When a car accident occurs, before you call an auto crash attorney, you must call 911. When you speak with 911, you need to request that law enforcement and emergency medical services respond to the scene. If you’re physically able to, it is highly suggested that you take photos and obtain witness statements. You will also need to gather the information of the other driver. As your legal team, we will then obtain a full traffic crash report typically within seven to ten days after the accident.
