What to Do After an Accident
Accidents occur within the blink of an eye. It is a petrifying and frustrating moment. Try not to panic and remain calm. If you or anyone else has sustained an injury as a result of the accident, it is important to follow these steps:
Remain calm and assess the situation and your surroundings. Get yourself and everyone else involved in the accident out of traffic, and if you or anyone else is injured, do not decline medical attention. If someone is seriously injured, don’t touch them. Just wait until qualified medical help arrives.
Call the police. In serious accidents, there may be significant property damage, catastrophic injuries, or even death. In these incidents, make a police report be filed, and get the names and badge numbers of the officers.
Exchange insurance information. Write down the license numbers, make, and models of all cars involved in the accident. Exchange insurance and identity information with the other drivers.
Take pictures. Make sure you have photographic evidence of the scene, including the other vehicles involved and the area of the accident (streets, signs, traffic lights, etc.).
Do not converse with the other party’s insurance company at any time. If they call you, refer them to your attorney. They are not your friend. Their job is to minimize your compensation.
Do not wait!! Hire an attorney in Los Angeles. An experienced lawyer can help you maximize your recovery if you were injured, and provide
peace of mind.
