Steps To Take After A Minnesota Car Accident
If you follow a few certain steps after a car crash, you can greatly increase your likelihood of recovering a high settlement or award. Try to remember these steps:
- Get medical attention immediately.
- Call the police and have them write a report.
- Get the name and contact information of the other driver and any witnesses.
- Take photos of the accident site and your injuries.
- Do not speak with any insurance professionals.
A claims adjuster will likely reach out to you to get a statement. Do not talk to them until you have counsel. Insurance providers often try to get you to admit fault so they can minimize your payment.
Common Causes Of Minnesota Car Accidents
A variety of factors can contribute to a devastating car wreck. Many crashes involve more than one contributing source. Some of the most common include:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Disobeying traffic laws
- Poorly maintained roads
We can connect you to a car accident lawyer who has experience with accident reconstruction and other critical skills to build your claim.
