After An Accident, Take Action To Protect Your Rights
Some of the things you should do after a serious
car accident include the following:
Get medical care immediately — One might think that this goes without saying. However, some people delay getting treatment. Even if you feel OK, you should see a doctor. The effects of some injuries (such as concussions) reveal themselves only over time.
Report the accident to the police — If the police don’t come to the scene of the accident, make sure you report it to them.
Exchange information with the other driver — You will want to exchange names, phone numbers and insurance information. However,
do not admit fault or discuss what happened.
Contact a lawyer — Call Scott M. Brown & Associates as soon as possible at 979-849-8526. In a consultation, we can provide pointers on what to do and not to do after your accident.
Report the accident to your insurance company — You will need to report the accident, but only describe the basics of where and when the accident happened. Our firm can provide guidance as to what type of information you should discuss.
Document the chain of events leading to the accident — To the best of your recollection, write down what happened and when. This does not have to be elaborate, but it can serve as a starting point for our comprehensive investigation.
Do not discuss your case with an insurance company representative — Insurance adjusters and representatives are skilled at collecting information that can be used to deny or minimize claims. Let Scott M. Brown & Associates speak for you.
Follow the instructions of your doctor — If you stop seeing your doctor or stop taking medications before the doctor says you are OK, the insurance company use this to minimize the value of your case.
