How to Obtain Compensation for Damages

The team at Price, Petho & Anderson is committed to putting forth every effort to pursue fair compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and all other costs. We are unique in that we have a skilled investigator on staff to assist with this process. This allows us to gather all of the facts that will be needed to build a strong case.

Details that can help the outcome of a car accident case include:

  • Proving the existence of injuries with medical records and examinations
  • Showing the other driver’s liability as much as possible
  • Producing evidence of the event, such as photographs, medical examinations, and anything else that could prove the other person’s fault

Steps to Take After a Car Accident

  • Step 1: Move to a Safe Area (If Possible)

    • If the car accident is relatively minor, move vehicles out of traffic to a safe location. Park your vehicle, turn off the engine, and turn on the safety hazards. If moving your car isn’t an option, turn on your hazard lights to warn other motorists to move around the scene of the crash.
  • Step 2: Check for Injuries

    • Check yourself for any injuries, then check your passengers if they suffered any harm. If any serious injuries are evident, seek immediate medical attention by contacting an ambulance.
  • Step 3: Call the Police

    • Even if there are only minor injuries involved in the collision, it is wise to contact law enforcement. An officer can provide a police accident report that can be used as valuable evidence when dealing with car insurance companies and other parties. Only describe how the accident occurred and avoid admitting fault or blaming the other drivers involved. If you do not know the facts, let the officer know. Allow law enforcement to objectively determine who is to blame and how the events transpired.
  • Step 4: Gather Information

    • Collect the following information from others involved in the crash:
    • Names and contact information (i.e. phone numbers and addresses) of drivers and passengers involved, as well as eyewitnesses
    • Vehicle descriptions (i.e. make, model, year, and color)
    • License plate numbers
    • Driver’s license numbers
    • Insurance companies and policy numbers
    • Police officer’s name and badge number
    • Accident scene address and/or location
  • Step 5: Document the Scene

    • Whether you use the camera on your smartphone or a portable digital version, take photographs of the accident scene. Pictures are considered one of the most convincing pieces of evidence in a car accident claim or personal injury lawsuit. Snap photos of each vehicle, the damage involved (both exterior and interior), license plates, any injuries, skid marks, road conditions, street signs and traffic lights, and the entire scene of the collision.
  • Step 6: Report the Accident

    • Notify your insurer and start the claims process immediately at the scene. Just like speaking to the police, only provide the basic details and do not admit fault. If you are too upset by the accident, sometimes a police officer and provide your insurance company with more accurate information.
  • Step 7: Hire an Attorney

    • If you have been injured in the crash, you must consult an experienced car accident lawyer. An attorney can protect your rights and best interests against other parties and insurance companies. He/she can determine your available legal options and help you obtain compensation for your injuries and property damage.
