What to do after a Car Crash in Maine

The aftermath of a car accident can be hectic and stressful. Follow these practical steps to help reduce stress and anxiety and improve recovery after an auto collision in Kyle:

  • If possible, stay at the scene

    Safety is the number one priority and you should only stay where you are when it is safe to do so.

  • Immediately contact law enforcement and emergency personnel

    The presence of authorities on the scene ensure a proper investigation of the accident and ensure everyone’s safety.

  • Exchange information

    Provide your insurance and contact information to any other party involved, and collect the insurance and contact information of the involved parties. Contact your insurance company immediately with an alert of the accident.

  • Take note of your surroundings and document the scene

    Making notes of the accident while the experience is fresh in your mind may help with documentation down the road. Talk to witnesses and record what they say. Taking photographs of the scene may serve as valuable evidence later on.

  • Speak with an attorney before talking to anyone else

    You should not admit fault or make promises to anyone without consulting an attorney first. At Mann Law, we can provide you with valuable information for handling these conversations without compromising your car crash claim.

  • Report all of your injuries, pains, and concerns to your medical professionals

    Many people underestimate and minimize their concerns when talking to their doctors. While something may not seem important initially, it is still important to report any pain or discomfort to ensure proper treatment is administered in a timely manner. While receiving treatment for your various injuries, follow the advice of medical professionals.

  • Document out-of-pocket expenses and lost wages

    There may be some expenses that are not covered by insurance, and it’s important to keep those receipts. It’s equally important to keep track of your lost time and wages while out of work due to your injuries. For an easy template to keep track of these items, click here.
