Ever notice how many more car accidents are happening during the summer road construction season? We are creatures of habit: buy the same toothpaste, order the same lunch, drive the same route to and from work or the grocery store. When our normal routes are disrupted due to construction, odd (and sometimes bad) things happen.
If you are in a car accident there are several things to remember. First, always make sure the accident is reported to the police. Insurance companies rely on accident reports when assessing claims. Make sure you think about any injuries you might have and let the investigating officer know about them. Most of us are too shaken up (or maybe too “tough guy”) to think about this at an accident scene. Also, get photos of the vehicles, drivers and license plates. Be sure to go to the hospital if you think you might be seriously injured! Always best to let a doctor check things out and your car insurance will always pay for it.
Finally, be sure to give one of the insurance/injury attorneys a call a Cunningham Dalman. We can answer your questions and put your mind at rest.
