Handle The Aftermath Of An Accident With These Steps

You do your best to be a safe, distraction-free driver. You try to maintain your property and keep it safe. Unfortunately, not every driver follows best driving practices, and not every property owner maintains their facilities. As a result, injuries happen. Mr. Rawdon wants you to be prepared to handle the aftermath of an injury. He will help you in your recovery efforts, and work as an advocate to help you receive the money you deserve when pursuing your personal injury claim.

Take Appropriate Steps Post Injury To Promote Safety And Advocacy

Knowing what to do after an accident can be crucial to recovery efforts. The right actions can aid in financial and emotional support as you recover from your injury.

Steps At The Scene

  • Stay at the scene: Regardless of what happened, stay at the scene.
  • Promote safety: Check your passengers and other parties if you are able. If you were in a car collision, you will want to make sure that you are visible to other drivers on the road. This could mean moving your car to the shoulder if possible.
  • Call the police: If you are hurt, call law enforcement. You will want a report filed.
  • Call your lawyer: Call your lawyer and explain what happened. He will advise you on how to talk to the police and other parties involved.
  • Exchange information: You will exchange your insurance and contact information with the other party. Follow your lawyer's advice.

Steps After The Accident

  • Keep hospital records: Keep thorough records of your appointments. Create a list that indexes the date, time and place for all your appointments.
  • Record bills: Keep a running record of all medical charges. Your lawyer will advocate for reimbursement on your behalf. Thorough, easy to track records are helpful.
  • Monitor all correspondence: Make a file for all correspondence with your insurance company and the police. If the conversation is oral, make note of who you spoke with, their contact information and type of transcript of the conversation. Keep all paper or virtual correspondence as well.
  • Communicate with your lawyer: Don't withhold information from your lawyer. Keep him in the loop regarding any correspondence and changing medical needs. He is on your side and wants to hear from you.
