What to Do After a Motor Vehicle Accident in Raleigh/ Durham, North Carolina

Your life can be changed forever in a few short seconds if you are involved in a motor vehicle accident. What happens immediately following your accident may help you recover from your accident more quickly and hold those responsible legally liable.

In the event you are involved in a motor vehicle accident some advice to try to remember is to first and foremost seek medical attention even if you do not think you have been injured. Some injury’s symptoms, such as whiplash injuries, take hours or days to surface and can leave you with a life-long disability if left unattended for an extended period of time.

Notify the police so there is an official police report of your accident which may be useful to you in the future in case of a lawsuit. Make sure you obtain vehicle and contact information from all individuals involved in the accident and try to obtain any witness information as well.

It would be very helpful if you could take pictures of the accident that can provide actual photographic evidence of the accident and prevailing conditions of the road and weather at the time that may prove to be of assistance to an accident reconstruction expert.
