WHAT HAPPENS WHEN POLICE ARRIVEOnce an accident has occurred, you should first check yourself (as well as anyone else in the car) for injures. You should make sure your car is turned off and out of harm's way. After you make sure that you and the passengers are safe, police should be contacted immediately. The quicker police arrive to the accident, the more information they can include in their reports. Police are trained to investigate these scenes and gather the information needed to establish who was at fault in the car accident. They will assess the damage of the cars involved, interview any eye witnesses, and assess the location of tire marks. Once the police have concluded their investigation, they will reduce their findings into a detailed crash report. This crash report is a great starting point in evaluating any potential personal injury claim that an injured motorist may have. Calling police immediately also serves other important purposes in establishing your personal injury claim. After an accident, insurance companies will begin to conduct their own investigation. When an injured party has documented that they were the first to call for emergency help, it can only benefit their insurance claim. Further, if the injured party needs additional treatments and care, these reports will provide proof that the crash was the initial cause of their injuries.
