What to Do After an Automobile Accident

If you have been hurt in an automobile accident, you should know what to do in order to protect yourself and your legal rights. First, call the police (and paramedics if necessary). You also want to follow up with the investigating police agency to ensure they have your version of events leading up to the crash. Unfortunately, many times the police do not do a thorough accident scene investigation. It is common for people taken from the automobile accident scene not to be interviewed at all. This can result in the police recording only the version of the auto accident given by the negligent driver who caused the accident.

If you have a camera and are not injured, try to photograph the accident scene prior to moving the automobile (only if safe to do so). Also be sure to record your injuries throughout the healing process. Finally, it may be necessary to interview any and all witnesses to the accident and obtain from these witnesses affidavits concerning the accident. This is especially important in cases in which liability is not clear. If the at fault party or his or her insurance company is blaming you for the accident, please call or email us today. It is important to speak with witnesses while their memories are fresh.

Remember, if you have been injured in an automobile accident it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible! If treatment is delayed, the defendant may argue that it was not his or her negligent driving that caused your injury, but rather something that occurred between the time of the automobile accident and your visit to the doctor. Also, keep in mind that the earlier your lawyer becomes involved in your auto accident case, the better. We offer a free case analysis of your auto accident case, so call or email us today. The lawyers at the Kaudy Law Firm are experts in handling automobile accident cases and are here to help.
