What Should You Do After a Car Accident


I Was Just Hit By Another Driver in a Car Accident – What Do I Do Now?

After a car accident of any type (i.e. car crash, commercial truck accident, motorcycle crash, pedestrian accident, bicycle accident, etc.), your first priority is to seek medical attention and retain an experienced Boca Raton personal injury attorney. Your health and safety are the most important things following an accident; therefore, if you are able to get to a place of safety, do so quickly. You want to avoid being hit by another vehicle as you call the police, emergency medical service, and a towing company.

If you are not disabled by your injuries and it is safe to do so, take pictures of the accident scene and exchange information with the other driver. Because most people have smartphones, it is easy and convenient to record the accident scene just as it appears at the time of your collision. This key evidence could help your attorney establish fault for the crash. If you do not have a phone with a built-in camera, place a disposable camera in your vehicle in the event of an accident to photograph the roadway, crash scene, your vehicle, and the other vehicles involved in the accident.

Filing a Car Accident Claim Stats


How Many Times Will You File a Car Accident Claim?

According to an article published in Forbes, you will file a car accident claim at least once every 17.9 years. If you have never filed a car accident claim and you have been driving over 18 years, consider yourself an exception to the rule or maybe just very lucky. If you accept the premise that drivers will file a car accident claim once every 18 years, the typical driver will be involved in a car accident three to four times during his or her lifetime.

The chances of suffering a serious injury increases with the number of motor vehicle accidents you are involved in during your lifetime. Even though you may take every precaution to be a safe driver, you cannot control what other drivers do while on the road. If every driver on the road is expected to be involved in three to four accidents during their lifetime, the chances you will become a statistic are very high. […]
