PHOENIX, AZ, August 29, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Indeed, the aftermath of an accident can be terrifying, confusing, and troublesome all at the same time. Here are a few principles to keep in mind when traversing the tumultuous wake of an accident.
First off, after an accident, make sure that everyone in your vehicle is safe. It is always wise to call the authorities.
Next, you want to exchange information with the other driver if you can. If for some reason the driver seems hostile, then wait till the police arrive and have them sort out the ordeal. Ideally, you want to exchange phone numbers, addresses, driver's license numbers, license plate numbers, and basic insurance information. If there were passengers or other witnesses, then try to secure their contact information as well.
"It is also highly advisable to photograph the scene of the accident. Every piece of evidence will come in handy later down the road," said David Hastings, founding attorney at Hastings and Hastings.
Having an attorney you trust is helpful. They can help protect you through the process, and ensure you secure the compensation you deserve. Hastings and Hastings has saved their clients over eleven million dollars in the past seven years. They have over eleven locations valley wide, and a multicultural culture that can accommodate Spanish and English speakers alike. Some of their notable settlements include a $600,000 tire blowout settlement, a $200,000 accident settlement against a drunk driver, and a $190,000 go cart accident.
