance and support of a car accident attorney who can help to ensure you obtain maximum compensation for the damages you have suffered.

Compensation may be secured for the following damages: 


  • Property damages 
  • Present and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Out-of-pocket expenses
  • Attorney and court fees
  • Pain and suffering 
  • Psychological damage
  • Compensation for a loss in the quality of life
  • Funeral costs in the case of wrongful death

Enlisting the help of one of our attorneys will ensure that you receive the compensation and justice you deserve. Not only will our attorneys make the entire process easier, but they will also fight on your behalf to ensure your compensation will cover both economic and non-economic damages. 

By applying legal pressure and negotiating with insurance companies, we’re able to help you receive the settlement you need to cover all damages.
