WHAT TO DO AFTER AN AUTO ACCIDENT

When you've been injured in an accident in Carrollton, there are essential steps you can take to help protect your personal injury claim, including:

Call 911 After an Accident

When there is an accident in Carrollton, Georgia, involving injuries or property damage, you are legally obligated to report it to police in most circumstances. A police report is excellent for your injury case because it produces a record of the accident.
No matter what type of accident you are involved in, it's always good to exchange names, phone numbers, and addresses with the liable person as you're waiting for the police to arrive.
When the police arrive at the accident scene, tell them precisely what occurred and how you were injured, including damages to your car or other property.
This is also the time to discuss any unusual behavior you might have seen from the at-fault person. For instance, if you were in an auto collision and suspect the other driver was drunk, let the policemen know about it.

Get Immediate Medical Attention

Get medical care for any injuries as promptly as possible—even if you feel okay or don't think they're that serious.
If you do not receive medical attention immediately, it could damage your claim. For example, the insurance company may argue that your injuries are not as bad as you claim because you waited to see a doctor. 
Two reasons why it is crucial to get prompt medical care include:
     -  It creates a report of your injuries from a medical professional, including any treatment methods and diagnoses discussed. This report can be used as evidence in your personal injury claim.
     -  Injuries can worsen with time, and consulting a physician can help you treat them before becoming severe or expensive.

Take Pictures of Your Injuries and Damages

Photograph evidence can be very beneficial to a personal injury case. Picture evidence shows what the scene looked like directly after the accident or collision.
Use your phone to take pictures of:
   -  Your injuries
   -  Any property damage
   -  The accident scene
   -  Any other items that might be relevant
This might include the other driver's license plate if you were in a car wreck. If the person or driver who caused the accident appears threatening or intoxicated, you might also try taking a video of their actions.

Don't Speak With the Insurance Company

Insurance companies are for-profit corporations, which means they only care about their bottom line and continually look for ways to cut down on their expenses.
They accomplish this by offering accident victims a lump sum of money upfront and hoping they accept it.
They know you are probably concerned about paying for your medical bills and other fees—and what they offer you might seem like enough at the time. Unfortunately, however, that offer is rarely close to the amount that will satisfy all of your losses.
The insurance agent might even appear concerned about your health and want to help, but they are actually just worried about the dollar amount. What seems like genuine care—such as inquiries about how you're feeling—is likely to be used as evidence to damage your claim.
For example, they could point out that you stated you were feeling fine on the phone (even though you were only being polite), and therefore, your injuries aren't as bad as your case says.
It's best not to communicate with the insurance company until you've spoken to a personal injury attorney in Carrollton. Then, you can direct all calls from the insurance agent to your lawyer. Plus, your lawyer can calculate how much your insurance claim is worth so that none of your expenses are missed.
