After a car accident, there are initial steps you can take that will positively impact both your safety and the quality of your case.
First, contact and wait for law enforcement officers to investigate the accident.
Second, thoroughly document the scene by taking pictures and exchanging insurance information with any and all other parties involved.
Next, upon leaving the scene of the accident, you should seek medical treatment and have a doctor evaluate your injuries. Often times, a person’s adrenaline prohibits him or her from realizing the severity of the injuries immediately. Do not be preoccupied with whether or not your health insurance will cover your medical expenses.
Document your treatment and recovery over time.
Finally, do not discuss and provide a recorded statement to anyone before speaking with a reputable attorney.
Automobile accidents happen each and every day across Georgia. The causes of auto accidents vary immensely, but when you are involved in an accident that is attributable to the negligence or reckless behavior of the other driver, you should be compensated for the harm that they have caused you. Some common acts of negligence include:
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence
- Reckless driving
- Driving while drowsy.
