What Should I Do After A New Mexico Car Accident?
One of the keys to pursuing a successful Albuquerque Personal Injury case is documentation. That is why it is so important that you go through the proper channels and get the property documentation from the beginning of your accident to the end of your medical treatment. Anyone involved in a car accident in New Mexico should follow these steps to ensure they receive the care they need while putting themselves in the best possible position for future compensation.
Call the Police. Make sure police and emergency services are called so that a police report can be filed and your injuries can be assessed immediately after the accident. This report can have a lot of useful information in your claim. The police can also cite the driver at fault in the accident which can also help prove the other party’s responsibility.
Take Photos. As soon as you can, take pictures of the accident or as someone to do it for you. Your cell phone camera will work fine. Make sure you photograph the accident from as many angles and in much detail as you can. Taking note of surrounding landmarks and the damage to both vehicles.
Find witnesses. Seek out anyone who saw the accident and get their contact information. If possible, ask them to email you a statement of what they witnessed. If you had passengers in your car, ask them to provide you a statement as well.
Seek medical attention. As soon as you’ve been involved in an accident make sure you either call an ambulance or go to the emergency room. You may not feel pain initially because of your body’s adrenaline response, but it’s essential for your physical and financial recovery that you receive a full medical assessment and initial treatment.
