What to Do After an Accident

After you or your loved was involved in a car accident, it is imperative that you contact the police immediately. Your best chance for a favorable ruling or settlement in a car accident case is to have comprehensive records of the accident and its aftermath. Records you should collect for legal action include:

  • An accident report filed with the police
  • The insurance information of the car that hit you
  • The other driver’s contact information
  • Photographs of the accident scene
  • Contact information for any witnesses to the accident
  • Your medical care and expenses following the accident

Immediately after a car accident you or your loved one needs to consult a doctor. Drivers and passengers often suffer serious injuries that can have them hospitalized. Many injuries will not manifest immediately, some symptoms can manifest hours, days or weeks after an accident. Insurance companies may try to claim that your injuries are not serious if you do not seek immediate medical attention.

Be sure to seek legal advice from an car accident lawyer early in the process and do not sign anything or make any statements without the approval of your lawyer.

Failure to Stop

Accidents where a vehicle fails to stop at a stop sign or red light can be detrimental. Whether the driver was negligent or distracted, they are at fault for failing to stop when legally required.

Commercial Car Accidents

Commercial car accidents are often severe. Truck accidents can result in numerous injuries ranging from minor to serious. Determining who is at fault in a commercial car accident is often complicated. This is because truck accidents can occur due to driver negligence or a mechanical defect. Therefore, determining fault can be complicated.

Drunk Driving Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 44 percent of all car accident deaths, in South Carolina, involved a drunk driver. Driving after having consumed alcohol impairs a driver's balance, vision, motor skills and cognitive skills.

Speeding

Speeding is one of the main causes of driving accidents. The higher the speed of the vehicle the less control a driver has over the car and the higher the chance of an accident. Exceeding the speed limit is illegal and raises the stakes of accidents.
