How You Can Improve The Outcome Of Your Car Accident Claim
After a serious car accident, it may feel like nothing you can do to protect your best interests or improve your situation. When the outcome of a serious personal injury can impact you for years to come, you should know that the actions you make right after your accident can shape that outcome.
At Warhawk Legal, our Oklahoma personal injury attorneys want you to know that you have the power to benefit yourself in sure a dire situation. A few simple steps can help provide you with the outcome you deserve in your personal injury claim. Here is what we recommend you do if you are in a safe and secure position to do so after your crash:
Document The Accident
Even one day after a car accident, it can be challenging to recreate the events of the collision. By taking a few minutes to take pictures and videos of the accident scene, any factors that may have helped cause it, and even the surrounding road conditions, you are providing yourself with an additional and vital resource in your accident compensation claim.
The more information you collect at the accident, the better. Witness testimony is the most accurate immediately following an accident, so be sure to record any statements a witness of the accident is willing to give you. Also, be sure to collect the license, license plate, car details and contact information of the other driver. Before even getting out of the car after the collision, be sure to collect the car information if the at-fault driver tries to flee the accident scene.
Call The Police
After a serious injury, the police can offer many services to help you. A police report that comes from calling officers for help can be an additional piece of evidence in your compensation claim. Additionally, police officers can also help clear the scene of the accident, reroute traffic and clean any car parts from the road. They can also send an ambulance at your request for any medical attention you may need.
