What Should You Do When Injured in a Car Accident?

The most important thing you need to do if you’ve been involved in a car accident that has resulted in an injury is to file a claim as quickly as you can. Even though you have four years to file, it becomes more difficult to prove fault and obtain any eye-witness evidence the longer you wait. So, what should you do?

To put yourself in the best position to receive the compensation you’re due following an accident, the team at Aaron Brown Injury Law suggests you follow these six steps:

1. Call the Police

The police are trained to evaluate the scene of an accident, to take witness statements, and can offer an opinion as to what happened and who was at fault. A police officers unbiased report is often crucial in determining fault.

2. Collect Relevant information from other parties involved.

If you have the opportunity, the first thing you should do is getting the other individuals information. Take photos of insurance cards, their driver’s license, and their license plate to start.

3. Inspect all damage, document everything.

Next, take photos of the damage to both vehicles. Be sure to get a few angles to ensure you don’t miss anything.

4. Speak to any witnesses on site.

If witnesses are available, try to get as much information from them as you can. Witness statements help validate the course of events and go a long way in helping you get the compensation you’re due.

5. Get Medical Attention

Too often people wait or try to “tough it out.” An adjuster or jury may look at not getting medical treatment for a couple of weeks as proof that you weren’t really hurt, so go as soon as possible.

6. Call Aaron Brown Injury Law and speak to our qualified team.

Securing witness statements can be crucial and speaking with them while their memory is fresh is important, so get in touch and let us get started as soon as possible.

Compensation You Can Receive for Car Accident Injuries

Auto Repair or Replacement

Many accidents may be minor inconveniences, but when someone leaves your vehicle totaled, what do you do? If your car is lost because of driver negligence, we’ll fight to get you the fair amount you need to get you back on the road again.

Lost Wages

If you’re left unable to work for an extended period of time following an accident, Aaron Brown Injury Law is here to help you recover any lost wages to give you and your family the money needed to maintain your quality of life.

Medical Care

If you spent any time in the hospital, have gone to physical therapy, or required extensive care following an accident, you’re entitled to the compensation necessary to cover costs. We won’t let you suffer under mounting medical bills for an injury caused by another driver’s negligence.

Pain & Suffering

Every accident is different and proper medical care can’t always protect you from the pain and suffering a major accident has brought into your life. Whether the pain you experience keeps you from work or limits your normal activity, you have the right to be paid for the impact.
