What to Do if You're in a Car Accident in Alabama
Immediately after a car accident, you may be in shock, confused, and even in serious pain. However, what you do and say in the minutes, hours, and days after a car accident can have a large impact on your chances of getting compensation for your injuries. After a crash, you should:
- Call 911 – This will summon the police to the scene to make a report, as well as emergency responders to treat injuries. Never assume someone else has already called. When speaking to the police, only state facts; do not make guesses at what happened.
- Exchange information – Collect the insurance information of the other driver and their passengers, as well as the contact information of any witnesses to the accident. Do not make accusations or admissions of fault when speaking to the other driver.
- Take Pictures – Include pictures of both vehicles as well as of the scene of the accident, which can serve as evidence when building your claim.
- Get Medical Attention – If you were not treated at the scene, see a medical professional as soon as possible. This will identify any hidden injuries that may not have been immediately obvious as well as link your injuries to the car accident.
- Contact a Lawyer – An experienced car accident lawyer can improve your chances of getting the compensation you deserve, especially when it comes to proving your accident wasn’t your fault.
