What To Do After A Car Accident By Attorney Jorge P. GutierrezSpecial to THELAW.TV WTXL ABC 27 | 0comments If you drive enough, you will end up in a motor vehicle accident at some point in your life. Not because you did anything wrong. But more likely because someone else was not paying attention, was talking or texting on the cell phone, or just being negligent in their driving. Below you will find some helpful tips on how to make the process after the accident as painless as possible. THINGS TO DO You should contact your insurance company as soon as possible after the accident. Make sure you write down the claim number they provide, as this will save you lots of time the next time you need to speak to anyone regarding the accident. Take some time and read your insurance policy and understand it. Bring the policy or at least the insurance card with you to any subsequent doctors appointment, as well as to any visit to any attorney. Immediately after the accident, take extensive notes as to how the accident occurred, who was in the vehicles, the directions of travel, as well as anything that may have caused the accident (i.e., someone ran the light).

Lily was sitting at a table waiting for her afternoon snack when the car crashed into the building, and Nicole Quintus said a teacher called her soon after, screaming but unable to say what happened. “One minute everything was normal and the next there was an explosion and smoke and screams,” she said. The girl’s 7-year-old brother is an aspiring engineer who wants to design a time machine to bring Lily back, the mother added. “She was beautiful and passionate and innocent,” the mother said, “and she deserved so much more.” Lily was on the minds of those who turned up at the day care, where the gaping hole was boarded up with plywood and a cluster of stuffed animals, flowers and candles were left in memoriam. Ralph Velez, 48, left a stuffed bear from his 5-year-old son Xavier, who goes to the day care but was unhurt. The bear was a gift from a few Christmases ago, and Xavier who can’t stop talking about the crash wanted to give it to honor his friends, Velez said. “He’ll say, ‘stupid car,’ or ‘stupid driver,'” Velez said. “He told us last night that he remembers the driver, who wasn’t hurt, getting out and saying, ‘What did I do?
