What To Do If You Have Been In An Accident

Last updated on November 13, 2023

Preserving evidence, beginning the moment you are involved in an accident, is critical in order to win your case and maximize the award. At Scott and Scott, P.A., we can address your needs and make sure you are protected every step of the way in car accident claims and personal injury matters.We advise our clients to:
  • Always have a family member photograph all vehicles involved and the accident scene (especially skid or scuff marks) as soon as possible after the accident.
  • While you must cooperate with your insurance company and give them a statement, never give a statement to the other driver’s insurance company.
  • Have someone photograph your injuries as soon as possible.
  • Keep a daily diary noting what pain you experience, doctor’s visits and how the accident has disrupted your daily routine.
  • Do not sign any forms provided by the other driver’s insurance company without first having them reviewed by an attorney.
  • Call a lawyer as soon as possible, to assist you in preserving evidence and determining whether it is necessary to hire an accident reconstructionist.
