Here’s everything you should know about this resource and what else our firm can offer.
Why a Checklist? (How Car Accidents Impact Our Memory)
Right after an accident happens, you need your memory to work for you.
But the stress and anxiety can lead to difficulty concentrating and processing information. Sometimes the stress can interfere with the formation and recall of memories in strange ways.
We’ve worked with clients who remember some details and not others. For example, sometimes a client can remember very specific details about what a person at the scene was wearing. However, she doesn’t remember exactly how the accident happened.
In that situation, it can be nearly impossible to remember all the details of what you need to gather and do after an accident.
This is a very common problem, but it can have drastic consequences.
What Can Happen If You Don’t Get Certain Information
If you don’t remember to get enough information at the scene of a car accident, it can lead to several potential problems:
First and foremost, it may make it more difficult to file an insurance claim.
For example, if you don’t exchange the right contact and insurance information with the other driver, you may have to pay out of pocket for any medical treatment or car repairs that are needed.
In addition, failing to collect sufficient information at the scene of the accident may also make it more difficult to receive appropriate medical care. After all, doctors need to know what happened to you in order to give you the best treatment.
But there’s another big consequence to not getting enough information: it can make it harder to pursue legal action against the responsible party. If the car accident wasn’t your fault, how do you prove it? Insurance companies will want some sort of evidence.
So as you can probably tell, it’s critically important to collect as much information as possible at the scene of a car accident to protect your legal rights and ensure that you receive the care and compensation you need.
Our Car Accident Checklist Sets You Up for Success
To help you remember everything when it matters most, we’ve created a car accident checklist to store in your glove compartment in case you’re ever in an accident.
At a time when your memory can easily fail you, this checklist will help you prepare all the evidence you need, including:
- What information to get from the other driver
- How to document photos and other proof of who was at fault
- What to say (and not say) at the scene
- and more
This free resource can protect you from forgetting important information or doing something to hurt your case in the future. What’s more, its compact design makes it perfect for your glovebox.
