When to Call a Lawyer After a Car Accident

When to Call a Lawyer After a Car Accident

After a car accident, the insurance company may not readily compensate you for your injuries and property damage. In fact, insurance companies are notorious for paying accident victims minimal recovery for their suffering, if anything at all.

If you suffered an injury in a car accident, now is the time to contact a legal advocate.

Without an attorney, you may have difficulty recovering the money that you deserve and need. Medical bills, property damage, doctors’ visits, and ongoing care (such as physical therapy) can create an overwhelming financial burden.

With the right lawyer on your side, you stand a better chance of getting full and fair compensation for your injuries.

Steps to Take after a Car Accident

Safety is your first priority. After an accident, make sure you, passengers, and other drivers are safe. If anyone needs medical attention, administer first aid and call emergency responders.

If everyone is safe, move your vehicle (if possible) from the road.

Like a crime scene, the scene of your accident contains valuable evidence. An experienced car accident lawyer can use this evidence to demonstrate liability and help you recover financial compensation. To help your lawyer, gather the following information at the scene of the accident:

  • Pictures of the scene, including property damage
  • Statements from witnesses (and their contact information)
  • Contact and insurance information for the other drivers
  • A copy of the police report, if possible
  • Contact information for law enforcement at the scene
