If you have been involved in a car accident in Brooklyn, there are some steps to take that can help your case go smoother throughout. First and foremost, ensure your own well-being. In the case of a serious accident, you need to get examined by a doctor immediately, even if you do not feel that you are hurt. Many times, soft tissue damage can occur without external symptoms.
While you are at the scene, if you are able:
Record as many details about the accident as possible; if you are able, get contact information of any witnesses to the incident.
Take pictures of the damage to vehicles and the surrounding area.
Exchange information with any other drivers involved in the accident. You need to get contact information from the driver, insurance information, and information on the owner of the vehicle if it is not the driver.
After you have left the scene:
Keep a written record of any conversation with insurance adjusters and agents. Be sure to include the name of with whom you spoke, and if possible, the names of supervisors.
Save all receipts involved with the accident. These may include medical bills, rental car expenses, or anything else you think might be related.
