What to Do After an Auto Accident

The days after your car accident can be a whirlwind. Between doctor visits, calls from the insurance adjuster, and missed time from work, you have little time to do much else—including filing a claim for compensation. But there are a few steps you can take during this time to maximize your chances of getting the money you’re owed.

Your Next Steps After the Accident

After your car accident, you should:

  • See a doctor.
    Get medical attention as soon as possible after the accident. You could have internal injuries that take time to show up, and your medical report can serve as valuable evidence for your case.
  • Record the details of the accident.
    Write down as much as you can remember about the accident, including how fast you were going, which lane you were in, and the weather conditions that day. The more your car accident attorney knows about the accident, the more accurate your claim will be.
  • Don’t talk about the accident.
    It’s important that you don’t discuss the details of the accident with your friends, coworkers, or on social media. The insurance company can use your statements against you.
  • Call a lawyer.
    The insurance company may try to take advantage of you after the accident by offering you a lowball settlement. Getting a lawyer from Cofman Townsley can help you get maximum compensation.

If the insurance company refuses to make a fair settlement offer, we won’t hesitate to take them to court. We will work harder than the other side before and after the trial.
