After an automobile accident time is critical and you need to know what to do!
First, make sure you and your loved ones get any medical attention they
need but following these simple steps will help you develop a case should
you or your loved ones get injured and sue the other driver.
Stop your car after the accident
In New York State if you are involved in a car accident you must report
it to the Police. This is important since the Police will make a report
and we can use that report to investigate the accident.
Call for Medial Attention
Call for an ambulance and comfort any injured person until help arrives.
If you are injured do not decline medical attention. It is always better
to have a professional tend to a potential injury immediately than to
wait days for medical help. When the ambulance arrives be sure to make
a note about what ambulance company arrived at the accident scene.
Get Information about the Car Accident
Take pictures of the road, cars and the damage. You can never take too
many pictures at the accident scene. Also, take pictures of any visible
injures to yourself and/or loved ones. Get the names and contact information
of any witnesses to the accident. Don't let potential witnesses just
Never Admit to Any Fault - accidental or otherwise
The most important part of the accident is
NEVER admit you did
anything wrong. Do not discuss the accident with any witnesses.
Take Notes on the Accident
As soon as possible make some notes regarding how the auto accident happened
to refresh your memory at a later date.
