"What should I do if I'm a victim in a car accident in Alabama?"

If you have been in a car accident in Alabama caused by another driver, we strongly urge you to take the following steps:

  • Seek medical attention - Don't try to diagnose yourself. You could have life-threatening injury that is not immediately apparent. Make sure you protect your health. Have an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) or doctor examine you after your car accident.
  • Call the police - It's very important to have a police officer respond to your car accident to help sort things out. Without an official accident report from the police, you might have a hard time obtaining compensation for your accident.
  • Take photographs - Photos of your accident and your injuries can be used as evidence for your accident. Don't give insurance companies a reason to reject your claim.
  • Gather evidence - Write down anything that might seem important about your accident. Every detail counts, including:
    • Time and location of accident
    • Weather conditions
    • Traffic conditions
  • Driver's information - Make sure you obtain the following information from the other driver:
    • Full name
    • Address
    • Phone number
    • License plate number
    • Driver's licenses number
    • Insurance information
  • Interview witnesses - If others saw your accident, talk to them. Get their full names, addresses and phone numbers. Their testimony could be critical in obtaining compensation for your Alabama car accident.
  • Notify your insurance company - Tell your insurance company you have been in a car accident caused by another driver.
