If you’ve been in a car crash, make sure you take the following actions.
Seek Medical Attention
If you've been hit by a car, you suddenly have a lot of worries that you never asked for. The first is your physical health; if you've been injured, your first priority is to seek immediate medical attention.
If you've been hit while riding a motorcycle, your injuries could be particularly severe. The same goes for people who get hit by a car while walking, or for those who collide with a car while riding a bike. Truck accidents can also inflict a great deal of damage, as the weight and mass of trucks far exceed those of cars, motorcycles, pedestrians, or bikes.
If you feel like you’ve escaped a car accident in Nashville unscathed, it's important not to assume you're fine. Even if you don't show immediate outward signs of injury, you could still be hurt. If symptoms show up later and you never sought medical attention for your injury, it becomes more difficult to convince an insurance company that your pain or other symptoms are a delayed result of the accident and not some other cause.
Document the Scene
If possible, take pictures of the accident site. These can be used later to reconstruct the accident. Exchange insurance information with the other driver(s) and call the police. If someone witnessed the car wreck, make sure they stick around to talk to the police and describe what they saw. If you can, write down what happened as you remember it while the memory is fresh.
Don't Deal with the Insurance Company
If you've been injured in a car accident, insurance companies know that you likely need compensation for your mounting bills as soon as possible. They will take advantage of this fact and try to offer you a quick settlement that is likely a far lower number than the full amount you deserve. An experienced Nashville personal injury lawyer will know where the insurance company is likely trying to cut corners to look out for its own bottom line.
