The Three Phone Calls You Should Make After a Severe Accident

A serious car accident can jeopardize your health and your future. What makes matters worse is that there is no guarantee that an accident victim will receive compensation for their injuries that accurately reflects the total cost of the injury. When more than two million car accidents result in permanent injuries every year, the victims need to know who they can call for help after their accident.

Here are the three people you should call after your accident:

The police

Police officers can help the victims of an accident in multiple ways. They can assess any injuries and determine if you need an ambulance if you previously did not think you were seriously hurt. Officers also create a police report that can be a useful tool in your compensation claim, and they also can call in help to assist with cleaning the wreckage of the accident.

Your insurance

In order for your insurance company to begin the process to help you, they first need to know about the injury. Once you are safe after the accident, call your insurance to report the accident. Your insurance agent can also confirm what information they need during that call and what can wait until later.

Your lawyer

While insurance companies are there to help you, they may not go out of their way to offer you the best possible compensation. A personal injury attorney can help you identify a fair value for your compensation proposal based on current and future expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. Lawyers can also advocate on your behalf during negotiation and litigation during your personal injury claim.

You are not alone

You do not have to try to recover from a car accident on your own. Reach out to the people whose job it is to help you, and let them do their job to secure the best possible outcome and protect your health and future.
