What to do After a Car Accident

If you are in an accident involving a car accident, your first priority should be your safety. You should immediately call 911. Once you have checked yourself and others for injuries, you should do the following:

  • Gather the other involved drivers’ information, including insurance information

  • Contact the police and fill out a police report

  • Take pictures of the scene of the accident, including damage to your vehicle

  • Obtain any eyewitness statements if possible

  • Contact your own insurance company and inform them of the accident

  • Reach out to a car accident attorney near you

Punitive Damages

Many people ask us about the laws surrounding drunk driving accident claims. The state of Virginia imposes strict laws against drunk driving to prevent accidents. In a typical personal injury case, an individual may only be able to recover basic compensation for damages. However, state law allows for statutory punitive damages as well. These punitive damages enforce additional financial punishment against the defendant and create a stronger message against drunk driving.

Proving punitive damages are merited is the challenging part. You must be able to show that a driver knew their ability to drive would be impaired if they became intoxicated. You will also need to prove that their impaired ability is what caused your injury or wrongful death of a loved one. With the right Harrisonburg DUI lawyer on your side, you can successfully secure the justice you deserve.
