A car accident can be a traumatic event, even if there is minor physical injury. Though you may be shaken up after a car accident, there are things that are important to remember. You should remain calm. Find out if anyone is injured. Call the police and report the accident. Wait for the police to arrive. Do not get into an argument with any other drivers involved in the accident. Gather as much information as you can about any other drivers and vehicles involved in the accident. It will be helpful if you keep a disposable camera in your glove compartment, which can be used to take pictures of the accident scene. Try to make note of the conditions involved in the car accident, including the weather, traffic conditions and surrounding area. If the accident causes injury or vehicle damage, claims will likely be processed through an insurance company. Therefore, it is important to know about your insurance coverage and make sure that you are fully protected. Full protection includes uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage and full tort coverage. If you are unclear about the specifics of your insurance policy, attorneys at Sheller, Ludwig and Sheller will provide a free consultation to review your policy and make suggestions to better protect you and your family.
