Been in a Car Accident in Atlanta? The Steps You Need to Take

Being in a vehicle accident in Atlanta is terrifying. Even if you aren’t seriously hurt, you may still be in a dazed state of shock.

You may not be able to prevent an accident if another driver is at fault. But with this list of instructions in mind, you’ll be prepared to make the right decisions in the moments after a car crash and fight for the justice you deserve.

Make Sure Everyone Is Safe

Everyone who can move should exit the vehicle and get to safety away from oncoming traffic. Don’t move someone who’s unconscious or has a neck or back injury unless they are in a dangerous place, like a burning vehicle.

Call the Police

If no one has by now, call the police right away.

Exchange Information with the Other Driver

You and the other driver should have each other’s:

● Driver’s license number
● Vehicle license plate number
● Name, address, and phone number
● Insurance information

Take Pictures and Document All You Possibly Can

Take pictures and write down as much as you can about the accident. Talk with witnesses who saw the incident and get their contact information. All of this will help your case later on when recovering damages. Save records from your medical treatment related to the accident. Document how the accident has affected your ability to earn money.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
