What should I do if I am involved in an automobile accident?

If you are injured or believe that you might be injured, it's important for you to be examined by a doctor. Whether you go to the emergency room or your family doctor, it's important to seek medical care as soon as possible for your own well being as well as for any potential claim you have. It is important for you to be checked out by a physician. In addition, it's important for you to write down details concerning the accident, including the names, addresses, and phone numbers of those involved in the accident or who witnessed the accident.

Information concerning insurance company names and policies is important to keep track of. If you have any bruises or physical injuries that would be depicted in pictures, it would be important to take pictures immediately after the accident as well as on a regular basis. It's much easier to show a picture of the damages sustained to your body as opposed to trying to describe it.

With respect to your vehicle, it's important to take pictures of the damage that was incurred and also write down any items that were damaged inside the vehicle as a result of the accident.
