What to Do After a Car Accident in Greenville, Mississippi
While we all hope that we will never be involved in a car accident, being prepared can make all the difference in case of the unexpected. If you are involved in a car accident in Greenville, take the following steps:
- Call 911. Call 911 to get the police and, if you have been injured, an ambulance to the scene. The police will file an accident report which documents all the details of the accident. Make sure you request a copy of this report.
- Gather evidence. Take down the name, contact information, and insurance information of the other driver. Then, take photos of the scene of the accident, including damage to your vehicle, any visible injuries, and your surroundings. If there were any bystanders who witnessed your accident, it is a good idea to take down their information as well.
- Seek medical attention. Even if you don’t immediately feel hurt, it is critical that you see a doctor as soon as possible. Waiting too long may not only make any injuries you suffered worse, but may also compromise your personal injury claim.
- Consult a car accident lawyer. After you have received medical attention, you should seek legal counsel. It is important to remember not to give any oral or written statements to the other driver’s insurance company, sign anything, or accept a settlement offer until you consult a lawyer! While an insurance adjuster may seem friendly, his or her job is to protect their employer’s bottom line and not to make sure you get what you are owed.
