Four Things To Do After A Car Accident

Your drivers' education class probably taught you how to be a defensive driver, but you might not have learned what to do if another driver causes an accident. It isn't always easy to know exactly what to do after a car accident, especially if you have suffered whiplash or a more serious injury.

At Glenda Mitchell Law Firm, we work with clients throughout Georgia who have been in traffic accidents. We have seen first-hand that not everyone knows what to do right after an accident. Here are four things we recommend you do as soon as possible:

  1. Contact the police. It is important to have an official report of the accident.
  2. Document what happened. Take pictures with your phone of the vehicles involved, your injuries and any other property damage. If there are witnesses, write down their contact information.
  3. Get medical attention, even if you are not sure you have been hurt. Injuries such as whiplash might not show until days after an accident.
  4. Contact a lawyer. Do not talk to an insurance company before you talk to an attorney.
