What to Do if Your in a Car Accident

In the seconds following a wreck you are often shocked and confused. Yet there are key steps you must take to protect yourself. Taking photographs of the vehicles and jotting down the time and weather conditions are a couple, simple, but important steps. A big step is refraining from signing your rights away. These are just a few simple things you can to do that will pay dividends down the road. If you wait too long to take action, sometimes important evidence is lost. For these reasons, we highly recommend you take steps as soon after the wreck as possible.
