Of course, you will need to take action even before you call Mike Slocumb Law Firm.
- Call 911. Even if you're not sure you are injured, you will want a police officer at the scene to investigate.
- Don't leave the scene. It's against the law to hit and run. If the other driver did flee, try to remember as much information as possible and give those details to the police.
- Talk to witnesses. The police may also get information, but don't rely on the officer to talk to everyone. Ask for their contact info, including their names and phone numbers.
- Take pictures of the accident scene. You should photograph any damage to your car as well as injuries you may have sustained.
- Tell your insurance company about the crash. You will need to let the insurance company know you've been in an accident. Give them the facts. If you have concerns about talking to your insurance company, call our law firm first.
One thing you should never do after a car accident is to offer the claims adjuster for the other driver any statement. We urge you to decline to comment if you are contacted by the adjuster. Anything you say to an adjuster can and will be used against you.
Instead, get the adjuster's name and contact information. We can then contact the insurance company for the other driver on your behalf. By doing so, we can make sure your rights are protected.
