Whether or not you've been in an auto accident, we recommend that you read the following:
1) Immediately After Auto Accident
Do not admit fault for the auto accident-not to the other party, your passengers, the police, witnesses, or your auto insurance agent. Even if you suspect you may have been at least partially to blame for the auto accident, do not admit wrongdoing or sign anything.
- Call Police
- Don't move vehicles
- Exchange basic insurance information with the other driver
- Take pictures of the accident scene and damage to your vehicle.
- Notify your insurance company.
- Remove all valuable items and personal information from vehicle if being towed.
- Know where your vehicle is being towed.
- Contact insurance to know length of time vehicle can stay at tow yard without being charged personally.
- Ask insurance company about car rental coverage and length of time.
- Your perception of the event could easily be altered by your emotional state, so it's best not to settle claims until you're able to think clearly and %100 well.
2) Seek Chiropractic or Medical Attention
See a chiropractic doctor or appropriate medical attention within 24 to 48 hours. Although you may feel fine now or think your auto injuries aren't very serious, symptoms such as pain, discomfort, dizziness, or numbness may appear in the days following the auto accident.
It is best to get checked by a medical professional immediately. If you wait too long to seek medical attention, it will be harder to prove that your auto injuries are the result of the car crash. Work with your chiropractor to evaluate your injuries
3) Take Pictures
Ask a friend to take pictures of your auto accident injuries. If you have trouble getting a settlement from the insurance company or you decide to hire a personal injury attorney, photos will be valuable evidence for your case. Cuts, bruises, and scrapes heal quickly, so getting photos immediately is a smart move. If you don't have access to a regular digital camera, snap a few pictures with your cell phone.
4) Take Notes
Take detailed notes regarding your chiropractic and medical treatment. This information may be necessary for you to get full reimbursement from the insurance company.
Jot down the names and addresses of any chiropractors, or other professionals you were referred to after the auto accident. Keep receipts for medications you were prescribed or any assistive devices such as crutches that were needed.
5) Get the Police Report
Obtain a copy of the police report to verify that all facts regarding the accident are correct. Errors or omissions in the police report could delay your body injury settlement.
