What to do after a car accident in Fort Wayne
As dazed and confused as you may be after a car crash, it’s important to keep your wits about you. The choices you make will affect your legal rights. Here are the steps you need to follow:
- Call the police immediately and remain at the scene until they arrive (unless you have to leave to get emergency medical attention). The police report prepared by the Fort Wayne Police or other law enforcement agency will be a key piece of evidence in your claim.
- Exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver. This is required by Indiana law. Keep your comments at the scene brief, though, and stick to the facts of what happened. Don’t apologize or say anything admitting fault.
- Start gathering evidence. Take pictures of the scene, any property damage, and any visible injuries. Get names and contact information from witnesses. Check to see if there are any surveillance cameras with a view of the scene – remember, video evidence is often overwritten within days, so you need to act promptly to preserve it.
- Get medical attention right away, even if you feel fine. Go to the emergency room at one of Fort Wayne’s hospitals, an urgent care center, or your primary care provider. Tell the doctor about all your symptoms and don’t leave anything out. This not only protects your health but also creates a record of your injuries.
Then, contact Glaser & Ebbs as soon as possible, before you talk to the insurance company. The sooner you get a lawyer on your side, the more efficiently we’ll be able to investigate the accident and protect your rights while you focus on getting better.
We fight for full value – and accountability – for Fort Wayne car accidents
The cost of a car accident can be high, and the consequences ripple throughout your life. It’s not just the immediate medical treatment; it’s the surgeries and follow-up care that may be years away. Your family and your career are affected. Your future is in doubt. That’s a problem for the insurance company, because the higher your costs, the more money they have to pay. They will do everything in their power to downplay or deny your claim.
We know how to counter their tactics and pursue full compensation for all your losses. That starts with a thorough investigation of the accident to find the other driver at fault. We hire expert witnesses and pore over documents to calculate the full amount of compensation you deserve. We know the courts in Allen County, and we know how to build a case that a Fort Wayne jury can’t ignore. People here won’t be fooled by smoke and mirrors – they want to see the evidence, so we give it to them.
When the insurance company sees we’re ready to take them to court, they’re usually ready to make a fair offer. If they won’t pay up, we’ll take them to trial. We work this way because we’re passionate about helping people, and because we love our city. Texting drivers, aggressive drivers, drunk drivers, and other dangerous people make our entire community more dangerous. When we hold them accountable, we help to make our roads safer and protect others from being harmed.
