If you or a loved one are in a car accident, Grunau Law Office PLLC, (877) 291-6166, stresses the importance of having legal representation right away. Use these helpful tips if you are in a car accident:
Seek immediate medical attention, even if it takes time* or you do not think it is necessary. When you are hurt, your body may be in shock. Having a sound medical perspective can be helpful in an accident matter.
Contact the police or troopers to file an accident report right away. A police report is helpful to establish an insurance claim for physical or mechanical damages.
Collect any witness evidence or information, such as photos, names, phone numbers of anyone who says they saw the accident occur.
You are not obligated to speak with the other driver’s car insurance company or adjusters. Likewise, you have no obligation to give any type of recorded statement.
*Car accidents can give drivers and passengers trauma-related injuries that may go unseen at the time of the crash. These may even go undetected in the days, weeks, and months following an accident. Having the proper notes, exams, and documents is helpful when you choose to file a personal injury claim.
