Car Accident Resources

Car accidents can result in serious injuries (or death), extensive property damage, and often impact the lives of those involved in unforeseen ways. If you are involved in an automobile accident, you likely will have to work with your insurance provider, the other driver's (or drivers') insurer, and possibly a personal injury lawyer. It can be an overwhelming experience, particularly if serious injuries limit your day-to-day activities.

If you are in a car accident, make sure you get immediate medical attention (if necessary) and take detailed notes of the incident. FindLaw's After a Car Accident: First Steps is a good place to start. It's also a good idea to get contact information from any possible witnesses to the accident. You may even want to hire a car accident lawyer, particularly if you have suffered serious injuries.

If you decide to file a personal injury claim, make sure you fully understand which kinds of damages you are entitled to claim.

The following resources address automobile (and motorcycle) safety, including tips on how to work with your insurer. See FindLaw's extensive Car Accidents section for additional articles and resources.

If you have additional questions about a car accident or require legal assistance, find a car accident lawyer in your area.
