What Can You Do after a Palmer Lake Car Accident
Immediately after an accident, the steps you take can have a significant impact on your ability to file a claim.
- Call 911 – this will immediately send the police and medical emergency crew to the accident site. A police report and a medical report are invaluable when proving both fault and injuries.
- Gather Evidence – if you are able, gather evidence at the accident scene. Snap pictures of the damage and the accident scene and record any eye witnesses contact information.
- Contact an Attorney – your attorney can review your case and determine if you are eligible to file a claim. Having a law firm on your side is invaluable when negotiating a fair settlement with the insurance company.
Don’t delay though – you only have 3 years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit. If you miss this deadline, you may not be able to ever file a lawsuit and collect the money you need.
