Auto accidents have serious consequences. Not only do some injuries last a lifetime, but the time, cost, and stress of recouping your losses can be overwhelming. Often, those involved in an auto accident don’t know what to do next or aren’t sure how to recover the losses resulting from another’s negligence. Often the injuries sustained in an accident aren’t recognized until weeks or months after the auto accident. These problems can be compounded when an injured party waits too long to file a claim. Luckily, the experienced Crown Point auto accident attorneys at Arshad, Pangere & Warring are here to serve your auto accident needs.
When you’re involved in an accident, you may experience strong effects of adrenaline. This can cause you to forget some of the very important steps you should take after the accident. Being prepared and knowing what to do before the auto accident can help you remain focused on the tasks at hand. Make sure to consider the following steps in detail so you can be prepared if you are involved in an auto accident.
The first thing you’ll want to do is check for any apparent injuries. If you find injuries be sure to let someone on the scene know so they can seek medical attention on your behalf. Conversely, if you are able, call 911 and get an ambulance on route immediately. If, after scanning for injuries, none are located, be sure to move your vehicle to a safe area if possible. If the vehicle is disabled, you’ll want to leave the vehicle in place and place cones or flares to alert other drivers. Once everyone is in a safe area, be sure to document the scene of the accident. If possible, get photos and videos of the scene from all possible angles. If possible, take photos of the license plate and VIN number of each car involved. Next, make sure to collect the information of all other drivers, passengers, and witnesses to the accident.
Once the scene of the accident is clear, you should seek medical attention even if there aren’t any apparent injuries. Your doctor may be able to locate internal or skeletal injuries that aren’t immediately visible to you. These medical conditions can last a lifetime and may be vital to you recovering what you are owed after an auto accident. Finally, you’ll want to seek advice from an experienced auto accident lawyer.
