What To Do After A Motor Vehicle Accident
1.If in an automobile accident, Call 911.
2.Do not move your vehicle until the police arrive unless it is in harms way.
3.If you are injured, remain in your vehicle until the ambulance arrives. Leave your vehicle only if it is in a dangerous position or area.
4.If you are able, obtain the name, address, and telephone number of the driver of the vehicle that hit you. Also obtain the name, address, and phone number of any witness and the driver's insurance company.
5.If possible, attempt to photograph the accident scene prior to the vehicles being moved. If you cannot photograph the scene as soon as possible photograph the damage to your vehicle or the vehicle you were in.
6.Seek medical attention as soon as you can. Follow the medical advice that your treating physicians provide.
7.Ask for the name of the responding police officer and the police agency he or she works for.
8.If you are injured, or think you might be injured, seek medical attention as soon as possible. An ambulance will be called if you are hurt.
9.Obtain a copy of the police report from the police department that responded to the accident scene. If the police department took pictures and conducted an accident reconstruction, request a copy of the reconstruction report and the pictures.
10.Notify your own insurance company regardless of whether you were at fault. If the accident is in Kentucky, your own automobile insurance company will pay the first $10,000 of your medical bills. Kentucky is a No-fault state which means your insurance company will pay for your medical bills regardless of who is at fault for the accident. Kentucky requires a minimum of $10,000 in medical coverage to be provided for the driver and all passengers in the automobile. This is commonly referred to as PIP coverage.
11.Many insurance companies will send adjusters to the hospital or to your home soon after the accident to get a statement or attempt settling with you for your injuries. Do not give a statement, settle, or sign any document provided by the insurance company without seeking the assistance of an attorney.
