What should you do after a car accident? Part 1

You may think that what needs to happen after an accident is obvious, get their insurance information. You are right, however, gathering information is not your priority after an accident. This post will go over some of the things you should do just after an accident, for your safety and the safety of everyone else.

Car accidents are jarring and unexpected. You will experience a rush of adrenaline which will cloud your critical thinking skills. Remember to take a breath and relax. Take a few moments if you have to, to center yourself. Once you are sufficiently calm, check yourself and your passengers for injuries. Even minor accidents can result in severe injuries.

Next, check the other driver and other people involved in the crash. If anyone's injuries are severe, call an ambulance. Even if you do not believe you were injured, you should still see a doctor within the next few days. You could have suffered a serious injury but just not know it yet.

Next, you need to move the cars off to the side of the road. Your cars are road hazards and could cause another accident. Finally, once everyone's safety and health is confirmed, you can begin gathering information.

If you were hit by a negligent driver, you should call a lawyer for assistance. There are a myriad of issues that insurance may not be able to resolve; the biggest one is if the person who hit you has too low of a policy to cover your injuries. A lawyer can review your case and identify the best way to get you the compensation you deserve.
