What To Do After a Car Accident in Georgia
Following an injury, it is important to take immediate steps to make sure that you and your family are protected. These steps include:
Seek Medical Attention
Above all else, it is vital that you take care of yourself after a car accident. Even minor car accidents can cause serious whiplash and other conditions that can lead to serious internal injuries. If you require immediate medical attention, call 911 if you can and head to the emergency room right away.
If you remain at the scene of the accident long enough to file a police report and collect the other driver(s) insurance information, head to a doctor as soon as possible for a checkup. Not only will a doctor be able to catch any latent injuries that would have gotten worse if left untreated but having medical records on file will strengthen your personal injury claim.
If you are well enough to remain at the scene of the accident, collect as much evidence as you can while it’s fresh.
Take pictures of the crash scene from all angles and make sure to capture visual evidence of:
- Property damage
- And potential accident causes (tire skid marks, nearby traffic signs and signals, obstructions in the road, poor visibility, etc.)
Also, speak with any other motorists involved and obtain their contact and insurance information. Finally, get a copy of the police report for records.
Contact An Attorney
The insurance company adjusters and investigators will do whatever they can to minimize your claim and pay you as little money as possible. Do not ever accept any offer made to you by an insurance agent without first speaking with an attorney.
These insurance agents are not on your side, because they work for the insurance industry. Their job is to pay you as little as you will accept. Do not fall for that trick.
Also, never settle a claim without knowing all of your injuries and the required medical care to recover from them, as well as all of your other recoverable losses, such as lost wages or income, permanent scarring and disfigurement, and your physical and mental pain and suffering.
