What Should I Do After a Car Accident?
Being involved in a car crash is a scary experience, and many people are unsure of what to do. There are several steps you need to take to protect your personal injury claim.
If you've been in a car crash, you need to:
- Call 911 and check on your passengers
- Exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver
- Take pictures of all vehicle damage
- Get the contact information of any witnesses
- File a police report
- See a doctor and request a copy of your medical records
- Call our team to begin building your case
Even if you feel uninjured, you still need to make an appointment to see your doctor. Some injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, muscle sprains, internal organ damage, and whiplash, may not exhibit symptoms for some time after the accident. By seeing a doctor as soon as possible, you can receive treatment for any underlying injuries and use your medical records to support your personal injury claim.
What Compensation May I Be Entitled To?
If you've been involved in a car accident, you may be able to receive a settlement for:
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Medical bills
- Property damage
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Punitive damages
Economic damages, such as medical bills and lost wages, and noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life, are designed to provide financial relief to plaintiffs. However, punitive damages are designed solely to punish defendants who act with gross negligence or egregious behavior. For example, if you were injured by a drunk or reckless driver, you may be able to receive punitive damages.
