What to Do After a Car Accident

You’ve just been in a car accident off Highway 190 around Opelousas, LA. Your nerves are rattled, and you’re not sure what to do. Follow the three C’s to make sure you’re taken care of now and in the future:

  1. Check for safety – Look around and make sure you are in a safe place. Do not get out of the car if it is not safe. If it’s a minor accident, pull your car over to the side of the road and out of the way of traffic. Check yourself and passengers for injuries. Call 911 if necessary.
  2. Collect information – Once you know that you and your passengers are ok, check on the other car(s) involved in the accident. Take pictures of all cars involved and the scene of the accident. Exchange insurance and contact information with other driver(s). Get contact information for any witnesses.
  3. Call an experienced local car accident lawyer – Your lawyer’s job is to protect you from issues both big and small. If there is confusion on who caused the accident, you want an experienced attorney in your corner. If anyone is injured, you need a lawyer in case of medical bills down or loss of wages in the future. Unfortunately, insurance companies don’t always act with your best interests in mind. Hiring a lawyer can ensure that you are protected from your or the other driver’s insurer. An experienced lawyer can also go over your policy with you and help with confusing paperwork associated with your claim. Whether your problems are big or small, you need a car accident lawyer from Morrow, Gates & Morrow in Opelousas.
