Steps To Take After A Crash

We are here to help victims and their families after an accident. We also believe it is important to help you understand the steps to take after a crash before it happens. Understanding what to do can help you stay calm and help protect your rights if you end up filing a claim or lawsuit.

Here is a list of what steps to take after a car crash:

  1. Checks to make sure everyone is ok and call for emergency medical attention if necessary.
  2. Call and report the accident to the police.
  3. Do not leave the scene of the crash.
  4. Exchange information with all drivers and get information from any witnesses.
  5. Take pictures of damage to your vehicle and the scene of the accident.
  6. Document your injuries and medical treatment. This will help when you file a claim.
  7. Report the accident to your insurance company, but do not sign any settlement until you have talked to an attorney.
  8. Talk to a lawyer. We will protect your rights and make sure you are being treated fairly by the insurance company. We will also make sure all options are explored to help you get the compensation you deserve.
