Philadelphia Car Accident LawyerA Car Accident, even with insurance coverage can be a complicated landmine of issues that you should handle with great care. When you or a loved one is in a Car Accident, it is very important to document certain information.
First, if you have a camera phone, take pictures at the scene. You do not have to be hurt to document information. Take a photo of the license plates on all the cars that were involved.
Second, collect all potential insurance information from all drivers. It is ok to provide yours to them.
Third, make sure that you take pictures of all the property damage that was caused by the crash and then take photographs of all the property damage that may have been on any of the vehicles before the accident.
Fourth, if possible, take pictures of the points of rest for the cars after the crash.
Last, if anyone stops and says that they saw the incident, you must get their name and number in case you need them for later.
Do not rely on the police to document everything that they should document. Many times, police reports are incomplete and even inaccurate. In addition, police come to the scene after the incident so they have no firsthand knowledge of how the Accident happened. Therefore, sometimes, they adopt the wrong story or other set of facts.

The next thing that needs to occur is a reporting of the incident to your insurance company. Your insurance company will handle the property damage on your case and set up a medical billing system for your injuries, should you have any. In the event that you do not have collision coverage or you were driving someone’s car that was uninsured, then you must rely upon the wrongdoer’s insurance company to compensate you for your car damage and pay your medical bills. However, this can be a frustrating and aggravating process. In the case of no collision coverage, the other driver’s insurance company can and usually does, give you a hard time. Many times, in a clear cut case, they will try and place a portion of the blame for the accident on you and therefore pay you less for your property damage. As for medical coverage, in the case of the uninsured driver, the defendant driver’s insurance company must pay your medical bills in Pennsylvania. This is mandatory but can take a long time. Without a lawyer, the wrongdoer’s insurance company can delay and that will delay your medical payments. This is why you should contact Greg Prosmushkin, PC and let them handle all the aggravation.
