Follow These Steps If Injured in An Auto Accident

Injured in a car accident? Follow these steps!

First and foremost, contact the police and if you are injured, ask for medical assistance immediately.  Once you and everyone in your vehicle and any other vehicles are safe and out harm’s way, we recommend a few things.

  1. Contact the police and make a police report.
  2. Get as much information from the at fault driver that caused your accident as possible. Things like:
    • Their name
    • VIN number
    • Plate number
    • Address and phone
    • Insurance information, etc.
  3. Contact your auto-insurance company and advise them of your accident immediately. Set up a claim for any damage done to your car.  Also, set up no fault or PIP claim if you have been injured.

A no fault or PIP claim entitles you to get things like wage loss, medical bills, household help payment, medical mileage reimbursement, nursing care, etc.  If this was a hit and run contact your insurance immediately and give them as much information as possible right away.  Keep copies if everything you send them, document what you send and when.

What’s next after your car accident?

Once all this preliminary stuff is take care of, it’s time to start thinking about whether you need an auto accident attorney to represent you on this matter.  You may not feel comfortable dealing with your no fault claim yourself, especially if you feel the insurance company is not paying you for everything you are entitled to receive.  You certainly may want to talk to an attorney about making an injury claim against the at fault driver.  You may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering.  In our opinion it is best to get information from a personal injury attorney who specializes in auto law.  That way, you know all your rights are protected.

  • Dear Mr. Mindell,
    Your slogan states: “Experience Dedication Success”. I believe in my heart, strongly added to that should have been, “Honest Fair Integrity”. For those are the finest principles in you, and that was my experience of what you most importantly instilled and guide your practice on. Thank you so much. I do so respect you.
