What to Do After a Car Accident
When it comes to building a convincing car accident claim, our team of attorneys can build their arguments on strong evidence. Most of the evidence that proves highly useful to a case can be found immediately after an accident, which makes what you do in those moments very important. With some luck, you took all the right steps, and we can now use the evidence you gathered to improve your case’s chances of succeeding.
Let us know if you took these steps after a car accident:
- Call 911: You should always dial 911 if someone was injured or a vehicle was severely damaged in a crash. Emergency responders can provide critical aid. Later, the reports from those same responders can be used to back your claim.
- Take photographs: Your smartphone’s camera is the first detective on the case after a car accident. Use it to snap photographs of all damage and injuries, as well as traffic and weather conditions. Pictures really are worth a thousand words when it comes to proving who caused a wreck.
- Talk to everyone: You need to know the identifying and insurance information of all other drivers involved, so you should talk to them to collect it before anyone thinks about leaving, which is illegal. You might also be able to get helpful information from passersby and eyewitnesses who are willing to give you a written testimony.
- See a doctor: Importantly, you should always see a doctor after being in a car accident, no matter how badly you have been injured. You might have some injuries you don’t fully feel yet, like a soft tissue injury, so a doctor should be given a chance to check and diagnose you. Also, this step creates a medical record in your file that shows when you were injured and what caused those injuries.
In case you missed a step to take after being in a car accident, don’t worry. Thanks to our experience and professional network, we can sometimes investigate a car accident scene after-the-fact and still uncover impressive proof of liability.
Why do you need to do so much after being in a car accident? The truth is that the other driver and their insurance company will probably try to blame you for what happened. By getting useful evidence, you can be better prepared to counter their arguments and prove that you aren’t liable for the accident.
Liability in a personal injury claim, such as your car accident case, is a legal term for who is to blame. The more blame that can be placed on the other driver, the more compensation you can collect from them. In Nevada, comparative negligence law bars you from getting any compensation from the other driver if you were more than 50% liable for the crash, so determining and proving liability with a high degree of accuracy is a must.
How Our Lawyers Help with Your Car Accident Claim
You have surely been through a lot already if you’ve been in a car accident. Do you really want to take hours and hours to figure out how to best pursue your car accident claim? Probably not. Our Mesquite car accident lawyers can help with your claim by taking it over as much as you want. We can manage every step and give you time to rest while also giving your case the attention it needs to succeed.
Let our attorneys help by:
- Investigating your accident
- Calculating the damages owed to you
- Determining who is liable for your damages

- Negotiating with auto insurance companies
- Pushing for a settlement
If a settlement doesn’t seem like it will happen, then our attorneys can also take your case to court. We have trial attorneys on our team who share decades of legal experience. Litigation doesn’t scare us off like insurance defense teams might think it will.
Is It Worth Suing After a Car Accident?
You have probably asked yourself if it is worth suing after a car accident. The answer depends on the severity of your injuries and how badly your life has been impacted by them. If you didn’t get hurt and your car was only minorly damaged, then you probably don’t need to sue. But if you were seriously injured, missed work, and might not fully recover, then, yes, it is probably worth suing after your car accident.
Figuring out if you want to file a claim or lawsuit against the other driver isn’t something you have to do by yourself. We would be happy to discuss your potential legal options during a free case evaluation. If we don’t think your case needs to involve a lawyer, then we’ll let you know. Honesty is an important policy at Bertoldo, Baker, Carter, Smith & Cullen.
