What to Do After a Car Accident

Was your injury caused by negligence of another? If your injury was the result of another's carelessness in a car accident, then you are probably dealing with car repairs, visits to the doctor's office or hospital and possible a loss in wages. In many cases, this already difficult time is also made more difficult as you watch the medical expenses add up and you take a pay cut as you recover from your injuries. Our firm is here to help you with this difficult time and unlike the insurance companies, we are here to help and be on your side.

The outcome of many cases depends on the actions taken by the injured driver at the scene of the accident or the days following the accident. It is crucial that you do not admit fault to the other driver or anyone else present at the scene. The most important step is to seek help if you have been injured in a car accident.

The first thing you should do after a car accident is call 911 to seek emergency medical services. Don't let anyone try and talk you out of reporting the accident. The negligent driver or a police officer may use your words to prevent you from seeking compensation for your injuries, therefore, do not admit fault to anyone at the scene of the accident or thereafter.

If you have a camera phone, take pictures of the vehicles, your injuries, and the scene of the accident if physically safe and possible. Most importantly, call your Brea personal injury attorney at the Gill Law Group as soon as possible.
