Greg Owen discusses how Owen, Patterson & Owen can help right away

Take Action! When it comes to car accidents there are three actions you must take right away to protect yourself:

  1. Get medical care: Sometimes it’s hard to tell immediately just how extensive injuries sustained during an accident really are. If anyone appears seriously injured, call an ambulance by dialing 911. If an ambulance is deemed unnecessary, be sure to follow up with your personal doctor or a nearby urgent care or emergency clinic to make sure you or your passengers haven’t sustained an injury that could become devastating later.
  2. Speak with the police at the scene of the accident: It’s important that you call the police and file a report to help determine who is at fault. While it’s understandable that you may be upset, it is essential that you answer the police’s questions as they gather information at the scene of the accident.
  3. Exchange insurance and contact information: If police or other officials are not at the scene of the accident, it is very important that you or one of your passengers gets the name of the other driver, their contact information such as a phone number, the make, model and license plate number of the other vehicle involved in the accident, and their insurance information.
