What to Do After a Car Accident in Birmingham

When you have been in a car accident, there are two very important things to do right away—seek medical attention and collect evidence from the crash scene.

By far the most important thing is your health as well as the safety of others involved in the crash, so call an ambulance right away if you or anyone else has been seriously injured. If you are relatively unhurt, check on the others involved in the crash to determine if anyone needs medical attention. In the event you haven’t suffered any serious injuries, remain on the scene until you have collected all the information you need and then head to the doctor as soon as possible. Many car accident injuries appear latent for hours or even days, so the best way to ensure you haven’t suffered from brain damage, internal bleeding, or other trauma is to get a checkup. Not only is it better to be safe than sorry but having medical records on file related to your crash will help your personal injury claim.

Next, remain at the scene of the crash as long as it takes for you to:

  • Exchange contact and insurance information with the other motorists involved,
  • Speak with eyewitnesses and write down their contact information,
  • Contact the police and file an accident report, and
  • Take as many photographs of the crash scene as possible.

Finally, contact a lawyer to discuss your legal rights and options during a free consultation before telling anyone else about your accident, including your insurance company. Otherwise, your insurer may persuade you to accept a low settlement offer and close your case, leaving you to pay the majority of your medical and other expenses yourself.
