5 steps to take after a crash in Denver

Crashes are fairly common in Denver, and they can significantly impact the people involved. Whether the injuries are minor or severe, they have to miss time doing the things they planned to deal with hospital visits, filing claims and more.

After an accident, the truth is that you may be too stressed or busy to handle your insurance claim. If you have injuries, you'll likely be focused on your health and recovery. So, what should you do after a crash to make things easier?

1. Find out more about the other driver

The first thing to do is to find out more about the other driver. You should exchange information including the driver's name, contact information, license number and insurance information.

2. Offer assistance if you can

If you or others involved in the crash can help each other with your injuries, you should. Although you may be upset about the crash, it's reasonable to put people's health first. Call 911 as soon as possible to make sure that emergency care is on the way.

3. Report the accident to the police

When you're involved in a crash, it's your responsibility to report it to the police if it results in an injury. If you call 911, the police will attend the scene and make a report, which helps you when you make a claim.

4. Note down what happened

Next, make sure you write down what happened. You might remember everything right now, but memories fade over time. To get the fine details, you should always write down what happened as soon as possible after the collision.

5. Reach out to your attorney

Finally, reach out to your attorney. Your attorney will talk to you about the crash and how it came about. They can reach out to law enforcement to get information about the crash and the investigation that followed.

They will also help by negotiating on your behalf if you are hospitalized. Your attorney will work with the insurance agents to discuss settlement options. If a settlement is offered, your attorney will let you know if it seems fair. If not, your attorney can negotiate further or help you decide if you'd like to go to trial to assert your claim. If you do go to trial, your attorney will represent you and support you while you seek compensation from the other party.
