First and foremost, you should contact law enforcement. Find a safe area at the scene of the accident and call 911. Wait for the Arizona Highway Patrol or local police to arrive. Cooperate with the police, but avoid going into detail or discussing fault.
After law enforcement leaves the scene, the next thing you should do is get medical attention. Even if you walked away from the accident without a scratch, go see a doctor. You may have a hidden or delayed injury. Whether it’s your primary care provider or an urgent care center, don’t delay in getting checked out. It’s the best thing you can do for your health and your rights.
Then, as soon as possible, ideally before you talk to the insurance company, call a verified car accident attorney. You were on your own at the scene; don’t go at it alone for your case.
