5 Tips on What to Do After Being Involved in a Car Accident

If you have been involved in a Car accident, then you know it can create a tremendous amount of stress. The whole process of getting your car repaired, seeking medical treatment and missing time from work can be overwhelming. 

The last thing you need is the additional stress of hassling with insurance companies. Contact the McDuffey Law Firm, experienced car accident lawyer, to alleviate your stress and help you navigate the complex legal process of getting the financial compensation you deserve.

There are several steps you should take to protect your health and preserve evidence when you are involved in a car accident in Mid-Missouri or Lake of the Ozarks area - here are 4 things to remember!
  1. Contact the local police or the Missouri Highway Patrol and file an accident report. By filing a report, you are able to document the facts quickly after the accident to avoid error and help determine who is at fault.
  2. Do not leave the scene of the accident until you, or someone you trust, has gathered all of the necessary contact information from all people involved in the accident.  Make sure you get the names, phone numbers, addresses and the insurance information.  In addition, gather the names and contact information for any witnesses.
  3. Get proper medical care for any injured persons. Call an ambulance if necessary or visit an emergency room as soon as you leave the scene of the accident. It is important to note, some injuries may not be immediately apparent – for this reason, it is crucial to be examined by a doctor if you begin having symptoms.
  4. Do not discuss the accident or your injuries to anyone other than the police, your doctor or your lawyer. Giving statements to insurance representatives without speaking to your lawyer first can damage your case.
