Have you been injured in a Tucson Car Accident?

Injured in a Tucson Car Accident?

A Tucson car accident will occur without warning every day.  Accidents cannot be predicted, so the only thing you can do is to be prepared for such situations in advance.  God forbid you might never have to be in an accident, but it is better that you know what to do in the face of adversity.

What to do after a Tucson car accident

Remember these pointers after a car accident:
  • If your injuries are not serious and it is safe to do so, try and move your vehicle to the side of the road so that it is not damaged further. In case you can’t move your car, turn on your hazard lights so that other drivers are warned that your vehicle is going to be stationed there for a while.
  • Check to see if others have been injured - passengers, pedestrians, and other drivers. Even anyone has been noticeably hurt, it is better to get medical attention to them as soon as possible. Sometimes internal injuries are not visible and manifest later on, which is why victims (including you) should be checked out by a professional.
  • Shut off the ignition, shift into park mode or in the case of a manual, set the handbrake. Find out if you can get out safely by opening the door, and help others to climb out as well. Please don’t delay in requesting medical assistance for yourself, your family, or others injured.
  • The more information you gather about the accident, the more it can help you. Jot down the make and model and license plate numbers of all vehicles involved, names of drivers and passengers, location of accident, contact details of eyewitnesses, insurance information, and the names and contact information of responding police officers, so you can follow up.
  • It will be extremely beneficial if you can provide photos of the scene while filing insurance claims, so if you own a smartphone with a camera, snap some pictures. A few apps are available that allow you to directly upload photos from a scene when you file a claim.

Contacting the Tucson Police Department

Call the police because an official car accident report will be of great assistance when you file insurance claims. Cooperate with the police and let them do their job without undue interference.  Unfortunately, the police may not respond after a Tucson Car Accident if the caller does not state that the parties are not injured.  You may still want to call the police though because the call gets recorded and logged (and is proof that the accident occurred).Contacting an Arizona Accident LawyerDon’t delay when it comes to contacting an auto accident lawyer. There is a certain window of time within which you can file a lawsuit, so if that time frame passes, your claim will no longer be considered eligible for processing.  Moreover, it takes a while for accident-related claims to be processed due to the legalities and other formalities involved, so it is best to submit all papers as fast you can.
