Following an accident, there are some important things you must do. Our Colorado car accident lawyers at McDivitt Law Firm state that these will greatly increase your chances of receiving maximum damages.
1. Organize Your Contacts
Collect the names, addresses, and phone numbers of the other parties involved, anyone you spoke to at the scene, or any witnesses of the accident. Have these contacts organized so you can share them with your Colorado car accident lawyer. Using your camera or cell phone, take photographs of the scene and damage to all vehicles involved.
If you didn’t collect the contact information of anyone at the scene, you can find this information in the traffic accident report available at your local police station or the Colorado car accident lawyers at McDivitt Law Firm will help you obtain this report.
2. Visit A Doctor
Even if you don’t think you’re hurt, sometimes injuries take time to present themselves.We recommend that all of our clients visit a doctor on the same day of the accident – but at least the following day, regardless of the severity. Be sure to take notes about how you feel after the accident, what the doctor says, and how you are recovering. Also, let the doctor know of every pain you feel. Do not ‘hide’ these symptoms from your doctor, no matter how slight.
3. Don’t Sign Anything
If your insurance company or the insurance company of the other party contacts you, do not sign anything without talking to our Colorado car accident attorneys first. Signing paperwork from an insurance company may mean you are signing away your rights to compensation.
