2. Get a police report

A police reports is a piece of crucial evidence that can be a decisive factor in your case


3. Receive the contact of any witnesses

Even after the crash,
there are steps you can take to further protect yourself:


Go see the doctor

even if you do not show any immediate symptoms of pain after the accident, chances are, aftereffects from the carash will appear as time passes. It is better to seek treatment immediately and regularly after the accident to help you get the most effective treatment and strengthen your case.


Record the damage

Keep a record of everything that is related to the incident. Anything as the potential to be evidence that can strengthen your case, even if it does not seem like it at the time. Make sure to store it all in a place that is easily accessible when needed.


Stay quite

After an accident occurs, you will be getting many calls from various places, especially insurance companies. Be sure to limit what information you are sharing with these insurance companies, even if it is your own insurance company. These companies are not necessarily always seeking something that is in your best interest, so it is best to share minimal information until you hire an attorney.


Seek an attorney

Insurance companies can take advantage of people that do not have an attorney to defend them after the accident. Seek professional help as soon as possible after an accident so we can do our best to resove the case.
