Having been involved in a car accident can make you feel helpless at some point. But there are things you can do to help yourself and your case.

Nowadays, everybody has a phone capable of taking photos and videos that can be used as evidence later on that can be reviewed by the court and your insurance company. Make sure to include showing the damage to your car, any skid marks on the road, and the whole accident scene. You may also include your own or your passenger’s injuries if any. If your car is equipped with a dashboard camera that may have recorded a video of the accident, it is best to make copies of it for the police, insurance companies, and, if needed, the court.

It also best if you document everything, including expenses, medical findings immediately after the accident, or any documents you may have signed. Remember to call your lawyer immediately when you get in an accident and do not sign anything without his or her approval. Your lawyer will look after your best interest and will give you legal advice.

Behave online. Car insurance companies may be checking your social media pages or that of the members of your family. Today, even a random post you make on social media can be used against you by car insurance companies or the driver at-fault’s lawyer.

Lastly, do not withhold information about the accident or your injuries from your lawyer, and always be honest when asked about what actually happened. Honesty and information given in a timely manner will always help you and your case.
