What to Do After a Motor Vehicle Crash
Call the police - A police officer will write a traffic collision report which can then be used in your case to establish liability by making record of the negligence of the at-fault party. In addition, the traffic collision report usually records your injuries and damage to your vehicle.
Collect information - Write down any important information such as names, phone numbers, license plate numbers, location of the accident, insurance information, and witness statements. If possible, take photos of any injuries and damage. All of these things will help your chances of winning your case.
Seek medical attention - Auto accident victims are often unaware of any injuries immediately after the accident. Symptoms of whiplash, spinal injuries, and concussions may not appear until days after the accident. Be sure to see your doctor as soon as possible to avoid any injuries becoming worse. Medical documents and reports that detail your injuries may also help your case and act as evidence that the crash caused you pain and suffering.
Contact your insurance - Some insured motorists are required by their insurance provider to provide an immediate accident report to get coverage for injuries and property damage. Be cautious when dealing with an insurance company, it is best to consult with an accident attorney before giving out any detailed information or signing any documents.

What Not to Do After a Motor Vehicle Crash
Do not engage in an argument with the at-fault party - You should stay calm and focus on making sure everyone involved in the crash is okay as well as gathering the necessary information needed for an insurance claim and lawsuit.
Do not admit liability for the crash - Whatever is said after the accident cannot be taken back and while it is difficult to think clearly after a crash, it is important to avoid saying anything that could hurt your case.
Insurance Companies & Auto Accidents
Victims of auto accidents are usually not given fair settlement offers from insurance companies. Accidents involving cars or trucks usually involve tedious and long discussions with insurance companies that likely have a team of attorneys ready to fight against claims. Therefore, it is important that the injured party speak with an attorney to determine a plan of action.
Insurance companies want to resolve claims quickly and most likely know exactly what your claim is worth, but you may not. They will take advantage of this fact and try to give you a low settlement offer.
You may be tempted to deal with insurance adjusters on your own, but a specialized attorney can help facilitate the process and negotiate a better settlement offer. At the very minimum, an attorney will be able to determine if the insurance company’s offer is reasonable.
