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
- 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

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.

after the accident. If you are in the hospital, on medication, or feel
