Important Steps to Take
- After an accident, particularly a car, truck or motorcycle accident, it
is important that you follow these steps and contact an attorney as soon
Safely move to the shoulder – If it is possible to do so, safely move to the shoulder of the highway
or road. This will help further protect you from accidents or injuries.
Never admit fault – It can seem like second nature to immediately apologize – but we
encourage you to not make any claim of fault.
Contact emergency services – Even in a minor accident, it is important that emergency services be contacted
if there is any sign of an injury.
Speak with a paramedic or EMT – Do not deny speaking with a paramedic or EMT because having a record of
your injuries can help you file a personal injury case.
Take pictures and document – Take pictures of the accident and any damage to your vehicle. Document
time and location and obtain information from the other driver.
File a report – File a police report. Having an official record will help your attorney
in your case.
Get witness names and contact information – Any witnesses can be crucial to your case. Find information for them such
as contact number, name and what they saw happen.
Contact an attorney before your insurance company – You do not want to face an insurance company alone! Contact Parker Alexander
