What To Do Right After An Accident
Call 911 – Make sure that you and any other people involved in the car accident are all right. Contact the police so they can assist in the auto accident process, and help determine who is liable for the auto accident.
Get Help to Move the Vehicles – If the vehicles involved in the car accident are obstructing traffic, but can be moved, get help to move them out of the way so that further damage can be avoided.
Collect Information – You need to obtain all the vehicle and contact information from all drivers and passengers in the other vehicles involved in the automobile accident. If possible take photos with your phone.
Do Not Make Any Statements of Admission – A car accident can leave you shaken and confused. Often, this results in an unintended admission of fault. Admitting you are at fault can impair any insurance claim, and it may not even be correct after all the facts have been collected. You do not have to give an adjuster a recorded statement or immediately sign anything from an insurance company about the accident.
Locate Witnesses – If there is anybody who witnessed the car accident, get their contact information. A witness testimony of your auto accident could be very helpful during the settlement of your car accident insurance claim.
Get Medical Attention – Sometime injuries sustained during an auto accident do not arise for some time after the accident occurred. You may feel OK, but you could be injured internally. Always seek medical attention after an auto accident. if you are not liable for the auto accident you may be able to receive compensation for any medical costs you have to pay following the accident.

You will be signing away your legal rights when you sign any kind of release. The adjuster may use tactics to avoid paying you the money you deserve.
