What to do after an Automobile Accident in Tuskegee, Alabama

Immediately after an automobile accident you must make quick and important decisions that can affect your future health and well-being and your financial future as well.

After an automobile accident it is important to pull off the side of the road to a safer location if you can, but do not leave the scene of the accident as that is a crime in most states. Check all people involved for injuries and call for medical assistance if needed. Some injuries are not obvious at first, such as a whiplash injury or a brain injury, so it is better to call 911 if you have the slightest suspicion someone is injured.

If you are able, exchange information with the other driver, such as driver’s name, address, telephone numbers, license plate number, driver’s license number and all automobile insurance information. If there were witnesses to the accident try to get their information as well.

Do not admit fault and do not sign anything without your attorney’s advice. Cooperate with the police at the scene of the accident, but avoid admitting responsibility. The experienced automobile accident attorneys at The Cochran Firm have decades of experience assisting our clients through the complex legal issues involved when someone is injured or killed in an automobile accident.
