What to do after an auto accident in Marietta, GA
When you get into an auto accident, there are certain steps you must take for your personal safety as well as legal requirements you need to follow:
- Get your vehicle out of traffic if you can, and if you can’t, make it visible to oncoming traffic. If possible, use flares or traffic cones to divert oncoming traffic around your vehicle.
- Call 911 to request the police and an ambulance.
- Provide first aid to any injured parties, including reasonable assistance, as required by law, to parties in the other vehicle.
- Exchange identifying information, as required by law, with the other driver(s).
- Take photos of the accident scene, damage, and injuries.
- Ask police how you can get a copy of the accident report.
- Express any concerns about the other driver (e.g., DUI) to the police.
- Seek medical assistance.
- Contact your insurance agent to report the accident.
Finally, you should call an auto accident attorney immediately. Getting professional assistance at the outset of your claim greatly increases your chances of getting a favorable settlement in a timely manner.
