What To Do If You Are In An Accident

With the ubiquity of smartphones in the world, the danger of being injured by an inattentive or distracted driver is ever present. Many drivers pay more attention to their texts than what's happening around them. Of course, that's just the newest threat. Drunk driving and other types of negligence have been around since the advent of the automobile.

Those who are injured in a car accident or other motor vehicle accident are often left with extensive car repairs, medical bills and lost wages. These victims need an advocate to fight on their behalf and get compensation for injuries. Our lawyers have more than 60 years of experience fighting for the rights of personal injury victims in Little Rock and throughout Arkansas.

Here's What To Do If You're Involved In An Accident

The actions you take immediately following an automobile accident can make a big difference in your legal case. It is wise to:

  • Make sure everyone is OK and call the proper authorities for medical help.
  • Write down everything that happened.
  • Get the names and contact information of any witnesses.
  • Take as many photos as you can of the scene and the damage.

Most importantly, do not sign any papers, agree to anything or admit guilt before speaking with an attorney. At Dodds, Kidd, Ryan & Rowan, we will work diligently to resolve your case. That can include making sure property damage is taken care of, medical care is paid for and negotiations commence with insurance companies to get you the compensation you need.
