What to do if you are involved in a car accident

Unfortunately, most people don’t know what to do in the event of an accident. My own mother had an accident recently and she frantically called me and asked her what to do. Knowing what to do is important to protect your health and protect your interests with other drivers and insurance companies. This is true even if you are wrong.

The most important thing after an accident is your safety. If you, the other driver, or any passenger are seriously injured, it is important to seek help. Dial 911, a one-stop shop for police and ambulance calls. If there is no apparent injury to the person involved, it is still recommended to make a non-emergency call to the police department and ask the police to come to the scene of the accident. In most cities, including Las Vegas (and the surrounding area), you can call 311 for non-emergency police dispatch.

In the event of injury and/or property damage, the presence of the police is very important so that a police report can be prepared and then used to obtain proper compensation from the proper insurance company or company, even if it is your own insurance provider. Compensation may include medical treatment, property damage, lost wages and/or pain and suffering.

If the police are called via a 911 emergency call or a 311 non-emergency call, the police will ensure that all appropriate information is reported in the police report. Exchange information with other drivers if there is no apparent injury or property damage, and/or if police did not come to the scene of the accident. Get driver name, car registration information, and insurance company and policy numbers. Give your information to other drivers.

Do not make any statements about the accident and how it happened, other than the facts, and only make any statements to the police. Do not make any claims about your medical condition; keep in mind that many injuries may be latent and may not be immediately apparent. Contact a personal injury attorney immediately; do not communicate with or report your accident to your insurance company without consulting a personal injury attorney. In most cases, the attorney assumes responsibility for making such contacts on your behalf, but will advise you whether any form of contact should be made. Remember, it is in the insurance company’s interest to underestimate the injury and damage caused by an accident so that they pay the least amount. Lawyers know how to deal with insurance companies and give you the compensation you deserve. The more serious the accident, the more important it is to contact a personal injury attorney.
