I have been in a car accident in Cookeville – now what?
After you have been in a car crash in Cookeville, you should seek out medical attention as soon as possible – even if you do not “feel” injured. The symptoms may not be present right away, which can complicate your case later if you do not have appropriate medical attention. Seeing a doctor within the first two weeks of your crash is the best move. If you believe you or your passenger may have sustained a serious injury that requires attention at that moment, call an ambulance.
If, however, you feel confident enough in the immediate aftermath to move your car from the roadway, and if it is safe to do so, pull your car over to the shoulder. Contact the local police – you will want their statement – as well as your insurance company. Take pictures of the roadway, your car and the other vehicle, and of your passengers. Exchange insurance information with the other driver, or wait until the police arrive to do this, if that makes you feel more comfortable.
Once you are safe – either in a hospital, at home, at a repair shop, etc. – then it is time to consult your personal injury attorney. We can advise you how to proceed, handle the insurance companies, and communicate with your doctors so we can document the evidence you will need for your claim.
Car crashes are frightening experiences, and our natural tendency to panic is completely understandable. There are certain steps you should take after a car accident that can help you later if you or someone else suffers an injury as a result. Call the police – always. Regardless of who is “to blame” in the situation,…Read More
