If you have been injured in a car accident, then you are entitled to a car accident settlement to cover the injuries and damages you have sustained as a result of the accident. An auto accident attorney can help you recover a higher settlement. You yourself can also help maximize the settlement by taking the following steps.
Call the Police at the Scene of the Accident
First, it is important to call the police when the accident occurs. If medical attention is needed, they will send the necessary people. The police will be able to gather all of the details from the accident to generate a police report. This report can be used as evidence in your case.
