When a car accident happens in Atlanta, the most important first step is to make sure that everyone is okay. If anyone involved needs medical attention, call 911 and attend to the first aid needs of the injured person.
If no one is hurt, it’s important to call the authorities and have an officer come and investigate the scene as an independent, objective witness to determine liability. You’ll also need to exchange personal information with the other drivers involved and contact your insurance company so that a claim will be opened.
Once your claim is opened, the next important step to contact an attorney to evaluate your scenario. It’s possible you’ll be in a position that you’ll be pursuing a lawsuit. It’s also possible that you’ll need to protect yourself from a potential lawsuit.
