5 Tips for Dealing with the Aftermath of a Car Accident with an Amazon Vehicle

Accidents involving Amazon vehicles are often difficult and complex. Therefore, when dealing with the aftermath of this type of accident, you may quickly feel stressed, frustrated, and overwhelmed. However, it is important to take a deep breath and remember that you do not have to go through this process alone. Instead, you can lean on an Amazon car accident lawyer who will help you reduce your chances of making any mistakes or errors that could negatively affect the outcome of your case. To help you get started, here are five important tips to remember when dealing with the aftermath of a car accident with an Amazon vehicle.

1.     Make sure your accident is reported to law enforcement

No matter how minor your accident may seem, you should report it to law enforcement. Even if the Amazon driver begs you to not report the accident and offers to pay cash for your damages, it is highly recommended that you still choose to report the accident to authorities. This ensures that your accident is on police record, which can be used to show proof of your accident when you file a claim.

You can simply do this by dialing 9-1-1 and remaining at the scene until the police officers arrive. They will ask you several questions and create a police report, which you can access within a few days. If you have already left the scene of the accident, you may be able to call or visit your local police department to file a report.

2.     Visit a licensed medical provider and go to all follow up appointments

It is crucial that you visit a licensed medical provider immediately after leaving the accident scene. Even if you think that you only have a few scratches, bruises, or cuts that will heal within a few days, you should still go to a local hospital, clinic, or doctor’s office. This ensures that you do not have hidden injuries that could become very serious later on, such as a traumatic brain injury, internal organ damage, internal bleeding, or soft tissue damage.

The medical provider will make notes of your injuries, document your visit, and refer you to other specialists for follow-up care. It is essential that you continue to go to these appointments as it shows that you were injured in the accident, you take your health seriously, and you are following a treatment plan to get better.

3.     Do not forget to tell your insurance company about the accident

 Many roads have different traffic signs, signaling different directions and instructions, which can often feel very overwhelming and confusing. New drivers should be properly informed of all the traffic signs to ensure they recognize them when they come across them on the road. Traffic signs will signal you to where to go, if there’s a specific lane to take, detours, specific hours or days when you’re allowed to drive a specific lane, speed limits according to turns, and when you’re entering residential areas or a school area.

4.     Gather and keep all documents in a safe place

As soon as you can, you should begin gathering evidence and documents related to your accident and keep them in a safe place. Some of the most important evidence pieces you can collect are:

  • Photos and videos
  • Police report
  • Medical records and reports
  • Receipts
  • Prescriptions
  • Journal entries

5.     Hire a car accident lawyer to legally assist you

It is highly recommended that you retain a lawyer before you talk to the Amazon driver’s insurance company or file a car accident claim. Insurance agents can seem very nice, but their goal is to trick you into saying something that could be used against you, which could jeopardize your claim. By hiring a lawyer who has experience helping Amazon car accident victims, you can rest assured, knowing that your legal rights are protected and that you have a high chance of obtaining the maximum compensation you need and deserve.

An experienced Amazon vehicle accident attorney can make your recovery less stressful since you will not have to worry about how to move forward with a claim. Working with a lawyer ensures that you do not miss the statute of limitations to file the claim or any other paperwork deadlines with the court.
