5 Things You Must Know About Auto Accidents

Every 14 seconds someone is injured in an Auto Accident. No matter how safely you drive, you could be the one who is injured. Serious accidents are often life changing and can be very stressful for both you and your family. Bare Law Firm has created this simple list to help alleviate some of this stress by preparing you for what happens after an Auto Accident.

1. Make sure no one is injured. The shock from an accident can cause drivers and passengers
to overlook serious injuries. Take time to examine yourself and anyone else involved in the
accident. If someone needs medical attention call 911 immediately. Even if you don't think you're injured, we recommended that you visit a doctor after you leave the scene of the accident.

2. Call the police. You should request to have a law enforcement officer come to the scene of the accident. Be sure to cooperate with the investigating officer, they are there to help you. The officer will complete an accident report once they arrive. This report is designed to make an accurate record of the accident, so it's important that you answer their questions honestly. Make sure to take your own photos of the damage to the cars and any physical injuries you've suffered, do not rely on the officer to do this.

3. Exchange Information. You should get the name, phone number, address, driver license
number, license plate number, insurance policy number, and insurance company for any other
drivers involved in the accident. Next, exchange contact information with anyone who witnessed
the accident. Witnesses can provide attorneys and law enforcement officers with a unbiased
report of the events. Their testimony can help to ensure you are fairly compensated for your
financial and physical injuries.

4. Contact Your Insurance Company. Tell your insurance company that you've been in an auto
accident. It's important to tell them exactly what happened, be honest with them. If they find out
that you lied to them they may deny your coverage completely. Do not discuss the auto accident
with any representatives from another driver's insurance company. We strongly encourage you to
hire an experienced attorney to communicate with the insurance companies.
