29 Jun Car Accident 4th of July Weekend? 5 Steps You Should Consider
4th of July Weekend is known for its fun, family time, and fireworks. It is also one of the biggest travel weekends of the year. And as we all know, with more people traveling on the roads, there are often times more car accidents. If you are involved in a car accident on 4th of July weekend, here are 5 steps that you should consider in order to make sure your claim is properly preserved:
1. Call the police
Calling the police after a car accident is important to get a report made with all of the relevant details. Even if there does not seem to be injuries, that crash report can make all the difference. This is especially true if there is a question of who is at fault.
2. Notate any witnesses
Witness statements after a car accident can be important to describe how the accident happened, who was at fault, and to describe the severity of the accident. Sometimes there are not witnesses, and that is okay. But, if there are witnesses, be sure to get their contact info.
3. Take pictures of EVERYTHING
As they say, pictures are worth 1000 words. This is especially true for car accidents. Take pictures of ALL vehicles involved in the accident (especially any damage), the scene, any licenses or insurance cards, and anything else you may find relevant.
4. Seek medical attention
No one wants to go to the doctors on a holiday weekend, and especially not the hospital. Sometimes, it is necessary. However, there are often 24/7 urgent cares that are very quick and easy to attend. It is important to get a baseline as to your injuries. Even if you do not feel hurt, it is important to get checked out to rule out any injuries that may not be visible from the outside.
5. Contact an experienced car accident attorney
Car accidents can be stressful. It is important to hire a qualified and experienced car accident attorney that will walk you through the process step by step. After all, this was not your fault and you deserve to be compensated.
