What To Do After An Accident

Accidents happen when we least expect them. While it is impossible to know when and where your next accident will occur, you can be prepared by knowing what to do when it does. Below you'll find helpful information about what you should do on the scene.

If you've been injured in a car accident, contact our car accident lawyers at 502-348-9972 for legal help with your case.

Call The Police Or 911

If anyone is hurt, call 911 immediately and do not leave the scene. Even if no one is hurt, call the police. Don't just exchange names and phone numbers with the other party.

Collect Information

Get the contact information from the other driver, including their name, address, phone number and insurance company. Also note the color and make and model of the vehicles involved. Get the name of any police officers at the scene and the names and phone numbers of any passengers or witnesses who may have seen the accident. As soon as you get the chance, draw a diagram of the scene, or, better yet, take pictures while on the scene if it is safe to do so. Get pictures of all vehicles involved.

Do Not Discuss Fault

Do not admit fault, and do not blame the other party either. However, if the other party admits fault, make a note of it. Write down exactly what they said or make sure the police officer on the scene includes it in his accident report.

Notify Your Insurance Agent

All insurance policies require you to notify your insurance provider shortly after an accident. Any delays can result in the potential denial of your claim.

Call An Experienced Attorney

Protect your rights and call an attorney with experience in auto accidents and personal injury claims. Deciding fault can be very complicated, and the insurance companies don't have your best interests in mind. Get the attorneys of McCoy & Sparks, PLLC, on your side before you make any statements or agree to anything. It's our job to make sure you get the settlement you deserve.
