The police will produce a police report, which will include important information such as the at-fault party's name, address, insurance information, and most importantly, a narrative detailing how, where, and why the accident occurred. Furthermore, the at-fault party may make a statement to the police officer admitting that the accident was their fault, which will be used as evidence of liability.
Step 2: Immediately Seek Medical Attention
Immediately after being involved in an automobile accident, you should be examined by a physician. Again, as stated above, even though there may not be initial signs of broken bones, lacerations, abrasions or bruising, it does not mean that you are injury free. Moreover, just because an accident resulted from a seemingly low impact collision, it also does not mean that you are not seriously injured. Therefore, you should always seek immediate medical attention after being involved in an automobile accident.
Step 3: Do Not Speak to the Insurance Company
Ultimately, insurance companies are businesses and their main objective is to pay out as little as possible; therefore, it is the insurance adjuster's job to settle claims for as little as possible and as quickly as possible. Many times insurance adjusters will contact you very soon after an automobile accident and will request that you provide them with a recorded statement. Then, insurance adjusters will present what may seem like a good settlement offer. However, again, it is important to keep in mind that your future and the futures of your loved ones are not the insurance adjuster's main concern. It is important to understand, as discussed above, that soon after an automobile accident the severity of your injuries may not have materialized.
