“I was in a car accident last night, now what?”

Being involved in a car accident can add stress and complicate life.  The aftermath of a car crash can be overwhelming.  The following will help get you organized:

  • Often times it isn’t until hours later or the next day when the pain sets in.  If you feel pain, seek medical assistance immediately at a walk-in urgent care facility or the hospital emergency room.
  • At the scene of the accident you should have received the other driver’s name and insurance carrier.  This information is important, especially if the accident is not your fault.
  • If the police were called, you should have received a police report number which will be needed to obtain a copy of the police report.
  • Locate a copy of the Declaration Page of your automobile insurance to determine the type of coverage you have.

If your car has been damaged and needs repair, it will be important to get the your vehicle to the right body shop.  You may need a rental in the meantime, and if the accident is not your fault, the other driver’s insurance will need to provide you with a rental.  If the accident is your fault you should look to your Declaration Page to determine if there is rental coverage.

If you have been injured in the car crash and the accident is not your fault you should seek legal representation.  Making sure you get the right medical care, regardless of whether you have medical insurance, is critical and Attorney Kerry Socha can assist you.  Call the Law Offices of Kerry A.
