Important steps to take after your car accident by experienced lawyer Brad Pistotnik
Brad Pistotnik is an experienced personal injury attorney and trial lawyer. It is important to seek the advice of an accident attorney who has been dealing with the insurance companies and how they treat injury accident victims. There are many things to take into consideration after you are the unfortunate victim of a distracted driver. The most important thing to do is to make sure you and your passengers are alright. Seek out medical attention immediately if you feel any pain or think you have an injury. The best thing to do is go to the emergency room and have the necessary tests done to figure out what possible injuries you have sustained from the wreck. If you don’t go to the hospital it is a big red flag to the insurance company and they are less likely to take your case seriously.
Take pictures of any of your injuries and damage to yours and the other persons vehicle if possible. A picture is worth more than words when it comes to injuries and accidents. Bruises, cuts and scrapes disappear and you need documentation of your injuries and the damage to your vehicle.
Write down the names of everyone that is at the scene of the accident for possible witnesses and police reports. The insurance company will try and blame you for your accident and it is very important to have witnesses who can support your side of the accident.
Do not post anything on social media about your accident. Insurance companies will look at all of your social media and use it against you.
