If you were involved in a car accident due to someone else’s carelessness or negligence, you have the right to obtain compensation for your injuries and damages. Here are some tips for preserving your rights to obtain compensation after a car accident:

Document the accident scene: If possible, document as much as you can about the accident scene immediately after the accident. Strong evidence is the key to receiving fair compensation.

Talk to witnesses: If there were any witnesses and if you are able to talk with them, get their contact information. Ask them questions related to the accident and if they would be able to make written or verbal statements. The more information you obtain from the witnesses, the stronger your claim will be.

Call the police: Even if you had a minor injury, call the police. A police report will prove the authenticity of your accident, provide documentation of the accident scene and will often include evidence of fault.

Photograph the scene: If possible, take photographs of the accident scene, any damages to your vehicle or the other party’s vehicle, and any obvious injuries you have sustained. Also, take pictures of the traffic lights, signs or road if any of these conditions contributed to the accident.

Seek immediate medical attention: Treatment records, medical bills and doctor’s notes are strong evidence of the injuries you have sustained and the financial damage the accident has caused. A complete set of medical records, including medical bills, will be helpful when claiming compensation for the injuries incurred.

Get repair estimates for property damage: Collect repair estimates for any damage done to your car. Most insurance adjusters will demand an inspection of the damage to your car. If you already have the estimates, you will be able to make a strong argument for the repairs you need and the associated costs.

Hire a lawyer: If you feel the insurance company is deliberately delaying or blocking payment of your claim, or if their estimation is unfair, contact an experienced car accident lawyer. Your lawyer will fight for your rights and make sure that you are fairly compensated for your injuries and other damages.

scene of a car accident

There are important steps to take at the scene of a car accident and soon afterward. Following these basic first steps will make filing your claim easier. The car accident lawyers at Dervishi Law Group, P.C.outline the steps to take after a car accident:

Stay at the accident scene

Do not leave the accident scene. Leaving the scene, particularly when someone has sustained injuries or has been killed, will result in serious consequences. Stay at the scene until the police tell you that you can leave.

Call the police

Even in a minor accident, it is advisable to involve the police. Ask the police to file a report and obtain the names and badge numbers of the responding officers.

Exchange information

Get the name, contact number, address, driver’s license number, and other basic information from the other driver involved. If there are any passengers, get their names, contact numbers and addresses.

Talk to witnesses

Talk to people who witnessed the accident. Make sure to get their names, contact numbers and addresses. Their testimony can play an important role in the claims process.

Inform your insurance company

Inform your insurance company. Tell them exactly what happened and about the extent of your injuries. Explain the facts clearly.

Keep track of your medical treatment

Keep a detailed account of the treatment or medications you receive from a doctor, physical therapist or other medical professionals. Keep copies of all medical reports and bills as these can serve as evidence of your medical expenses.

Take pictures

Take photographs of the damage to your car. Photographs can help your insurance adjuster determine compensation for the damage to your car.

Use caution in discussing the incident.

Do not discuss the accident with anyone other than your lawyer, your insurance company and the police. Avoid talking to a representative of another insurance company.

Be cautious about early settlement offers

If you are offered a settlement from an insurance company, do not accept it and consult with an attorney.
