How you can protect your interests after a car accident

The aftermath of a car accident can be overwhelming. From your time at the accident scene to the days and weeks following the crash, it is always smart to think about ways you can protect yourself. As a victim of an accident, it is in your interests to know what you should do next and how to move forward after this type of traumatic event. 

You cannot predict when an accident might happen, but you can prepare yourself in case of a contingency in the future. Perhaps your accident happened a few days or weeks ago, and you are at a loss as to what you should be doing to put your life back together. No matter the details of your individual situation, you have the right to seek guidance and support as you fight for a beneficial outcome.

While on the scene 

What happens at the scene of the accident matters. In fact, there are certain steps you can take to start laying the foundation for a potential civil claim in the future. Immediately after an accident, of course, you will want to check on everyone involved and call the police.

If you are able, it may be smart to take pictures of the scene, including pictures of the cars and other details. Additionally, you will want to try and gather contact information from other parties involved in the accident. This includes the driver of other vehicles, but also witnesses who saw what happened.

The days and weeks after

If you suffered injuries in the accident, it is smart to seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if you do not think your injuries are that bad. Getting medical care will establish documentation and a record of your injuries in case of a civil claim at some point.

It can also be useful to seek a valuation of the damage to your personal property and other losses you experienced. This step can ensure you seek the right amount of damages through a claim against the liable parties.

Your recovery can start now

You do not have to walk through the aftermath of your accident alone. You are entitled to an explanation of your legal options, and you can take this step as soon as possible after an accident. If the negligence or reckless actions of another driver were the reason for your pain and suffering, California law allows you to seek appropriate damages through a personal injury lawsuit.
