What should you do right after a car accident that will help your case?
Of course the first thing you should do after a car accident is make sure that everyone gets the medical attention they need and if anyone needs an ambulance making sure that one is called. Then you want to call the police. After that you some things you can do that could help you build a case if it is necessary is to take as many pictures of the accident scene as you can. Now of course if you are seriously hurt you may not be able to, so you may want to have a passenger do this if they are not injured as badly as you. The same thing applies if your passenger is severely injured and they can't move, then you should take all the pictures. Also, just as important is to try get the names and contact information of any witnesses at the scene of the accident. The next step is to call your insurance company and report the accident. Finally you want to call an experienced personal injury attorney.
