Steps to Take After a Bucks County Auto Accident

New Jersey and Pennsylvania car crashes seem to be more common than ever. In fact, it is very rare to go through a day without seeing or hearing about an auto accident in your area. The chances are very likely that you will be involved in a car crash at one point in your life, if you haven’t already. If you happen to be involved in a Pennsylvania or New Jersey auto accident, you need to be sure to:

  • Call the police – Be sure to call the police, even if the accident seems minor. The police report will be a vital piece of information in your case.
  • Take pictures – Even if you only have a camera phone, any photo that you can take of the scene and the damage to the vehicles may prove to be helpful.
  • Gather witness information – Take down information such as name, telephone number and email address from any and all willing witnesses.
  • Go to the doctor – If you feel injured, do not be afraid to go to the doctor or hospital. Your health should be your number one priority. Even if you do not feel hurt, it may be in your best interest to go to a doctor and get checked out, as symptoms may not appear for days, or even weeks, after the injury occurs.
  • Do not be pressured by the insurance adjusters – Insurance adjusters are trained to settle your case for the lowest amount possible, even if that means leaving you with mounds of medical bills and a lifetime of pain and suffering. Whatever you do, do not give any recorded statements or sign anything before consulting with a Philadelphia accident attorney.
