Following An Auto Accident
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Are you prepared in the event that you may be involved in an auto accident?
Many people aren’t concerned with the steps to follow if an accident
occurs, but they should be. Not only will a person have an auto accident
in their lifetime, the frequency of accidents means that a person will
likely have three to four auto accidents within their lifetime. In fact,
there are approximately 27,000 auto accidents that occur each day equaling
around 10 million accidents a year on average, according to the
Department of Motor Vehicles.
The following steps are important to follow if you are involved in a crash…
1. Get Safe….Stay in your vehicle if there is a danger or move to
a safe location if possible. NEVER LEAVE THE SCENE.
2. Determine if you or anyone else has suffered any injuries.
3. Call 911 to report the accident and to seek medical assistance if necessary.
4. If the police give you any instructions, follow their direction.
5. Contact an experienced auto accident attorney.
Now, as we all know an auto accident can vary in several ways from the
number of vehicles involved, the amount of damage to a vehicle or other
property involved, as well as if individuals incur injuries and the severity
of those injuries. While several types of vehicles are similar, no two
accidents are the same. Another variant in auto accidents is one of the
most important…the cause. The cause of the crash can seem simple
but often be complex requiring the expertise and experience of an outstanding attorney.
