These actions will help you avoid future hassles with insurance claims adjusters and help you obtain fair $ compensation for your bodily injuries and property damages.1. If you are injured, immediately obtain needed medical treatment.

If you are injured in an auto accident, immediately obtain all needed medical treatment. Go to the nearest Bothell hospital emergency room, or to your personal physician. An auto accident injury, if untreated, may become substantially worse and take longer to heal. And if you fail to promptly seek medical treatment, the at fault driver's insurance claims adjuster may later suspect that your delay meant that you weren't really injured. Then greatly discount your accident injury claim's $ value.

2. Assist the injured.

If someone is seriously injured, call 911 or the Bothell police and tell them an ambulance is needed. Make the injured person as comfortable as

possible, but do not move him or her unless its absolutely necessary to avoid further injury.3.  Call 911. Insist on a Bothell police investigation and accident report.In many cases, there are no witnesses and you and the other driver may have differing versions of how the accident occurred. If you do not request a Bothell police investigation, you may seriously reduce your chances of getting full compensation, or may be blamed for an accident that is not your fault. Bothell Police are not required, however, to file a report when there are no injuries and none of the vehicles has more more than $750 of property damage. They are also not required to prepare a report if the collision occurs on private property such as a parking lot.4. Do not move your auto while waiting for Bothell police to arrive.Unless your vehicle poses an immediate hazard to other traffic, it is important that you leave it in the same position that it came to rest after the accident. Ask the other driver not to move his or her vehicle until the Bothell police arrive. The single most important piece of evidence that the Bothell police officer has to determining fault is the position of the vehicles after the accident.5. If you are injured, tell the investigating Bothell police officers.

The first record of your injuries will be contained in the investigating officer's report. If you fail to mention to the Bothell police officer that you were injured, it may create suspicion in the mind of the insurance adjuster that you were not hurt. Ordinarily the Bothell officer will ask if you are injured. However, if the officer does not ask if you are injured, or assumes that you are all right, let the officer know immediately of all injuries or pain.

6. Obtain names and telephone numbers of eyewitnesses.

Often by the time a Bothell police officer arrives at the scene, witnesses to a collision are gone. Therefore, it is very important for you to identify any auto accident witnesses and write down their names, addresses, and telephone numbers.

7. File your accident report when required by law.

You are not required to file an accident report when the collision is investigated by a Bothell law enforcement officer who files a report. You may, however, file your own report if you wish or if you disagree with details reported by the officer. Your report, which is filed with the

Washington State Patrol in Olympia, must be sent within four days of the auto accident.
8. If you have a severe injury, do not try to settle your own car mishap claim.If you have suffered a severe injury requiring follow-up medical attention, you should think about working with an attorney to represent you. An experienced accident attorney will generally make sure that you receive the compensation that is due you, generally more than you will be used in settlement by insurance adjuster, even after attorney's costs are paid.If you choose to accept a settlement for injury without looking for legal representation, you might receive a settlement that does not fairly compensate you for permanent injuries and damages. Once a claim is settled, it can never ever be reopened. The very best rule is not to sign a release for a minimum of six months following an injury. If you're uncertain about whether to settle, talk with an attorney who handles accident cases.9. Promptly report your loss to your own insurance company, and the other driver's insurance company, but do not give a statement to the other driver's insurance adjuster until you have talked to an auto accident lawyer.

The odds are that a claims adjuster for the other driver will be assigned to your claim before you have been able to retain an lawyer. This may happen as soon as a day or two after the accident. The adjuster will request permission to take a recorded or written statement.

10. Your time for making an auto accident claim is limited by law. (Statute of Limitations)

For every injury or death claim, there is a period of time during which you must file your claim with the court or the claim will be barred. This time limit is called “statute of limitations".

In Washington State, the period for bringing an injury or death claim is usually three years from the date of the auto accident, but there are some exceptions. The period for bringing a claim for injury to a child does not begin to run until the child's 18th birthday. A claim arising out of the death of a child, however, is usually limited to three years.

Although you may have awhile to actually file your injury claim with the court, the sooner you consult with a personal injury lawyer following an accident, the more that lawyer can do to help you on your claim.
