What Should I Do After a Serious Car Accident on the Beltway


If You’ve Been in a Serious Car Accident, You May Be Shaken Up and Unsure of What To DoDealing With a Serious Accident on the Maryland Beltway

After a serious accident on the beltway, I-66, I-270, or any of the crowded highways around D.C., there are a number of steps to take (and a number to avoid as well). Naturally, the safety of drivers, passengers, and pedestrians comes first. Make sure everyone is safe and gets the immediate medical attention needed for any injuries caused by the accident. Even if you don’t feel injured at the time, call an ambulance or go to the hospital to get checked out. Injuries may appear later on, even weeks later, due to the adrenaline your body produces at the time of injury.

After an accident caused by another driver, you’ll probably be contacted by that driver’s insurance company. The insurance adjuster will want all kinds of personal information and try to get you to give a recorded statement. Especially if you have serious injuries, don’t give a statement or sign any forms without getting information about your rights and responsibilities. Wait until you have a clear head and have spoken to an attorney about your rights before you allow the insurance company to set you up for a lower settlement. They may even try to deny your claim if you don’t get medical treatment right away and get the treatment connected to the accident in the medical records.
