What do I do after an accident if I’m not at fault?

You may be in a situation where you ask yourself “what do I do after an accident if I’m not at fault?” Well, the first thing to do is to call the police first. Get the medical attention that you need. After that, the next thing to do is to call an attorney immediately. See what your legal options are and to see what your rights are. When you are not at fault for an automobile accident, then you have the right and the ability to obtain compensation under the law for what you have gone through. What is the compensation for? It involves obtaining compensation for your car to get it fixed. Second of all, it also helps pay for your medical bills. Often times, there is money that is also available through your own insurance company that can provide you some help with payment of the medical benefits.

One important thing you should do right away is your best to document everything. Take pictures of the vehicles that are involved and take pictures of your injuries if you have anything. In addition, when you go into your medical providers, be forthright with them and explain to them everything that you are going through. This is because the medical records in most cases are the best evidence as to all the problems that you’re really going through.
