If there's one thing our Arkansas car accident lawyers have learned over our decades of work in the field, it's that the steps you take in the immediate aftermath of an accident will go a long way toward determining the success of any future legal action you might take.
We know it can be tough to keep this in mind right after you've suffered an accident. But it's important after your car accident to protect your health and legal options.
How can you do this? We recommend you take the following steps:
- Take photos of the accident scene. They don't have to be professional quality, but make sure you get photos of the cars and the environment.
- Get the other driver's insurance information. Stay calm, don't instigate anything and don't admit any fault, but exchange information in a calm, professional manner.
- Seek medical attention. Even if you feel fine, you should talk to your doctor and get yourself checked out. Health problems resulting from an accident can take some time to show up, while chronicling your time in the medical system can prove invaluable should you pursue legal action.
- Talk to our car accident lawyers as soon as possible. Many people fail to realize they even have a case, which prevents them from getting the compensation they deserve.
Remember: your initial consultation is free and does not obligate you to choose our firm or force you to pursue a claim. Instead, it's a chance to talk to our attorneys and get a sense of your legal options.
