Car Accident Tips to Help Prevent Further Injury and Protect Your Legal Rights

Nobody wants to be in a car accident, especially one that results in injury. Unfortunately, even the most careful motorists cannot completely eliminate the risk of an accident. If you are involved in an accident in Maryland, keep these tips in mind to help protect yourself, your family, and your legal rights.

Move to a safe place. If possible, pull off the road or as far to the side as possible, and use your vehicle’s hazard lights, road flares, or emergency signs to warn other motorists of an accident. Do not, however, move anyone who has been seriously injured. Instead, call 911 or your local emergency number.

Jot down everything you remember about the accident. As soon as possible, write down whatever details you can recall regarding the Maryland car accident. What color were the traffic lights? Where are the stop signs? How did the cars collide, and where? If possible, take photos of the accident scene and get the contact information of the other driver and any witnesses. Take care not to place yourself in more danger to get this information.

Don’t admit fault or deny injury. The shock of an accident may make you want to insist the accident was your fault or that you weren’t hurt. However, neither one of these may be true. Instead of admitting or denying that you were responsible or were injured, stick to gathering facts and speak to an experienced Maryland accident attorney if you have questions about your rights or responsibilities after an accident.

The experienced Maryland car accident lawyers at Alpert Schreyer can help you figure out your legal rights and options after an accident. To learn more or to schedule a free case evaluation, call 301-932-9997 today.
