Car accidents are very stressful for each driver because they are unexpected and unpredictable. Even the best and the most careful driver may be involved in an auto accident.
According to Association for Safe International Road Travel (ASIRT) 2.35 million of people get injured or disabled in road crash accidents in U.S. Road crashes cost $230.6 million per year.
If you got into an auto accident you should first collect evidence as to who caused the accident and what are the damages of it. The best solution for you could be taking pictures of the damages, because that would be an incontestable evidence.
Don’t forget to document in writing everything that refers to the accident, that could include your medical bills, hospital and doctor visits or lost time at work.
It is also good for your case to have the names and contact information of the witnesses who may observed the accident. Taking notes about any conversations that you have at the scene of the accident is also an important step for you to take.
And don’t forget, Loose Lips Sink Ships!
Don’t tell anyone about your intentions regarding filing a future claim or lawsuit other than your attorney.
