Although the majority of people operate their vehicles safely and responsibly, most drivers will be involved in a car accident at some point in their lives. At The Law Offices of Frank L. Branson, our experienced attorneys know that the actions drivers take immediately after a car accident often can play a huge role in who is ultimately held responsible.
The first thing to do after a car accident is to remember to remain calm. It is not unusual for accident victims to be in shock and experience feelings of anger or fear. A couple of deep breaths will ease the driver’s nerves and help them prepare to collect the information they will need to provide to police and insurance companies.
Car accident victims should call 911 to report the accident and any injuries. If possible, all the vehicles involved should be moved to the roadside to help avoid a second accident.
Following an accident, insurance adjusters may pressure you to quickly accept a monetary settlement that may not be sufficient to take care of your current or future medical needs. If you believe that you have been injured in a car accident, it’s important to consult an attorney who can make sure that you are treated fairly. At The Law Offices of Frank L. Branson, our experienced legal team will review your case at no cost to you. We are paid only in the event of a positive outcome.
