Types of Car Accidents

There are numerous ways in which an individual can be in an accident caused by negligence.

Common types of accidents our firm can represent include:

  • Head-on collisions
  • Rear-end collisions

What to Do Following an Accident

Being involved in an accident can be scary. Many people don’t take the steps they need to protect themselves and their finances following an accident, whether it is because they are caught up in the stress of the moment and don’t remember to or because they simply are not informed about what to do. Our Birmingham car wreck lawyers have compiled a list of steps to take after an accident to ensure that you receive the restitution and coverage you need.

After an accident, you should:

  • Collect the names and contact information of all individuals involved, including passengers and witnesses to the accident. Also collect the plate numbers, insurance information, and registration of all vehicles involved in the wreck.
  • Get the police involved. Insurance companies are strongly influenced by the information in a police report. Later, be sure to obtain a copy of that police report for your own records.
  • Take photos of the accident, including pictures of the vehicles, the damages, where the accident took place, and nearby streets signs or other details connected to the crash.
  • Still go to the hospital, even if you feel like you do not need an ambulance. Give detailed descriptions of the accident and any pains or discomfort you might be feeling. Many injuries aren’t apparent until sometime after an accident and it is better to be safe than sorry.
  • Avoid apologizing or providing details that could hurt your case. Even if you are not responsible for the accident, apologizing to the other driver could indicate some blame.
