Car Accident FAQs


What Should I Do After a Car Accident?

Answer: There are several steps you can take after an accident to protect yourself and ensure that you will be able to obtain full compensation for your injuries and damages. First, be safe. If possible, move your car off the road and wait in a safe spot. You will need to report the accident to the police. Call 911 instead of the non-emergency number if there are injury concerns. A police officer who arrives on the scene will prepare a crash report that may play a critical role in establishing fault (liability) for the crash. The police officer can also help with the facilitation of information exchange with the other driver(s). After the accident, seek immediate medical care if you are experiencing pain, discomfort, or range of motion problems. Presenting to a traditional emergency room is preferable to a primary care physician or a standalone “emergency clinic” for many reasons, including being superior for care of your injuries in addition to your case.


What Should I Do After a Car Accident That Was Not My Fault?

Answer: Follow the same steps as above by minimizing danger and contacting the police. You will want to get the other driver’s name, contact information, and insurance information (if any). If anyone else witnessed the accident, obtain their contact information as well. It is best to seek medical attention if you suspect any type of injury. Contact a qualified personal injury attorney as soon as possible so that they can promptly begin their investigation.


How Do I Get a Police Report From a Car Accident?

Answer: First, it is important to ensure that a police report is created by calling the police while you are at the accident scene. The crash report will typically identify the at-fault party along with many other details that will be helpful for your personal injury attorney in the prosecution of your claim. Your personal injury attorney can obtain the crash report on your behalf.


How Long Does it Take to Receive a Settlement After a Car Accident?

Answer: This can depend on a number of factors. One of the most important considerations is whether liability is clear and the severity of injuries. After treatment is completed, we typically prepare a thorough demand package and provide the insurance company with approximately three weeks to respond. Generally, negotiations subsequently occur between our law firm and the insurance company. If the insurance company agrees to pay full value for the claim, the case can close. If they do not, litigation can commence, which takes some time until the case is resolved either via settlement or trial.


How Can I Prove That I Was Not at Fault in a Car Accident?

Answer: You will likely need a qualified personal injury attorney. Your legal team will conduct an investigation and seek out forms of evidence like witness testimony, footage from traffic or security cameras, physical evidence found at the crash site, and even a crash reconstruction analysis. This evidence can establish that the other party was at fault for the collision and the resulting injuries and damages you have suffered.


How Long After a Car Accident Can I File a Claim?

Answer: It is important to file a claim as soon as possible after your accident. Filing too late could mean that you will be unable to recover compensation. Generally, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit against a third party, but states have various statutes of limitations. There are usually different statutes of limitations for uninsured/underinsured motorist claims. You should seek a qualified personal injury attorney to ensure your claim is timely filed.
