What to do if Involved in a Car Accident

Car accidents occur all too frequently in New Hampshire. Car collisions amount to millions of dollars and severe pain and suffering for the victims. If you have been involved in a car accident due to the negligence of another person you deserve to hold them responsible. In order to do so there are several steps that need to be taken after the accident, including:

  • Calling law enforcement and reporting your side of the accident in the police report
  • Obtaining medical attention
  • Make sure all injuries are documented in a medical record
  • Collect names and contact information of any witnesses who saw the accident
  • Take pictures for evidence; pictures of the vehicles, the scene of the accident and your injuries
  • Obtain your own copies of the police report and the medical records and bills
  • Write down a personal statement of the accident so you do not forget any details
  • Contact a New Hampshire car accident attorney to fight for you
