4 Steps to Take After a Crash

by Staff | May 29th, 2019

At Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin, we understand that the aftermath of an accident can feel like a blur—but we also know that the actions you take in the moments following a crash can be critical for your auto accident claim. Start protecting your rights immediately after the crash by taking these 4 steps:

  • Get medical attention—Whether you receive medical treatment from emergency responders or at the hospital, getting medical attention as soon as possible after the crash creates a medical record linking your injuries to the accident. This can also identify any internal injuries and set you on the path to recovering to the best of your ability.
  • Document the accident—If you’re able to do so, take photos of the scene of the accident, exchange contact information with witnesses and the other drivers involved, and write down what happened. All of this can serve as evidence for your claim.
  • Notify your insurance provider—Most insurance companies require policyholders to notify them within a day or two of the crash.
  • Call an Indiana auto accident attorney—The sooner you contact an attorney, the better. Let us investigate the crash, calculate your injury-related expenses, and help you get the compensation you deserve.
