what should you do after a car accident

In a Car Wreck? Use This Post-Accident Checklist

Getting into a car, motorcycle or truck accident can mess up your day. At a minimum, you’ll feel frazzled. If the accident is more severe, you could be seriously hurt.

Today, while you’re spending time online (and not in your car!), read the tips in our colorful and downloadable post-accident checklist shown below. The information will help you prioritize what to do when — and, hopefully, help you stay calm, cool and collected (as much as possible) in a challenging situation.

If another individual caused your injury, be sure to explain your situation to a personal injury lawyer ASAP and before agreeing to settle with the person’s insurance company. (Profit-focused insurance companies try to pay as little as possible. That’s a well-known fact.)

Phoenix-Area Personal Injury Lawyers

We (Jacob Fleming and Bob Monroe) are personal injury attorneys located in Mesa and serving the Southeast Valley and beyond. In your first personal injury consultation with us — it’s at no cost to you, by the way — you can explain what happened, and we can let you know how we could help you.

You won’t pay anything for our services beyond the first meeting, either. That’s because we work on a contingency basis at Fleming & Monroe. This means that if we take on your personal injury case, you don’t pay the attorney fees. And we receive our compensation only if we win your case. (Learn more about the details of how this works here: How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?)

One other thing you should know about us: We both worked in the insurance industry and “know the ropes” about how to best represent our clients so they receive the appropriate compensation for their personal injuries.

So … without further delay, here’s our easy-to-read checklist.
