If you have been injured in a car accident, below are some tips to follow to help protect your rights:
Call the police - Immediately at the scene of the accident
See your doctor or go to a local hospital - some injuries may not manifest obvious symptoms until a small amount of time has passed. As soon as you begin to feel pain, contact your physician.
Don’t speak to insurance adjusters! Let the Gatison Law Firm do that for you. Insurance adjusters work for the insurance company that represents your opposition. Their interest is in protecting their client and their firm.
Take pictures if you are able. Cell phones are very handy in this capacity and a picture is worth a thousand words.
Observe!!! Take note of the behavior of the other party (is he/she drinking, talking on a cell phone or otherwise distracted) and inform the police of your observations.
Talk to witnesses at the scene of the accident. If you are able, write down their contact information and their statements. Ask them to wait for the police with you and give a statement.
Contact your insurance company immediately. Delays in reporting the accident to your insurance company could weaken the credibility of your claim.
