With 30 years of experience in the field, Mr. Warnock and his talented staff can examine your case and determine the best way to move forward. In the meantime, the following steps are what the firm has determined to be the best course of action immediately following an accident.
Seek Medical Attention
Even if you think you aren't injured, it is important to see a doctor as soon as possible following an accident. Some injuries take time to manifest themselves and are harder to attribute to the accident if you don't document them right away.
If possible, exchange insurance information with the other driver at the scene of the accident. Do not say anything to the effect that you were at fault, even if you think you might have been. Also, make sure the police are called so you can file a report.
If the other driver does not have insurance, you still may have options for your case.
Talk To Your Insurance Company
Call your insurance company following the accident, but do not accept any immediate settlement offer from them or from the other driver's insurance company. Remember, insurance companies are motivated to settle your claim as quickly as possible and at the lowest cost to them.
Call An Attorney Right Away
