What Should I Do if I am in a Car Accident?

Fort Collins Personal Injury Attorney Serves Car Crash Victims in Larimer County, Colorado

The initial steps you take after an auto accident are important for your health and that of any fellow passengers. They are also critical in securing injury compensation if the negligence of another driver caused the crash.

After you assess the physical well-being of everyone in your vehicle and contact emergency medical personnel if necessary, it is imperative to preserve all evidence available at the scene. This means calling the police so they can complete an accident report. You will want to take up-close photographs of the damage to your automobile and any other vehicles involved in the collision as well as of the scene. Make note of any unusual conditions such as weather, sun glare, or any clues that would indicate negligence on the part of the other driver(s). If any witnesses are present, get their contact information so they can be reached at a later time.

Car Accident Injuries

If you or anyone in your car is injured in any way but do not require an ambulance to the hospital, see a physician as soon as possible for a thorough examination. Detail every body part that was affected in the crash. No injury is too minor to mention. Because of the adrenaline rush that typically occurs during a serious car accident, you may not feel the full effects for some time. If further complications develop, inform your doctor immediately.

Keep a record of all expenses, losses and lost income as well as how the injury has affected your daily life.
