Questions To Ask Yourself After A Car Accident

The car accident attorneys at Walter Clark Legal Group understand that the first moments after an auto accident can be disorienting and confusing. After all, no one anticipates that they will be in a car accident, and the shock of confronting this situation can be challenging. That being said, the first moments after the accident are especially critical if you were not at fault. Understanding what you should do to protect yourself should always be your first priority after an accident. With that in mind, here are three of the first questions you should ask yourself after a vehicle accident.

Q1: Am I Injured, Or Are Any Of My Passengers Injured?

Healthy and safety should always be your top priority. With that in mind, you should make sure that you check yourself and your passengers for signs of physical injury immediately after the accident. Your adrenaline may be pumping, but this is the time to make sure that no life-threatening injuries have occurred. If you see any injuries, make sure you seek the appropriate medical attention right away.

Q2: Is My Vehicle Still In Danger?

After an accident, you may be tempted to get out of your vehicle and survey the damage. If you were hit on a busy highway, this could be incredibly dangerous! Always survey your surroundings before leaving your car following an auto accident. Make sure that you aren’t placing yourself at additional risk by opening your car door. If you are in immediate danger due to your location and driving to the side of the road is an option, this could be an excellent way to stay safe.

Q3: Can The Police Help Me?

If you have been in a car or truck accident that wasn’t your fault, the police can help reinforce your side of the story by writing a police report. Depending upon available resources and the severity of your accident,  the police may or may not be able to assist you. It is definitely worth taking the time to call and report your accident however in order to discover more about your options.
