Our personal injury lawyers can give an honest appraisal of your situation, and let you make the ultimate determination if you want further representation. If you have been in an accident and want to discuss your case, give us a call.

Gathering the Necessary Information After a Crash

Following a serious car accident, one of the most important things you can do for yourself is gather important information. However, there are some instances where you may not be in a position to gather information at the accident scene; for example, if an accident is serious enough to warrant emergency medical attention.

If possible, there are several things that should be done following an accident, including:

  • Get the other driver's insurance information
  • Get the other driver's personal information
  • Contact local law enforcement
  • Contact your insurance carrier

Gathering this information can make it easier to work with the insurance carriers in the future as you are filing your claim or attempting to recover compensation from the liable party's insurance company. If you have any question regarding your case or options for recovery, contact an attorney at Kinnard, Clayton & Beveridge.

Talking to Insurance Agents After a Crash

Depending on the severity of your injuries, it might not be wise to give statements to the insurance agent who is working for the liable party. These agents will attempt to get a statement or recover information soon after the accident. If you are in the hospital, on medication, or feel uncomfortable talking to an insurance agent, do not hesitate to contact us. We offer a no-cost consultation and can give you free advice on how best to proceed.

You may or may not actually need a lawyer, and you can decide if you need further representation after our discussion. If you select our firm to represent you, we will stand by your side every step of the way.
