What Should I do if...

If someone else hurt me in a car wreck?

Motor vehicle crashes happen quickly, and when they do, the shock can cause confusion and anxiety.   Print this checklist and attach it to your insurance card and/or car registration so you will have the necessary steps to take if an accident occurs:

  1. Stop your vehicle.  Unless it is unsafe to you or others, do not move your vehicle.  The police will conduct an investigation and will need to diagram the collision scene detailing what happened including where and how the vehicles ended up.
  2. Notify the police regardless of whether anyone reports they are hurt.
    Make sure you inform the police of all events; report injuries, and any foul play such as drinking, drugs and/or texting.
  3. Do not apologize.  Apologizing can be used as an admission of guilt.  Save the apologies for a later date if needed.  Do not apologize at the scene.
  4. Collect Information from drivers, passengers, pedestrians and witnesses:
    Full names,
    Phone numbers,
    Make and model of cars,
    Insurance information,
    Name of persons to whom vehicle is registered
  5. Take photographs of vehicles, streets, skid marks, traffic control signs.  Nowadays, everyone has a Smart Phone- use it!!
    Also with your phone, secretly video record the aftermath of the collision.  The more evidence you have to show the scene, how others acted and behaved, and what was said: the better.
  6. 6.    Take notes about the how collision occurred
  7. Seek medical attention: it is common for injuries to manifest days after a collision, long after the adrenaline has stopped and the soreness starts.  Get treated early as a precautionary measure.
  8. Contact your Insurance agent and report the collision.
  9. 9.    Call Bence Law Firm at (334) 539-5000, or email David at david@bencelawfirm.com
