Steps to Take after an Oklahoma Car Accident

By Car Accident Help on July 19, 2012

Have you thought about what to do if you are ever involved in an Oklahoma car accident? The steps you take immediately following the collision can affect your ability to pursue compensation for your injuries, damages, and losses in the future.

First, check yourself, your passengers, and the other parties involved in the crash for injuries. If anyone has suffered an injury, you are legally required to contact the authorities right away. If your neck, back, or head hurts, you may want to stay where you are and wait for help. If you are capable of moving around without suffering further injury, you should begin collecting information that can be very important during the claims process.

Be sure to get the name, contact, and insurance information from the drivers involved in the crash. Collect the contact information from anyone who may have witnessed the collision as well. If you have a camera, or a phone that takes pictures, photograph the crash site, the vehicles, tire marks, and your injuries. Also, write down where, when, and how the crash occurred.

When the authorities arrive, get your account of the incident into the police report. If police do not arrive, file a report at the station as soon as possible. Next, you should seek medical attention. Seeing a doctor promptly will increase your chances of a full recovery. Additionally, your medical records can serve as legal proof of your injuries.

If you have suffered a serious injury, or you worry that the at-fault driver will refuse to accept blame for the incident, please contact the experienced Oklahoma City auto accident injury attorneys at Maples Law Firm. Call us at (888) 226-6159 to obtain more information about pursuing your legal rights.
