First Steps After an Auto Accident in Utah

People do not prepare for car accidents. They do everything they can to avoid them. Unfortunately, even the best driver may not be able to avoid an accident caused by another driver's negligence. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, you want to know what to do. That is where we come in.

Get Medical Attention

Getting medical attention as soon as possible is critical for more reasons than one. Obviously, the sooner you get treatment, the sooner you can get on the road to recovery. Additionally, it is important that your condition is properly documented, because this documentation will play an important role in your personal injury case.

Do you not have health insurance? We will not let that stop you from getting the care you need after your auto accident.

Take Pictures and Gather Evidence

If your condition allows it, take photos of the accident scene, the damage to your vehicle and your injuries. If you can also get names of witnesses and other details, that can be helpful. Our lawyers will conduct a thorough investigation, so if your medical condition does not allow you to take these steps, you should simply focus on your recovery.

Address Property Damage

Getting your car fixed and getting a rental to use in the meantime can be surprisingly complex. Let us deal with it. Our lawyers are here to help with this at no additional cost.

Do Not Sign Anything or Give Any Recorded Statements

While the law requires you to notify your insurance company about your accident, do not sign anything or give any recorded statements before consulting with an attorney. Be aware that insurance companies are going to get involved, and the negligent driver's insurance company may try to get you to sign away your rights for a settlement that comes up far short of meeting your needs in the long run. Do not accept it.
