 What to do if you have been in a car accident

Georgia Car Accident Lawyer - Connelly Law FirmThe immediate aftermath of a car accident can be scary and disorienting. You should follow these steps if you are involved in a collision.  

Park Somewhere Safe And Take Note Of Any Injuries

Following a car accident, you should remain still and slowly take note of any injuries you may have sustained. If you are able, move your car to a safe place and check on any passengers in your vehicle. If you are injured or your car is not functioning, turn on the hazard lights to alert oncoming traffic. Call the police immediately to report the incidence. 

Stay At The Scene

You should remain at the accident scene until police arrive. If you leave the scene of the accident too early, you may be accused of hit-and-run. This is a serious offense with grave penalties.


Take Pictures And Get Statements

You should take pictures of the cars, the accident scene, your injuries, and anything else that may be important to your insurance claim. Collect any eyewitnesses’ statements as soon as possible. It is advisable to write down or record statements on video for future reference.

Collect Driver Information and Registration

Be sure to note the make, model, and license plate of any car involved. Collect the names, contact information, and insurance information of all people involved in the incident.  

 An accident must be documented adequately in order for an insurance company to pay a settlement. A passenger in your vehicle or a police officer can assist you if you are physically incapable of obtaining information. You should not rely solely on the police report alone to prove your claim, as it may not contain all the details you need.

Visit A Doctor Immediately 

Get medical attention as soon as you can after leaving the scene. Many people delay seeking medical attention because they don’t think they have serious injuries. It’s important to understand that symptoms often do not appear until hours or days later. The adrenaline and stress of a collision can also make you overlook potential injuries. When it comes to filing an insurance claim, you need to have a record of any medical attention you were given for injuries. Follow your doctor’s instructions, including possible rehabilitation, to optimize your recovery.

Common injuries from car accidents

You should seek medical attention as soon as possible if you suspect you have suffered an injury. Injuries that can result from car accidents include:

  • Whiplash and Neck Injuries
  • Concussions
  • Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Broken Bones
  • Burns
  • Back Injuries

If you were involved in a car accident, a lawyer can help you get the compensation you deserve. At Connelly Law, we can help you preserve evidence and negotiate with the insurance company until you receive a fair settlement offer. Our research involves examining the averages of settlements and resolutions of similar incidents and injuries. Our car accident attorneys will be able to provide guidance throughout the claim process that can significantly increase your settlement offer.

Don’t fall for insurance company tricks

After you notify your insurance company of the accident, they will do anything to come out on top, often trying to convince you to settle the case quickly. Accident victims should be aware that insurance companies do not care about their well-being. They only care about their bottom line.

You may receive a false sense of security from insurance companies or be urged to settle before you know your options. Be sure to follow these steps to protect your rights and get the compensation you deserve:

  • Consult an attorney before signing anything from an insurance company
  • Record the exact location, weather, time of day, and witnesses of the accident
  • Document any medical care that you receive
  • Get a copy of the police report
  • Do not sign blanket medical releases
  • Don’t accept an offer too quickly

How much is my car accident case worth?

With the help of an experienced car accident lawyer, you should be able to recover a settlement payout that covers the cost of expenses incurred as a result of the accident. Accident attorneys can ensure victims receive enough money to cover months, years, or even a lifetime of medical expenses after an accident.

How long will my car accident case take to settle?

In simple cases without injuries, some car accident insurance claims are resolved within 30 days. Cases that are more complex can take anywhere from a few months to a few years to settle, especially when a trial is required. Our goal when working with you is to expedite the process and maximize your recovery.

We can help you with your car accident claim
