After Your Car Accident
Documentation is one of the most important things after a car accident. Be sure to take pictures of the accident from multiple angles, and to obtain contact, insurance, and vehicle information from all involved drivers. If there are witnesses to the accident, get their contact information as well, and obtain the badge number or employee ID of all attending emergency personnel.
Following your car accident, get a full medical evaluation from a trusted physician. Some injuries take time to show symptoms but can be debilitating if not detected and treated early. After an accident, you should seek medical attention. Even if you feel okay, you may have suffered an injury that is not immediately apparent. A thorough medical examination creates a record of how the accident affected your physical wellbeing.
During this time, you will probably be contacted by the other driver’s insurance company. Do not discuss your injuries or the facts of the accident.
As soon as possible, you should contact our attorneys at Harvey L. Walner & Associates. We can investigate your accident and determine who is at fault for your injury. You have a right to pursue compensation if the other driver was negligent and caused your injury as a result. In some cases, a driver is not at fault at all. The malfunctioning or faulty components of a defective vehicle can lead to catastrophic auto accidents and injuries.
Our experienced attorneys will listen to the details of your case free of charge and inform you of the appropriate next steps.
