What to Do After a Car Accident

Serving Central and South Virginia

You may have questions about protecting your legal rights after your auto accident. At Skolrood Law Firm, our Roanoke car accident lawyers offer these tips to help you handle the events following your crash.

  1. Call the police to investigate the crash.
    A police report can preserve valuable evidence for your claim.

  2. Take photographs and get witness information at the scene.
    Photographs and the identification of witnesses can help prove who was at fault for the accident.

  3. Notify your insurance company about the accident.
    It is important to notify your insurance company about your accident, but don’t sign any documents or admit fault to an insurance adjuster.

  4. Seek medical attention as soon as possible.
    Signs of your injuries may not appear immediately. Sometimes the days following the collision are the most painful. A simple medical examination can help protect your health and start you back on the road to recovery.

  5. Contact an experienced attorney.
