Your Car Accident Victim Checklist

 

  • Call the police — No matter what happens, no matter how minor, and no matter how much the other person asks you not to call the police, call the police. The police will prepare an incident report and make sure you get all the necessary information like each person’s insurance information, and time and date of the accident
  • Call 911 to report any injuries — Make sure to use Baltimore’s emergency services if anyone is injured during the accident.
  • NEVER leave the accident — After the police have been called, it’s imperative not to move the cars or leave the area yourself.
  • Do not admit fault or blame to the other driver — It is never a good idea to discuss who is at fault at the car accident scene. Anything you say to the other driver could be used against you later by both the insurance company and in court.
  • Photos, Photos, Photos — Nothing is more valuable than indisputable evidence and photos are exactly that. Take pictures of the position of the cars, take photos of the surrounding area, and take any photos of obvious injuries at the scene.
  • Get Information From EVERYONE Involved — The Baltimore car accident lawyers at Saller, Lord, Ernstberger & Insley cannot stress enough the importance of obtaining contact information including names, addresses, and phone numbers of all eyewitnesses and passengers involved in a car accident. When there are conflicting versions of how the wreck happened, the success or failure of claims arising out of the car accident often hinges on whether there is an independent eyewitness who can support your version of events. That is why it is so important to get everyone’s information who witnessed the car accident.
  • Go To Hospital If You Are In Any Pain — It is extremely important to be evaluated by a medical professional, even if the pain is mild. You have no idea what internal damage might have been caused by the accident.
  • Schedule a follow-up with your primary care provider — If you went to the emergency room following the car accident, you were probably instructed to follow-up with your primary care doctor. Even if you were seen in the hospital, it is always a good idea to schedule an appointment with your primary care doctor following the hospital visit.
