What to Do After Your Car Accident

Following these five steps after your car accident can help protect your health and strengthen your claim:

  1. See a doctor.
    Even if your injuries seem minor, symptoms of internal injuries may take days or weeks to appear. A doctor can determine what medical care you need and create a report documenting the injuries caused by your car accident.
  2. Gather evidence.
    If you’re able, use a camera or cellphone to take pictures of the crash scene, damage to your vehicle, and any injuries you or your loved ones suffered. Write down any details you remember from the accident while they’re fresh in your mind, such as contact information, license plate numbers, vehicle makes and models, and road conditions.
  3. Avoid talking to others about your accident.
    Don’t discuss your accident and don’t post about your accident on social media websites. Insurance adjusters may use the information you share as evidence to deny or reduce the value of your claim.
  4. Don’t accept lowball settlement offers.
    Insurance companies are large corporations that often put profits before people. While a quick settlement offer from an insurance adjuster may seem like a good idea, it may be a fraction of what your case is worth.
  5. Call Colbert Cooper Hill.
    Evidence that can strengthen your claim may disappear over time. The sooner you contact our Oklahoma auto accident lawyers, the sooner we can begin building a strong claim against the insurance company. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Call us today.
