Experienced Car Accident Lawyers Who Will Fight for You
Car accidents can have serious consequences, including life-changing injuries, loss of work capacity, loss of income, and overwhelming hospital and doctor bills. Collisions, more times than not, will occur suddenly and without warning. While in your routine, you become the victim of someone else’s carelessness. Your life is turned upside down, and activities, routines, and responsibilities that you used to do can no longer be accomplished or done as well.
Auto insurance companies typically instruct their policyholder to be prepared for the possibility of a car accident. The Auto Insurance Company recommendations list includes:
- Protective bag for auto insurance documents/cards
- Your insurance card
- Vehicle registration information
- Index card with a list of emergency contacts (this can also be stored on your cell phone under the name “ICE” – In Case of Emergency)
- Index card with a list of medications, allergies, or special conditions
- Notepad and pen (smartphones have an application to take notes as well)
- First-aid supplies or kit
- Jumper cables
- Towel rags or paper towels
- Trash bags
- Disposable camera (or can use your cell phone if it has one.)
What to do if you are in a car accident?
Seek Medical Attention First
Questions emerge about what to do first. If you are hurt, we recommend that you go to a medical physician for evaluation and care (either through an emergency room or a personal physician).
Information to gather from the accident
- Other driver’s name and contact information
- Other driver’s insurance company name, policy number, and phone number
- Other driver’s vehicle information, including make, model, year, and license number
- Description of damage to vehicles involved
- Photos of vehicle (full view, damage, and license plate)
- Witness names and contact information
- Statements of the other driver and witnesses, especially if volunteered descriptions on how the collision occurred.
