Car accidents are scary experiences. The first priority is making sure you and the other drivers are safe. If anyone is injured, of course call for an ambulance. Call the police, every time. Even if it doesn’t seem like a big deal, having a police report is always important. Always exchange insurance information with the other drivers as well.
If you are hurt or have serious damage to your vehicle, especially if the accident was not your fault, contact an attorney. Insurance companies will push you to settle your claim quickly. Sometimes, injuries do not seem bad until days later. An attorney can take the stress of dealing with the insurance companies away for you. Once you are represented, the insurance companies cannot contact your directly. They must contact your attorney. Additionally, you get the benefit of someone with experience telling you what the best options for you may be.
