What to do after a car accident
Always call the police after a collision. Having a police report on file is vital for your case.
If possible, take photos or videos of the accident scene with a smartphone. Photograph the vehicles involved, your injuries, and any skid marks, poor road conditions, such as pot-holes, or similar clues to how the accident occurred.
Always seek medical attention after a car accident, even if you do not think you were hurt. Many injuries are not apparent immediately after a crash, and failure to seek help may mean the other driver’s insurance company could try to claim your injuries are not as serious– or even that they resulted from another cause.
It is likely the other driver’s insurance company will contact you soon after the accident, perhaps with a settlement offer. Never accept a settlement offer from an insurance company without consulting a car accident attorney.
An insurance adjuster will try to settle your claim for as little as possible. That is their job.
At Chaffin Luhana, we know the fair amount of a settlement for your injuries. What may seem like an adequate settlement to the layperson is often far too little to pay for your long-term needs– including rehabilitation, living expenses, necessary equipment, modifications to your home, and more.
