Next Steps

  • Contact Police - Contact the police immediately if anyone involved in the car accident has been seriously injured.
  • Identify Witnesses – Write down the names of anyone involved including motorist, witnesses, and health care professionals. If applicable, obtain a police report.
  • Seek Medical Attention – See your family physician or, if the injury is more serious, go to the emergency ward of the nearest hospital.
  • Notify Your Insurance Provider – Notify your insurance company within seven days of the accident.  Keep details to a minimum. Remember, because they are looking out for their best interest, anything you say may be used against you.
  • Notify Your Employer or School – Let your employer or school know you may be absent due to the accident.
  • Keep Records – Keep track of all your expenses and receipts, phone calls, emails and notes from healthcare providers. Do this for both you and your family members. They may also be eligible for compensation.
  • Speak to a Lawyer – Before making a claim with your insurance company, speak with a lawyer.
  • Manage Deadlines – Some claims need to be made within a specific time period. It’s imperative you speak to a lawyer sooner, rather than later.

Related Information

My name is Carol R. On February 9th, 2005 I was in very a severe car accident. I was in the hospital almost four months. I ended up with severe brain damage and a lot of broken bones. Once home, we hired Shekter/Dychtenberg to represent me in our law suit. In June of 2012 they had made an offer which Alden didn’t feel was enough. I was willing to accept it, but thank god Alden talked me out of it. In December of 2012 they made and offer for the full amount. I am just so very thankful that I listen to Alden and received everything that was coming to me.
