Insurance companies may deny your claim or only pay up to certain policy limits. If your claim is denied, or your injuries exceed what the insurance company will pay, you can potentially file a claim against anyone who contributed to your car accident injuries. This could include:

  • Another vehicle driver
  • Truck driver
  • Bicyclist
  • Pedestrians
  • Bus driver
  • Rideshare driver
  • Other

What to do After a Buffalo Car Accident

After a car accident, victims can be left feeling overwhelmed and unsure about what to do next. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, The Barnes Firm recommends that you:

  1. Get to safety and call 911. Your safety should be your top priority after a car accident. Move yourself away from oncoming traffic and call 911 to report the accident and request medical attention.
  2. Collect evidence at the accident scene. Documenting the accident scene is extremely important after a car accident. Make sure to collect information from all drivers involved in the crash, as well as any witnesses. It is also important to take pictures and videos of the damage your vehicle obtained. Before leaving the scene, request a copy of the police report.
  3. Visit a medical professional. Even if you don’t think you are injured, it is wise to seek medical attention after a car accident. You may not experience symptoms for days or weeks after a car accident, and a medical professional can help identify your injuries even if you are not showing symptoms. Remember to save any medical notes or bills you receive. These are extremely important in car accident claims.

“My lawyer Derek Roller helped with my automobile accident lawsuit. I could tell he took this case seriously and always gave me updates with what was happening. They were quick to deal with any questions or issues pertaining to my case and super helpful. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a capable law firm with great people that show lots of care and effort when doing their work. I feel the need to mention Kaela Lauricella. She was very helpful in answering any questions I had and put in a lot of effort to work around my schedule, making the whole process feel very simple and easy for me. Both were very professional and I would recommend anyone to the Barnes Firm.”
