6 Steps  to Take after a Car Accident


Wait for Help

No matter what the circumstances, do not leave the scene of the car accident. If safe to do so, move the vehicles involved out of traffic and onto the side of the road.

Call 9-1-1

After a car wreck, seek immediate medical care for all injured parties. Early treatment can sometimes prevent the most serious complications, including spinal cord injuries, brain trauma, and loss of a limb.

Exchange Details

Collect the driver's license, insurance, and contact information of the other driver. Do not accept an on-site settlement offer or insurance settlement before speaking to a lawyer.

Collect Photos & Evidence

Take pictures of property damage, physical injuries, and the car accident site. If there were any bystanders who witnessed the accident, collect their contact information as well.

Don't Apologize

Even if you think the auto accident was your fault, do not apologize. A simple "sorry" could be seen as an admission of fault and compromise the amount of compensation you are entitled to.

Talk to a Car Accident Lawyer

It is also best to speak to an attorney as soon as possible. Our team can begin to gather important evidence at your accident scene, including taking photographs and witness statements.

Settlement vs. Court Mr. Cardon will pursue either route in order to help you collect

1. Mr. Cardon will meet with the negligent party's insurance company and legal representative.

2. Both sides will negotiate to arrive at a settlement amount that covers your losses.

3. If Mr. Cardon believes that this amount truly compensates for the physical and emotional injuries you have suffered, as well as your property damages and attorney fees, the offer will be accepted. If it does not, he is not afraid to take your case to court.

1. Mr. Cordon will file a lawsuit on your behalf.

3. Based on these presentations, the jury will determine if - and to what extent - you should be compensated.
