After a Car Accident

Car accidents are, unfortunately, a normal part of life. About 6 million auto accidents occur across the U.S. each year, and about 2.5 million people are injured in these collisions. Well over 30,000 lose their lives. It is important to understand what to do after a car accident to ensure you are in compliance with the law, protect your health, and preserve your right to compensation.

Our Northwest Indiana car accident attorneys are here to help after a serious accident. We offer a free initial consultation and welcome you to give us a call at (219) 212-2462 to find out more about your particular accident and rights. Additionally, we can offer the following insight regarding the steps to take immediately after a crash:

  • Remain at the scene. It is against the law to leave the scene of a car accident that has caused injury or property damage. Remain at the scene and exchange information with the other party or parties involved. (The only exception may be if you are in need of emergency medical care and are taken from the scene in an ambulance).
  • Seek medical attention. Even if you feel you are not seriously injured, it is important to see your doctor. Tell your doctor that you were in a car accident so he or she knows what type of injuries to look for. In some cases, head injuries or whiplash may not present immediately after a collision. Medical intervention could prevent further injury and will also support your claim.
  • Gather as much evidence and information at the scene as possible. Take pictures, even from your cell phone, of the scene, the damage to your car, the damage to the other person’s car, the area around the accident, your injuries, and any other relevant details. Get the information of any witnesses who saw what occurred. Take notes so you do not forget important details.
  • Contact an attorney. If you were seriously injured, you need to be sure that your auto insurance claim is paid fully and in a timely manner. Unrepresented, you could become the victim of unethical or outright illegal practices by insurance providers to undervalue or deny your claim. Involve an attorney and make sure your rights are protected.
