What To Do After An Accident

When you are injured in an auto accident, you cannot be blamed for being unable to think clearly. However, since most of us will be involved in an accident at some point in our lives, it would be wise to know in advance what to do, to begin protection of your rights.

As your lawyer, we offer sound advice on what to do after an accident, including notifying us of your injury. We take it from there — investigating what led to your auto accident, the nature of your injuries and identity of the negligent motorist who caused it.

The Law Office of Robert A. Miller excels at dealing with insurance companies and negotiating settlements that financially compensate motor vehicle accident injury victims like you.

Just a few of the many things you should do, if you are able to after your car or truck accident, are:

  • Call for emergency assistance
  • Avoid moving your car or changes to the accident scene until police arrive
  • Get the names, addresses and license plate numbers of the other driver or drivers, as well as a description of each vehicle
  • Exchange insurance information
  • Locate any passengers or witnesses, and collect their information
  • Take pictures of the accident scene
  • Get a police report, even if you are not injured
  • Ask where your car is going, if it is being towed
  • If you are injured, contact the Law Office of Robert A. Miller before talking to your own insurance company
  • Save notes about the accident and records of hospital or doctor visits that prove your injury
  • Make notes on your post-accident injury healing experience
