Next Steps After a Buffalo Car Accident?

Posted: January 14, 2019

You might someday find yourself the victim of a Buffalo car accident. Every situation is unique, but, if you are involved in an accident, here are a few things to consider.

Get Checked Out

Hopefully you were not injured. After an accident, there can be adrenaline running through your body. Therefore, you may not feel many of the minor injuries that you could have endured. Those injuries can, over time, quickly turn into big problems. If you think you were injured, you should seek treatment.

Try to Take Pictures of the Accident Scene

If you can get back to the accident scene the day of your accident and after your medical examination, it may benefit you to go there and take pictures. If a tree covering a stop sign is what caused your accident, you may want to take a photograph of it. In the event you are unable to get back to the accident scene quickly, then send a friend or family member to take pictures for you. Also, if you retain an attorney, that attorney can investigate for you.

Get the Police Report

The Buffalo police can do a nice job of putting together accident reports. You should ask for a copy of the police report.

Find Your Car

If you did not get the chance to have your own roadside assistance company tow your car from the accident site, then chances are that the police took care of that for you.
