On this week's episode of The Legal Difference, attorney Wes Gralapp talks about the steps you should take if you're ever involved in a car accident. Wes stresses the importance of safety immediately following an accident. His first recommendation is to stay into your car until you feel oriented enough to step out and further assess the situation. You should check yourself and passengers for injuries, as well as the other party to determine if an ambulance needs to be called. Wes also talks about the importance of always calling the police after an accident, as they can direct traffic and get your vehicle out of the road if you are unable. When they arrive, answer all questions honestly and cooperate with their requests for your information. Wes also reminds viewers to gather their own evidence at the scene by swapping information with the other driver and witnesses, as well as taking photos of the damage.
