WHAT TO DO IF INVOLVED IN AN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT
In the event of an automobile accident you should:
1. Stop immediately.
2. Check for injuries and render reasonable assistance, where practical.
3. Call the police and emergency personnel.
4. Exchange name, address, phone, registration and insurance information.
Once the Police have been called, you will have to deal with the Police Officer. In the event of a severe accident, you may have to deal with Fire Department Personnel and Emergency Ambulance personnel.
AT THE SCENE OF THE ACCIDENT
At the scene of the accident, get the names of witnesses to the accident. You should present the facts regarding the accident to the police officer who arrives at the scene of the accident. Always give the Police officer and medical providers a complete description of all symptoms that you feel.
a Medical attention
If an automobile injury threatens your life or limbs, seek medical attention at the nearest emergency room. Remember, in Colorado, emergency services must be provided to all injury victims regardless of immigration status and without proof of citizenship. Non emergency care can be obtained at private hospitals.
DEALING WITH INSURANCE COMPANIES
It is always best to have an attorney assist you in dealing with insurance companies. Report your accident to your insurance company immediately. Failure to notify your insurance company within 30 days can result in a complete denial of your claim. An attorney can assist in dealing with your own insurance carrier to settle your automobile damages and medical bill payments.
