Important things to do immediately following a car or truck crash

blogimages2-650×366-1.jpg

Steps that many people don’t know to do:

  • When safe to do so, check for injuries.
  • Call 911/police.
  • Request that police be sent to the scene.
  • Report any pain/discomfort to police officer(s).
  • Get medical help immediately (report urgent care needs to 911 operators).
  • Identify witnesses (obtain name, number, address) (investigating officers rarely include this information in their police report).
  • Obtain a copy of the at-fault driver’s insurance card and driver’s license.
  • Take photos of all vehicles involved and the scene.
  • Obtain tow truck driver’s business card/info.
  • Identify the location where your vehicle will be towed (it will start accruing daily storage fees).
  • Do NOT post photos, videos, comments, status updates on social media about the crash or your injuries.
  • Call Israel Garcia, Personal Injury Attorney, and his legal team at 210-LAW-9999 immediately!
