There is support available after a car accident

As all too many people in Kentucky have learned, being involved in a car accident can be an extremely traumatic experience. Aside from the serious injuries that you and your loved ones may have suffered during the incident, you are also faced with the shock of the event itself and worries about what will happen next. It is a lot to take in and it can be hard to know where to turn, but your actions immediately following the accident can be very important.

The first thing to do is to summon medical assistance for anyone who might be hurt, including yourself. The incident will also need to be reported to police, so be sure not to leave the scene until you know that officers have logged the event. It is also helpful to collect as much information as possible from the scene in case you need to make a claim on your insurance or that of another driver.

This can include taking photographs of the scene, making a note of weather conditions and other details and collecting contact details from witnesses and any other drivers involved. All of this information can help you to build a case, which can be extremely useful if you decide to make a claim against the person responsible for the crash.

Our page on car accidents has more detailed information about the steps you can take following a crash, but you may also benefit from the guidance of an attorney. He or she can examine the details of the incident and might be able to help you if you choose to take legal action.
