The first thing to do is to make sure that you and your passengers are safe after the collision. If you are able to safely do so, call for an ambulance if anyone at the scene was injured. If you are severely injured, sit tight and do not move while you wait for safety. It is important to collect information from the other driver. If you are able to do so, take pictures of the vehicles. Try to include pictures that show the position of the vehicles on the road and any hazardous conditions that might have caused the accident.
Many times, Travelers Insurance claims ask drivers to submit a verbal statement as to what happened during the accident. While it is important that your claim moves forward quickly, it is wise to speak with a skilled Charlotte car accident attorney before submitting a statement. If you are still in shock after the car accident, you might accidentally admit fault for the accident, or in some other way jeopardize the strength of your claim. Travelers Insurance could then argue that you caused the accident and use that determination to deny your settlement claim.
Traveler’s Insurance agents may ask you to sign an authorization form allowing one of their claims adjusters to look into your medical and employment records. It is wise to speak with a skilled car accident attorney before signing such a release. At Arnold & Smith, PLLC we have advised many clients as to what information to disclose to Travelers Insurance and what information to hold back.
