What Should You Do Immediately Following an Accident?

  1. Exchange Information. New York law obligates you to stop and exchange information with other drivers immediately after an accident. This includes providing the other parties involved with your driver’s license, insurance information, and registration. Of course, if you are too injured to move, you should remain still until medical personnel arrive on the scene.
  2. Do not admit to any fault in your interaction with other drivers. Even if you were partly to blame, refrain from apologizing as this may be construed by other parties as accepting blame and thereby voiding your chance at recovering damages.
  3. Call the police or 911 right away if anyone is injured or was killed in the accident. After police arrive on the scene, ask the officer for a copy of the accident report to file with your Nassau County personal injury lawyer.
  4. Take careful note of the accident scene. Photos of your vehicle and those of the other parties involved, the accident scene, and any injuries of yours can be significant help to placing fault with another driver and ensuring you recover fair compensation.
  5. Retain skilled legal counsel in the aftermath of a car accident. Our Nassau County car accident lawyer can keep you informed of your rights and fight to win the compensation you need to cover your losses.

Common Causes of Car Accidents

Personal injury cases revolve around the idea that someone lacked reasonable care, thereby causing your accident and subsequent injuries.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the leading causes of car accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • The use of cell phones or texting
  • Driver fatigue
  • Drunk driving
  • Speeding
  • Aggressive driving
  • Weather and road conditions

Note, with the exception of weather, that all of these factors point to drivers who were negligent. Even on the subject of weather, if a driver does not take reasonable precautions when driving in extreme snow, rain, or wind, they may be found to be the cause of an accident. By far, the majority of incidents which resulted in severe injuries or wrongful deaths were due to driver negligence.
