Steps To Take After An Accident
After an accident, things can happen quickly. You may be injured, be questioned by law enforcement or need to go to the hospital.
Shortly after an accident, while you are getting treatment, or sometimes even at the scene, you may be approached by people asking if you have seen a lawyer. It is illegal and unethical for anyone to call or contact you soliciting legal services. You should find your own legal counsel, with knowledge and experience handling car accident cases and personal injury claims.

What To Do After A Car Wreck
After a car accident, you should speak as little as possible to anyone except for the police and your attorney. Often, insurance companies will send investigators to the scene immediately in order to limit their liability. It is important for you to speak to an attorney before giving any statements to an insurance company.
When the police ask about your injuries, be sure to mention every injury or problem you have. Anything you tell the police officer will end up in a police report and may be useful as evidence of your injuries. Also, even if you are unsure of your injuries, you should accept an ambulance to the hospital.
Additionally, you should collect the names and contact information for witnesses or anyone who stops to ask you how you are doing. Many witnesses are unable to wait around for the police to arrive and they may have useful information about the accident. Also, keep a camera in your glove compartment or use your cell phone to take pictures of the accident and scene.
