The Arkansas auto accident lawyers at Rainwater, Holt & Sexton Injury Lawyers want to get you the highest possible settlement for your car wreck. Having certain information can give us an advantage while working your case. Here are some important steps to follow when you have been injured in a car wreck:
- Contact the Police
Get a copy of the police report. This information can be useful in your case. If a police officer came to the scene, try to get his name and badge number. If the police didn’t come to the scene, you may have to go to the police station to pick it up, or file a report there.
- Straighten Out the Details
- Get the insurance information for the other parties involved. This may be listed in the police report, but if not, it’s helpful to have that information on hand.
- Try to get the names, addresses, phone numbers, and any other contact information for anyone who was involved in or witnessed your wreck.
- Draw a diagram or write a detailed description of the car wreck. Make sure you note the lane and direction you were traveling, as well as the direction and lane of any other vehicles involved.
- See a Doctor Immediately
Even if you don’t think you need to see a doctor, see a doctor as soon as possible. Some injuries take time to present themselves. We also recommend that you keep in-depth notes about how you feel after the accident, your recovery process, and any instructions your doctor gave you.
