Auto accidents can be life-changing experiences. The crash itself is just the start of what can be a lengthy recovery process, which may include filing an insurance claim, establishing fault, and getting the closure you require to proceed on with your life. Having to handle both the insurers and the legal system to receive the compensation you deserve can be intimidating.
At the Law Offices of Anthony Carbone, an experienced Jersey City personal injury attorney can help you receive the compensation you deserve. The practice has been serving clients for more than 30 years and boasts to have the experts in navigating the most complex insurance and legal process to ensure you receive maximum recovery.
What Should You Do Immediately Following An Auto Accident?
You should remain at the accident scene. Leaving the scene instantly may qualify you as a hit-and-run driver. If the individual sustains injuries or the collision results in wrongful death and flees the scene, you may risk facing serious penalties or even criminal charges.
Instead, if you are not badly injured, assess the condition of other people involved in the accident. If someone requires medical attention, call 911. Don’t try moving an individual who is complaining of neck or back pain, unless there’s an existing hazard that may cause imminent danger.
Reach out to the police so that they send out someone to record a police report. You will definitely require this report later on while filing your insurance claim. Furthermore, you should share basic information, including your name, driver’s license number, insurance details, and car number plate with the other parties involved in the collision.
Act civilly and politely, but do not show any acknowledgment of wrongdoing on your side, including saying “sorry,” as doing so may lay the grounds for your legal liability. If possible, talk to a witness concerning what they saw and record their names and contact details so your attorney can reach out to them about what occurred and use their testimonies to build your case for recovery.
Call your insurance company and provide them with the basic details about the accident. Be truthful and cooperate, otherwise, they may later deny your claim. You may also contact your attorney, particularly if you sustained an injury in the auto accident.
