What to Do After an Accident

Dunedin Personal Injury Lawyers

Accidents involving cars, boats, trucks, motorcycles, or other motor vehicles can happen at any time and without warning. Because of this, it is important to be fully informed of the steps to take immediately following an accident so that you can be prepared, should the unexpected occur.

With a proper knowledge of what to do in these situations, you can improve your chances of minimizing stress and long-term suffering, while also strengthening your personal injury case. It should go without saying that your health, and the health of others, should be the top priority following an accident. If you are physically capable, immediately seek medical attention for yourself and anybody else involved who needs it.

Some of the other steps that you should take after an accident are:

  • Call law enforcement so that they can come to the scene and file a report.
  • Keep detailed notes of the incident, including time of day, exact location & the weather
  • If possible, take photos of the accident scene, vehicle damage, debris, and license plate numbers.
  • Avoid giving any statements to insurance agents or adjusters, even your own provider.
  • Contact an experienced Dunedin personal injury attorney for legal assistance.
