Rockville Car Accident Attorneys

Car Accident Lawyers in Rockville

Did you know that the actions you take immediately following a Rockville car accident might have a significant impact on your ability to receive compensation for the crash? It is important to understand your rights and to be prepared in case you are ever involved in a serious accident. If you have been injured in a Rockville car accident and you would like to discuss your legal options, please contact an experienced Rockville car accident lawyer for more information.

What To Do Immediately after a Rockville Car Crash

It is natural for you to be in a state of shock as soon as the crash occurs. Check on yourself and the other occupants in your vehicle to see if anyone has been injured. You should then make sure no one else on the scene is injured. Under Maryland Statute 20-102, it is illegal to leave the scene of an accident. Motorists are required to stop, wait until authorities arrive and obtain assistance for those injured.

Exchanging Information

After you have determined if anyone has been hurt and have called for medical assistance if necessary, you will need to exchange information with the other parties involved. You should take down a number of pieces of information including:

  • The name and contact information for the other driver or drivers involved.
  • The license plate number of all vehicles involved.
  • The contact information for any witnesses to the crash.
  • The insurance company, policy number, driver’s license information, insurance agent name (if applicable) and phone number on their insurance policy.

Taking Notes

Take a moment to write down everything you see on the scene. Write down the time of day, what you were doing at the time of the crash, how the accident happened, how fast you were driving and any other details you can think of at the time.

Take Photos

It is a great idea to keep a disposable camera in your glove compartment. Having a phone that can take photos can work as well but the quality and detail on a camera photo is rarely as good as actual film. You should take photos of:

  • The damage to the vehicles.
  • Where the accident took place
  • The position of the vehicles
  • Your injuries.

Speak to the Police

The police report of the crash may be a useful tool if you end up filing a claim. Make sure your side of the story gets put into the police report. If the police are not able to make it to the crash site, you should file a report at the station within 24 hours.

Seek Medical and Legal Assistance

If you have been injured in a Rockville car accident you should immediately seek medical attention. This could increase your chances for a complete recovery and document your injuries. To increase your chances of receiving compensation for your hospital bills you may also wish to speak to a skilled Rockville car accident attorney who will carefully analyze all facets of the accident and ensure that your rights are protected.
