Car accident steps
Here the top five car accident steps you should take after a Carroll County automobile accident.
Do not admit fault
Let the police do their job and draw their own conclusions.
Write down the facts
Write down a brief narrative of what happened. Include any statements made by the other driver. Finally, draw a sketch of the area where the accident occurred.
Take photos of your vehicle, the other driver’s vehicle, and any relevant details at the scene. Property damage is an important part of a personal injury case. The insurance companies love to deny claims involving minor property damage.
Get names and phone numbers of any witnesses. Also ask them to give you a brief description of what they saw and ask for their contact information.
Don’t sign or verbally agree to anything from the other driver’s insurance company until you have consulted with a Carroll County Personal Injury Attorney. You don’t have to give a statement to the other person’s insurance company.
