What you do immediately after a car accident can have a great effect on the outcome of your case.
Time Lost is Evidence Lost
It is crucial that you do not wait to gather as much evidence as possible. If you can get photos of your accident, and the position of the vehicles involved, and any damage shown, this would be ideal. If a witness can get the photos to support what they saw, that would also be very valuable. Gather as many witnesses as you can, as soon as you can. Memories fade over time and important evidence may be lost.
Document Everything After a Car Accident
It is important to keep all medical receipts, all doctor bills, and any other expenses related to the accident. This includes keeping receipts for medications, co-pays, chiropractor visits, etc. Later, this documentation could help prove that you were injured, and that the injuries were serious enough to warrant compensation.
Don’t Sign Anything Until You Talk To A Lawyer
After a car accident, many people are approached by an insurance adjuster who pretends to be their friend. Nothing could be further from the truth. The insurance company pays that person’s salary – the same insurance company that has to reimburse you for your losses in the accident. It is in the insurance company’s best interest to pay you as little as possible, and we see injury victims presented with a low-ball offer from an insurance company all the time. Don’t stand for it, get the compensation you deserve.

Get the compensation you deserve, not what the insurance company is offering.
People who hire an injury lawyer after an accident receive consistently larger settlement amounts than those who represent themselves against a big insurance company. Insurance companies know this, and they prey upon your situation, that’s why they present a settlement offer quickly or try to get you to sign a waiver.
