The Stealey Law Auto Accident App provides you with the tools and resources you need if you or someone you know is in an auto accident. Auto accidents are unexpected and stressful. Even the most careful drivers could be involved. Keep our app on your phone to review the necessary steps to take after a car accident.
Create a Report
Start a new accident report in the app to keep track of all the details after an accident has arrived. Exit your vehicle to a safe area, check on others and then call the police. Exchange information with the other driver while you wait for any reporting officers.
Using the Locator
You can identify and verify the exact location of the accident.
Take photos of all damage to the vehicles, not just your own. This will prevent somebody from trying to say damage was part of the accident if it occurred after the fact. Take a picture of the license plate number and the driver’s license.
List those involved in the accident including the other driver, witnesses and reporting officers. Get insurance information, types of cars involved and license plates numbers.
Record all comments made by other parties or witnesses. Even if you think the accident was your fault, do not admit fault. It’s important that you consider hiring an attorney if the accident is serious and major injuries were suffered.
The app has the capability to easily submit your report to our law firm. We will get back to you with free advice on your legal options.
Auto accidents can be overwhelming — working with the insurance company, obtaining a police report, finding somewhere to repair your vehicle — it’s time consuming and frustrating.
Sometimes, it’s best to hire an attorney to make sure you are well-represented and to help you get a good settlement (should you be entitled to one) and to ensure you are treated fairly.
In many cases, you may not be aware of the insurance coverage you have. It’s important that you don’t go into the settlement process alone, as the other driver’s insurance company will try to pay you the absolute minimum amount.
If you think you may have an auto accident case, or feel like something is amiss with the way you are being treated by the insurance company, give us a call. We can help you:
- Establish liability by preserving evidence and interviewing witnesses
- Ensure you receive the proper medical care and stay in touch with you as you recover from your injuries
- Help you understand the law, including statutes of limitations and your right to recover damages
- Collect necessary medical records and document your injuries properly so you receive full compensation
- Ensure that you receive the compensation to which you are rightfully entitled
- Negotiate a settlement that takes into account all future medical and financial needs
