What To Do if You Have Been in an Automobile Accident

Automobile accidents can happen to anyone at any time. If you are involved in an accident, it is important to do all of the following:

1. Get Help:

Stay Calm and call an ambulance for anyone who is injured.  If anyone is in need of medical attention or if any of the vehicles involved need to be towed, you should also report the accident to the police.

2. Exchange Information / Report Your Claim:

Give your name, address, license plate number, and name of your insurance company to the other party, and get the same information from them.  Report the accident to your insurance company as soon after the accident as possible.

3. Document Accident and Witness Information:

Record the names, addresses, and phone numbers of any people who saw the accident or any of the events immediately before or immediately after the accident.   You should also record the date, time, and location of the accident, and if possible photograph the accident scene, damage to all vehicles and all visible injuries on your body.  You may also want to make a diagram of the accident scene and location of the vehicles at the time of impact as well.

4. Call Us!

A representative from the other person’s insurance company will likely contact you the day of the accident and ask to take your “statement”.  In reality, they will record their interrogation of you.  They will try to get you to say that you are not injured.  In fact, most people don’t even know if they’re injured until the next morning.  Often they will use subtle questioning techniques designed to have you accept blame for the accident.  These people are trained professionals.  They are not in business to pay money and they have no obligation to be fair with you.  Their job is to protect the person who hit you and to pay you as little as possible.

If you have been injured in an accident you should call Feldstein, Grinberg, Lang & McKee immediately.  If you do, it is our job to fight for what you deserve!  412-471-0677
