We recommend that, if possible, you collect certain information at the scene. Obtain all you can from the at-fault driver, such as name address and home and cellular phone numbers. Get the license plate number and the driver’s automobile or commercial truck insurance policy information and number. Get the contact information of all witnesses. Take cell phone pictures of the vehicles and the scene.
If you have been hurt at all, seek medical care at the ER or your primary doctor immediately or shortly following the accident, no more than a few days. Taking each of these steps will help ensure that if you do need or choose to hire a car accident attorney, your case is off to the best possible start. If you have any questions, call the Atlanta car and truck accident lawyers of The Millar Law Firm, our telephone consultations are free. 770-400-0000 (770-“4 Million”).
