What to do if you're in a car wreck

Many times, the difference between winning and losing your personal injury case depends on what happens at the scene of the accident. If you are in a car wreck, follow these steps to help make sure that your case is successful:

  1. Take pictures with your cell phone before the cars are removed from the roadway-use multiple angles and get the other cars license plate number, as well as what areas are damaged and any debris in the roadway.
  2. Call the police and get a report-even if you have to wait a long time for the police, you want to have what happened recorded to protect against people changing their stories.
  3. Get the other driver’s insurance information-this will help to get the claim set up faster in order to get your car repaired more quickly.
  4. Call the Cossé Law Firm immediately. We have intake specialists available 24/7 for your convenience.
