3 Phone Calls to Make After an Auto Accident

by Staff Blogger | May 2nd, 2018

When it comes to protecting your health and your rights after an auto accident, there’s no greater tool than your phone.

Making three phone calls as soon as possible can give you the best chances of avoiding legal complications, getting treated for any injuries you suffered, protecting your right to pursue compensation, and protecting yourself as a victim.

Those three phone calls are:

  1. 911 — The first number to dial after an auto accident is 911. Calling 911 dispatches a police officer and emergency responders. That means your accident will be properly reported and you’ll be able to receive immediate medical attention.
  2. Your insurance provider — Auto insurers require prompt notice of all accidents—often within a matter of days after they occur. Don’t wait to report your accident. When talking to the insurance adjuster, stick to the facts and keep the conversation brief.
  3. A Nashville auto accident lawyer — Countless innocent car accident victims accept lowball settlements every day—if they’re even offered settlements at all. Don’t proceed without having an experienced legal team on your side that knows how to protect your rights.
