What to Do After a Motor Vehicle Accident

Wisconsin Car and Truck Accident Attorney

Actions to Take After an Accident

Being involved in an accident can be a truly traumatic experience. It is advised that you call the police in order to document the accident and to have a report written. Next, exchange your insurance information with the other parties involved in the accident. It is highly recommended that you do not automatically admit fault to anyone because this can be used against you later. If you are injured, seek medical attention immediately. Your health and well-being are very important, and you will need a doctor to appropriately care for your injuries. Lastly, contact an attorney to discuss your options before contacting any insurance company.

Full and Fair Compensation

In order for you to receive the most from your accident, you need to consult with a professional and experienced attorney as soon as possible. After talking to the police and possibly seeking medical attention, keep in mind a few things:

  • Do not make any statements to the insurance company or sign anything until you have consulted first with an attorney. He or she will help protect your interests and will try to maximize your coverage.
  • Do not automatically admit your fault. This can be used against you in denying your claims.
  • Document all medical visits and follow through with your doctor's advice and recommendations. These reports will help support your case and claims for compensation. Your health and recovery are important.
