What to Do if You've Been in a Car Accident

Accidents are emotionally difficult and can leave you overwhelmed or anxious. Often, the things you do right after an auto accident, regardless of who may be at fault, set the stage for how your experience with your insurance claims and ultimate settlements may play out.

There are several actions you need to take—and purposefully not take—to lessen the likelihood that your auto insurance company will put up a fight about the severity of your injuries and/or another driver's insurance will question damages to your vehicle.

We often tell clients that the settlement process starts at the accident scene, and there are a few key steps to take to help yourself immediately after an auto accident.

The most important thing to do after an accident is to relocate somewhere safe and get medical attention for any potential injuries for yourself or any passengers. Even if it appears you are fine, having medical attention immediately after an accident can help in case you have medical complications that directly result from the accident.

After a collision, it may be difficult to focus, or you may have heightened anxiety. Taking notes about what happened, getting photos of the accident, and keeping track of insurance information from the other driver is crucial in accidents. These detailed notes and pictures can also help later in case the other driver has a different account of events.

Once you have received medical treatment and taken notes and photos, you should call your insurance company to begin a report for the accident. Typically, the insurance company will not require a police report to start the claim, but you will likely need one further in the process, so it is important to obtain one. You may also wish to speak to a lawyer at this point.

When you are involved in an accident, the person at fault can sometimes be held responsible for medical bills or the cost of repairing a vehicle, depending on many factors. Never apologize for the accident. Instead, ask the other driver and passengers if they are okay. Even a simple "I'm sorry" can implicate you as the guilty party, even if you were not at fault.

When Should I Call A Lawyer After a Car Accident?

After an accident, it may be tempting to just move on with your life, especially if you think you are uninjured or there wasn't much damage to either vehicle. However, just because there is no visible damage or injury does not mean that you will not have issues in the future related to the accident.

If you are involved in any type of collision, even one where damage to either vehicle seems minor, you may benefit from having a car accident attorney on your side.

It is never too early to call one of our skilled local car accident lawyers in Greensburg, PA. You can call right at the scene, or if you have injuries that require relocation to a hospital, you may want to call while you are in the hospital.

While you should always prioritize your physical health after an accident, we encourage you to call a Pennsylvania car accident lawyer as soon as possible, as waiting too long can minimize what we can do for you. When you call Westmoreland Injury Lawyers, we can help you navigate the aftermath of an accident and help you get the justice you deserve as swiftly as possible.

What Does it Mean that Pennsylvania is a No-Fault State?

In Pennsylvania, a unique no-fault law affects those in car accidents. This law states that regardless of who is at fault, each driver's insurance covers their medical expenses. The no-fault law applies to people with limited tort insurance—the minimum required coverage for all drivers in Pennsylvania.

However, the second type of insurance available in PA is called a "full tort" insurance policy. If you do have full tort insurance, you may be able to bypass this law and sue for personal damages, like pain and suffering or lost wages, aside from the medical bills. If you are unsure of your policy or need help understanding what you can do after an accident, please speak with a car accident lawyer as soon as possible.


Yes, there are some exceptions to the no-fault law in motor vehicle accidents. The other driver must be at fault in most cases for these exceptions. Suppose a driver has life-altering injuries, or injuries that will significantly impact their quality of life negatively. In that case, they may be able to sue for damages from the other driver's insurance, even if their coverage is a limited tort policy. Speaking with a local car accident lawyer in Greensburg, PA, today can help determine if you have a case.
