After an Auto Accident, what should you do next?

by: Maricon Williams
Accident comes in the most unexpected manner. All of a sudden, you will just feel the collision of another vehicle into yours. You hear the screech of the tires and the driver instantly loses his control. Your adrenalin soars with your temper. Youíre hurt and aching. Youíre fearful at the same time confused. One question revolves around your brain Ė what shall I do next?

When confronted with this dilemma, the first thing that you should do is to help the injured and to avert extra injury. If necessary, you can park your car in a safe location to keep away from further accident. Another, you can warn other drivers about said collision by using flares and hazard lights. You can call 911, if you have seen casualties. If you have suffered serious injuries, seek assistance from people around. You can ask them to take you to the nearest hospital, if it is necessary to your condition. Cooperate with the police and paramedics to make the situation easy and manageable.

In collisions like this, it is advisable to gather evidence. You can jot down the names, contact numbers and addresses of both the drivers involved and the witnesses to the accident. Take note also of the driverís license and insurance information of the drivers. You can also ask the witnesses to cooperate fully with the police. Furthermore, you can ask for a copy of the police report. Another addition to your compilation of evidence is photographs. You can take pictures of damaged vehicles involved in the accident you can also record other vital information in connection to the collision. Medical certificates are also necessary in proving the injury, thus, it is advisable to get one if you sought medical attendance.

If someone was injured in the accident or if it involves a vehicle amounting to more than $500, you should report the same to the Department of Motor Vehicles in a period of not less than 10 days. Report should also be made to insurance companies. You must also institute a claim against the other driverís insurance company for damages.

In connection with the claim, bear in mind that it is advantageous to seek a personal injury attorney to make the process easy and smooth-flowing. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you yield fair compensation regarding your loss. If the insurance company does not like to compensate you, then, the personal injury lawyer can aggressively pursue a suit on your behalf in order for you to get the right compensation.
