What else should I do after a car accident?

By John Singleton on June 7, 2013

  1. Notify your insurance company about the wreck, so you can obtain a rental car and medical payments insurance coverage if they are part of your policy.
  2. Notify the at-fault driver’s insurance company right away too. Sometimes at-fault drivers do not notify their insurance companies about a wreck right away, and that failure can affect your ability to recover from the at-fault driver’s insurance coverage.
  3. Attend all of your doctor’s appointments and therapy sessions, and keep all your receipts.
  4. Make sure to find out where your vehicle has been towed, so that investigators can examine your vehicle and preserve important evidence.
  5. Keep a diary of your recovery, and photograph and/or record your injuries. Remember, it’s always better to have too much information than not enough.
