What To Do After An Accident

The most important thing to do after an accident is get the medical attention you need and make sure others are OK. Once you are safe, however, the best thing you can do after an accident is preserve evidence.

  • Before the cars are moved, take pictures of the scene.
  • Photograph damage to both your vehicle and the other party's.
  • Gather contact information from witnesses.
  • Talk to nearby businesses to see if they have surveillance footage.
  • Take pictures of defects in the road.

Having strong evidence will go a long way toward supporting your personal injury claim, but evidence can easily disappear. Collecting it quickly is the best way to preserve it.

Dangerous Roadways

Few people know that dangerous roadways are reason enough to file a personal injury claim. Municipalities, including city and state governments, are responsible for maintaining safe roadways. If they failed to fulfill that duty, it is possible to hold them accountable through a personal injury claim. Our attorneys can help you determine whether road conditions played a role in your accident.
