Think of the aftermath of an Inglewood car accident as a minefield.  One wrong move and you can cause a lot of damage.  The same is true regarding personal injury claims.  Making one mistake could hurt your chances of recovering compensation.

You can learn what actions need to be avoided after an Inglewood auto accident by ordering a FREE copy of the book, 7 BIGGEST MISTAKES That Can Ruin Your California Injury Case.  The information contained in this guide will shock you!

Below is a list of what you should do, as these actions will help your case.

  1. Gather as much information as you can.  Write down the details you can remember about the accident.  Think about what led up to the crash and what you were doing at the time the collision occurred.  If you took pictures of the accident scene with the camera on your phone, be sure to save the images. They might come in handy later.
  2. Create an accident folder.  If you were injured in the Inglewood crash, you are going to start accumulating medical bills, fast.  Keep copies of these bills and any information the doctor gives you in a folder.  Also, save any other paperwork relating to the accident, such as the police report and pictures.
  3. Go to the doctor.  Now is not the time to tough it out. If you were injured, you need to seek medical help.  Waiting too long to see a doctor can seriously hurt your accident case, not to mention your health.  Insurance companies and juries are skeptical when accident victims delay medical treatment.  On the same note, be sure to follow up on any doctor visits and physical therapy sessions associated with your injuries.
  4. Contact an Inglewood personal injury attorney. A lawyer will be able to ensure your rights are protected and that you are fairly compensated for your injuries. Do you really want to face the insurance company and its lawyers alone?
