What Steps Should I Take After a Car Wreck?
At the scene of the accident you should attempt to move your car from oncoming traffic to protect yourself and your property from further damage. You should call the police in most circumstances, especially if someone is injured or killed, your car is not drivable or if you were the victim of a hit and run. The police will investigate the accident and create a report that will be useful in pursuing your claim for damages, if any. When interacting with the other driver(s) please attempt to write down their names, addresses, phone and license plate numbers and their auto insurance company and policy number. If there are any witnesses you should get their names, addresses and phone numbers as well. If the police are called to the scene they will obtain much of this information and include it in their report. Once you leave the scene of the accident, you should contact us at 1.888.US4.JURY so we can help gather all of the relevant information about your car wreck. We can contact the insurance company on your behalf to report a claim and explain the claims process to you.
