What To Do After an Auto Accident
Work with a San Bernardino Car Accident Attorney
When you are involved in a car accident, being prepared and knowing what to do can help bring ease to a tense situation. There are a number of steps that you should take, including those listed below.
- Take Care of Your Health: If you are facing serious injuries, then an emergency team should arrive to provide treatment. If your injuries are not severe, you should still have them evaluated. Many accident victims don't realize the level of damage that they have suffered so it is important that you are looked at by a professional.
- Exchange Information: You should get the contact information of the other driver, including their name, address and phone number. You also want their insurance information, their driver's license number, the make of the car and their license plate number. If there were passengers in the other vehicle, you should get their contact information as well.
- Get Evidence: It is smart to leave a camera in your car or have a phone with a camera in case you are involved in an accident. You can take pictures of the scene of the accident, the damage that occurred to your car and the damage that occurred to the other car or cars.
- Talk to an Attorney: If you believe that you should be compensated for an accident that was caused by a negligent driver, you want to work with an experienced San Bernardino injury attorney.
