What Should You Do Immediately after an Oklahoma Car Accident?

By Car Accident Help on January 10, 2013

Oklahoma City car accident lawyers are often asked about the steps that must be taken immediately after a crash. If you have been involved in a collision, it is important to take several actions in order to protect your rights.

First, it is vital that you file an official report with the police agency that responds to the collision. Do not admit fault. Merely state the facts.

It is important that you obtain the name, address, insurance information, vehicle license number, and driver’s license information for all parties involved in the accident. Also, if there is anyone who witnessed the incident, make sure that you obtain contact information for those individuals as well. If you have a disposable camera or a cell phone camera, photograph the accident scene including all the vehicles involved and injuries sustained.

One of the most important steps you need to take after an accident is to get yourself checked by a doctor. Some injuries may be immediately seen or felt. However, there are many types of accident injuries that may surface several days or even weeks after an accident. Getting prompt medical treatment will not only create a record of your injuries and medical expenses, but will also maximize your chances of a quick and complete recovery.

Please do not sign any papers or enter into an agreement without first consulting your own injury lawyer. It is never a good idea to give the insurance company or any other party access to your personal information such as medical records. Please be wary of any paperwork that you are asked to sign.

The experienced personal injury attorneys at the Maples Law Firm have successfully handled numerous car accident cases and have helped injured victims secure fair and full compensation for their losses. Please contact us at (888) 226-6159 for a no-cost consultation and case evaluation.
