    What to Do When in a Car Wreck – Part 3 of 3 – The Parian Law Firm – Car Accident Attorneys

    Posted on - Tuesday, September 16, 2014 under Car Accident, FAQ

    Well, here is the grand finale in our three part series about the second most common question asked of many lawyers.  What are you supposed to do when you’ve been involved in a motor vehicle accident?  We have been through the moments immediately after a wreck in Part 1 to documentation and not admitting fault in Part 2.  Now, we move on to things to consider away from the scene of the car accident.

    (7)  GO TO THE DOCTOR. – Your adrenaline is flowing.  Just like a race car driver after wrecking, you may be able to move or in some cases run from the car.  However, never underestimate a car or truck accident.  No matter how slight the impact, you or others in the car may have suffered an injury.  Therefore, it is recommended that you see a doctor soon after a car accident.  It is always better to be safe than sorry!

    (8) NOTIFY YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY – By now, you know where your car insurance card is hopefully.  Go ahead and make the phone call to them letting them know about the accident.  Keep in mind that the person on the other end of the line works for an insurance company.  While they do (most times) have your best interests in mind, that person on the other end of the line is also trying to improve the large corporate behemoth’s bottom line.

    (9) FOLLOW THRU WITH YOUR DOCTOR’S ORDERS – You would not believe the calls that come in from people that have been injured in an accident and simply QUIT going to the doctor.  More times than not, they simply had no health insurance or other funds to pay the medical providers.  Regardless of such, you need to continue medical care if you have been injured.  Get in touch with a personal injury lawyer.  He or she can help you get the care you need.
