After a Car Accident

Motor vehicle accidents typically happen very fast, without much time to process how they happened, while the consequences can be devastating and are often chaotic. FindLaw's After a Car Accident section focuses on what steps motorists and others involved in car accidents should take in order to best recover from injuries and successfully deal with the process. Articles cover first steps immediately following an accident (such as ensuring the safety of everyone involved), why it's important to take careful notes about the accident and any injuries, how to interact with insurers, whether to sue the other party, and more.
