What To Do After A Car Wreck in Montgomery

Knowing what to do immediately after a crash can save your life and preserve a potential legal claim.

Call the Police and Emergency Medical Services

Choosing not to call the police after a car crash is a dangerous decision.

  • When the police respond to a crash, their report becomes an essential piece of evidence.
  • In their report, police officers will note which driver is responsible for the crash. When the car crash wasn’t your fault, this piece of evidence is critical.

Preserve the Evidence

If you’re well enough to preserve evidence after a crash, there are some relatively simple steps you can take to protect yourself and your case.

  • Take as many photos as you can of your vehicle, the road, the other person’s car, weather conditions, any objects that impacted the crash, and anything else that might be relevant.
  • At the scene of the crash, take down the contact information of the other driver and any people who may have witnessed the crash.
  • Make sure to take pictures of all your damaged objects before getting them repaired. For example, when you do fix your car, save the receipts.
  • If you have torn or bloody clothing, don’t wash it until your lawyer says it’s okay to do so.
  • If you’re hurt, take pictures of your wounds.

Get Medical Attention

Too often, victims skip going to the doctor because they don’t think they’re hurt — or hurt badly enough to justify going to the emergency room.

  • What many don’t realize is that their medical costs can be included in an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit, so victims should never put off going to the doctor for financial reasons, especially since hidden injuries like internal bleeding or nerve damage might not be immediately apparent.
  • Getting checked out early is one way to prevent injuries from becoming more expensive and severe down the road. These medical records can also serve as valuable evidence down the road.

3 Mistakes You Should Avoid After a Crash

Every car crash victim has the right to a happy, healthy life after a crash. However, victims might unintentionally damage their cases or their claims without realizing it.

Below are three major mistakes victims should avoid after a crash.

1. Don’t Apologize

It’s human nature to say “I’m sorry” when something bad happens. However, in the eyes of the law, saying “I’m sorry” is just like admitting that the crash was your fault.

  • When you talk to the other driver after a crash, stay away from small talk or needless apologies that could put your options for recovery at risk.

2. Don’t Ignore Your Injuries

Skipping a doctor’s appointment after a crash is a mistake many victims make.

  • Not only do you risk hidden injuries getting worse over time, but failing to get medical records of your injuries can lead the insurance company or the other driver’s legal team to say you’re lying about your wounds.
  • The argument is that if you were hurt badly enough to justify a lawsuit, surely you would have gone to the doctor.

3. Don’t Sign Anything Before Talking to a Lawyer

When you file a claim with the responsible driver’s insurance company, their first offer will almost certainly be too low.

  • The insurance adjuster responsible for your case is likely under tremendous pressure from their manager to settle claims as quickly and cheaply as possible.
  • It’s in your best interest to have a lawyer review their offer before you sign it because your case could be worth more than they’re offering.
