Know What to Do After a Car Accident in the Bronx

It’s happened—you’ve been involved in a car accident in the Bronx.  At this point, most accident victims don’t know what to do next. It’s important to first remember to remain calm—what you do in the time immediately following a car accident can be important to proving that someone else caused the accident later, when making a claim for compensation.

Of course, your first step should be to seek medical attention and help any parties who were injured in the car accident (911 can send emergency responders to the scene).  Additionally, to protect your right to fair compensation at a later point:

  • Contact the police and, if you can, explain the events leading up to the accident as calmly as you can.  The police will create a formal accident report, which is important to protecting your right to insurance compensation,
  • Get insurance information and contact information from other drivers involved in the car accident,
  • Take photos or videos of the accident scene with your phone to preserve any available evidence,
  • Get the contact information of any witnesses to the car accident,
  • Do not say much to an insurance company that contacts you quickly after the accident, and also refrain from providing any written statements to an insurance adjuster,
  • Do not sign any documents provided by the insurance company or other parties to the accident without first speaking with a car accident lawyer,
  • Call Proner & Proner as soon as possible—our Bronx car accident lawyers can explain your rights and take care of the rest.

Once you have received immediate medical treatment, you should also try to stay organized.  Keep a written journal where you write down things like:

  • Whether you’re in pain,
  • Whether you can go to work,
  • What your doctor said that day,
  • What you would have been doing if not for the injury (caring for children, enjoying a baseball game—all details matter).

Never throw away any documents that your doctor gives you.  Keep your bills, medical records, notes and any other documentation in a single file so that nothing gets lost in the shuffle.

About the Bronx, NY

The Bronx is located just to the north/northeast of Manhattan, across the Harlem River.  A bustling borough of nearly 1.5 million residents, the Bronx is an extremely diverse area—both in terms of cultures and characteristics.  Because both Urban communities and residential districts are located in close proximity, many Bronx residents commute via personal car on a daily basis.

Frequently Asked Questions About Bronx, NY Car Accident Claims

FAQ: Why can’t I just trust that the insurance company’s settlement award is a good deal?

Insurance companies are always out to make money. That’s true even if you’re dealing with your own car insurance company. They might offer you a settlement that covers all of your out-of-pocket expenses thus far. However, they rarely offer a fair settlement for your future expenses—and your treatment usually doesn’t end on the day you accept a settlement. You can’t go back and ask for more later, so it’s always best to schedule a free consultation with an experienced lawyer who can help.

FAQ: The other driver and insurance company are saying the car accident was my fault. Can you help?

Yes. In fact, this is quite common in car accident cases. Our lawyers investigate ourselves to get evidence about what happened. That evidence might include:

– Video surveillance (which is much more common today),
– Witness testimony,
– Photos that someone took,
– Testimony by an accident reconstruction expert who can use scientific skills to find out what happened.

In some cases, more than one driver might have caused the accident. That only means that your compensation award could be partially reduced to the extent your actions contributed to the accident. Of course, we work to build the strongest case possible to protect your full compensation award.
