What to Do After an Auto Accident
To protect your best interests and chances of securing maximized compensation, it is important to act deliberately and carefully after an auto accident. To begin, call 911. Even if it seems no one was injured, emergency responders should be summoned to the scene to help control it and to provide an accident report later. You should seek immediate medical attention if necessary and not turn down the services of onsite EMTs, either.
Obtain as much information as you can from the other driver including their name, contact information, driver's license number, and insurance information. Never sign anything or admit fault, for it can be misconstrued as an admittance of liability later. Use your cellphone camera to take pictures of the scene, too.
Most importantly out of all of these steps is to seek medical attention. Many auto accident claims filed hinge upon the ability to connect the plaintiff’s injuries to what is noted in their medical records. Any inconsistencies can deconstruct a plaintiff’s claim!
Am I Eligible to File a Claim?
If another party's negligence was responsible for your auto accident in Kentucky, you are probably eligible to file a claim to recover your damages.
