What Should I Do After a Car Accident in Long Beach?

If you or someone you care about has recently been involved in a wreck, it is important to know you are not alone and there are options. By taking the following steps immediately, you can ensure your safety as well as protect your option to exercise legal action:

  1. Get medical attention. If you feel immediate pain or see a visible wound after a collision, call for emergency medical services. Allow them to examine you, and if they offer you an ambulance ride to the hospital, consider taking it. On the flipside, in a "minor" collision, you may not need paramedics at the scene, but speaking with a medical professional right after the accident is a prudent step to take. Hidden injuries can appear long after a wreck, and any documentation supplied by your doctor can become powerful evidence in a personal injury lawsuit later on.
  2. Record what you can. Whether you are currently standing along the highway waiting for the police or recovering in a hospital, collecting evidence of the wreck is of the utmost importance. You'll want to gather photographic and video evidence of the scene, your injuries, the other vehicles and their occupants, and any eyewitness contact information. If you cannot do so at the scene, ask a bystander to help. Obviously, it is important not to impede any police investigation, but securing these bits of proof can go a long way in proving your case to an insurance company, a jury, or both.
  3. Hold onto your damaged vehicle. It can be inconvenient to have your car in the shop, but specialists will need to assess the damage first to make their recommendations.
  4. Speak to a personal injury lawyer. Anything said between you and the at-fault party may be held against you later. Before you speak to that person or an insurance company, either yours or his, it is a good idea to contact a Long Beach personal injury attorney who can put your interests first.

Insurance companies are out to keep their bottom line as low as possible, meaning they intend to deny fault, or offer you a settlement right away for less than what you need to recover. There are many tactics the insurance adjuster can try on you, but they won’t try those same tactics on an experienced car accident attorney.
