San Francisco Car Accident Attorney

Steps to Take Right Away After a Vehicle Collision

Whether commuting to the market or work, picking up groceries at the store or bringing your kids home from school–whether driving for fun, profit, convenience of necessity-there’s an understanding that our fellow drivers in vehicles would obey traffic regulations and drive sensibly. But in the crowded San Francisco Bay Area, not all drivers put safety first.

All too likely here are drivers who drive negligently under the influence or speed crazily. In particular, many vehicles need fixing up. Malfunctioning turn signals; broken headlights; and worn brakes are all problems that commonly arise.

Therefore, one needs to be prepared and alert. It is important to know the first steps one should take after being involved in an accident, both for your own safety and so that you can get compensation. This is especially important in the age of distracted drivers.

All types of vehicular accidents, from minor scrapes to major crashes are covered in the guidelines below.

Always Call for Help

Notifying the police, and making a report of any car accident. Their files are important in proving fault and winning compensation. The police will record the particulars of everyone involved and gather each person’s individual account of what happened.

Information gathering Proactive but cautious

It’s recommended that you collect the information yourself if possible, but be advised: there is a good chance people who are responsible for large losses behind the wheel will not want to talk. For example, there are many drivers without a valid license or insurance. Under such circumstances, police officers are usually better able than prosecutors to obtain necessary documentation and reliable accounts.

Collect Contacts From All Involved.

Be sure to obtain contact information and insurance data from the other drivers involved. Even if such details seem trivial, for both your records and to help an auto accident lawyer prepare a claim they are quite important. If there are witnesses to the accident, get their contact information. Note their initial reactions and important observations. Witness accounts are also key to confirming what actually happened, and in establishing who or where the fault lies.

Not All Hopes Are From Traffic Camera

Don’t forget that although traffic cameras can be seen everywhere, they aren’t always in good working condition or able to record the entire scene of a car accident. This is especially true in less crowded areas or smaller streets.

Additionally, there may not be available traffic camera footage to review in more secluded zones of the bay area or at more minor side street intersections.

See a doctor as soon as possible after an accident. The surge in adrenaline can hide serious injuries. These delayed symptoms, including whiplash injury and back injuries may not show until later. Having a medical record right from the beginning gives your case more strength.

Why You Need a Car Accident Attorney’s Help

When it comes to negotiating with insurance companies and injury claims, many people have a shared misconception that they can handle things themselves. But in case of serious injury, this approach is not recommended. Insurance companies, predictably enough, see profit first and give unrepresented claimants low compensation offers.

Insurance providers may seem cooperative at first, promising fair compensation. However, they often employ tricks to weaken the victim’s case when making allowances. Such include sending someone requesting recorded statements about accidents and injuries and arranging medical examinations by their doctors; then offering an unfairly low settlement amount.
