What To Do After a Car Accident

At Swor & Gatto, P.A., our personal injury attorneys have been winning damages and compensation for people injured in car accidents in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area since 1981. We have the knowledge and experience to build strong cases and a proven track record of successful results.

From a legal perspective, it is important to take the following actions, if possible, following a car accident caused by a negligent driver:

  • At the scene of the accident, pull over and stop at a safe place and contact the police to make sure the accident is documented.
  • If you suspect the negligent driver of drinking and driving, tell the police officer.
  • Obtain names and contact information from any witnesses who may be present.
  • See a medical professional immediately, regardless of how minor your injury may seem. There can be significant repercussions if you wait too long to see a doctor — you may not be able to establish a personal injury case.
  • Contact an experienced, reputable personal injury lawyer for further guidance regarding what to do after a car accident injury.
  • Do not talk to any insurance company agents, including your own, until you have attorney representation.
