Car Accident

Do you drive in Monroe frequently for work or pleasure? While Monroe is a great place to live, shop, visit, and work, the roads can get busy. In some cases, the drivers on Monroe roads and highways get into accidents. What should you do if you are involved in a Monroe car accident? On this page, we outline some of the immediate steps that you can take to protect yourself as well as how to proceed with a personal injury lawsuit if this is an option that you want to take advantage of.

Steps to Take After a Monroe Car Accident

Monroe car accidents can be unexpected and unfair. If you were involved in a car accident that you think is someone else’s fault, there are some steps that you should take to ensure your safety and set yourself up for a successful lawsuit in the future.

One of the first things to do after a Monroe car accident is to contact the police. The other party may insist that you can sort things out on your own and you don’t need the police to come to the scene of the accident. They may especially make this suggestion if they are aware that they were responsible for the accident and do not want to be blamed. Don’t let the other party talk you out of calling the police. Having the police present can help establish a clear summary of the car crash and establishes who is at-fault in an official accident report. Without this report, it is just your word against the other party’s in court. Support your case by having an official accident report written and submitted.

Another immediate action that you should take after a Monroe car crash is to seek medical help for those involved in the accident. You might not feel injured or you might think that your injuries are minor, but it is still best to have a medical professional determine the extent of your injuries. This is vital for your health and safety as well as a potential personal injury case. Documenting your injuries is important if you want to file a lawsuit later on.

Soon after an accident, you should also think about informing your car insurance company of the crash. Your car insurance company will be involved in this process and may front money for car repairs, rental cars, etc. They will ultimately need to be reimbursed by the at-fault party’s insurance company.
