Important Steps To Take After An Auto Accident
Motor vehicle accidents occur frequently on streets and highways throughout Winchester, Prince William County and the Shenandoah Valley. While some drivers and passengers escape harm, many must cope with severe injuries — as well as the staggering medical bills and other traumatic consequences that result from a collision.
If you have been injured and believe another driver was at fault, there are several steps you should take in the immediate aftermath. Most importantly, you should seek medical attention and contact the police. If possible, you should also get contact and insurance information from the other driver and phone numbers for any witnesses. It is also crucial to take photographs of the scene, the vehicles involved and your injuries.
Obtaining The Compensation You Deserve
Unfortunately, fault is often disputed, and other problems can arise when attempting to recover the compensation you deserve. Insurance companies routinely undervalue claims — and will often seek to dismiss claims outright.
