Yes! It is imperative for you to contact the police right away and to stay at the accident’s location until the police say you can leave. The police need to investigate the accident, take statements, and examine the drivers to make sure they are not under the influence. The police may also help in firmly fixing an admittance of fault from a negligent driver, which will be a key piece of evidence in a personal injury lawsuit.
If you’re in an accident and not sure whether the damage is substantial, err on the side of caution. Refuse to give in to the appeal to “keep things simple” by avoiding contact with the police or your insurance company. Who knows? You may have suffered injuries that you are not aware of until well after the accident.
If you are injured, immediately consult with your doctor and a skilled Arizona personal injury attorney. They can supply you with the information you need to make the best decisions going forward.
