Consider the following FAQ to learn more about how you can avoid making mistakes after a car accident.

Is it ever okay to leave the scene early?

Car accidents often leave people running late to work or otherwise have their lives interfered with. Despite the urge to want to get out of the situation and move on with the day, do not leave the scene early. You should make sure that you have the other driver’s information, in addition to gathering plenty of evidence. Examples of proof to document at the scene are listed as follows:

  • Pictures of your visible injuries
  • Pictures of damage to both cars
  • The other driver’s information
  • The name of the police officer who wrote a report
  • Pictures of debri, skid marks, or weather conditions

Do I really need a lawyer to help?

Not every car accident is going to warrant contacting a lawyer. If you were hurt badly enough to where you accumulated medical bills, lost out on pay for missing work, or experienced other financial hardships, a Richmond, VA car accident lawyer can help you get fair restitution. A lawyer is someone with an attuned knowledge of law and will be able to advise you properly on what to do, and what not to do.

Do I need to get medical attention?

Even if you think you have been hurt in the accident, it is possible that you were. By going to a doctor right away, they can evaluate your condition to see if there are potential injuries that you just haven’t noticed yet. A common example of this is a condition called whiplash, which many people get some degree of after being in a car collision. Symptoms of whiplash may not develop until days, weeks, or months later. By seeking medical attention now, you get the care you need and proof of your injuries if you decide to pursue compensation or negotiate your insurance settlement.
