Nobody Is Prepared For an Auto Accident

Nobody Is Prepared For an Auto Accident

Posted By Cobb Pain & Rehab || 14-Oct-2016

We seldom leave the house thinking that something bad will happen to us, but the reality is that unexpected things can happen at any time. If something were to happen, it is important to be prepared in order to know how to act and avoid making the problem worse. In cities with heavy traffic like Atlanta, car accidents happen all the time. Head-on collisions, T-bone collisions, and accidents in parking lots are very common, often causing injury to drivers and passengers.

The most important thing is to remain calm and follow these instructions:

  • Call the police
  • When the police arrive, describe how the accident occurred
  • Exchange information with the other driver, including license information and the name of his or her insurance company
  • Do not forget to stay neutral – avoid making any admissions of guilt
  • Don’t refuse to see a doctor – if you do, the insurance company will assume you aren’t hurt and don’t need compensation
  • Report the accident to your insurance company
  • Don’t give a statement to the other driver’s insurance company before consulting with a lawyer. We can refer you!
  • Seek medical attention even if you don’t immediately feel hurt. In many cases, symptoms may not appear until days or even weeks after an accident

If you have been in an accident, you should always get checked by a specialist to determine the severity of the injury and what treatment may be required. At Cobb Pain & Rehab, we specialize in auto accident injuries.
