Collex Collision | Tips for Dealing With An Automobile Accident

Elsewhere, Collex Collision has written about the most critical first responses to a car accident. Collex Collision explains that drivers must make sure everyone is OK, call 911 if medical attention is needed, move out of the way of traffic and call the police to report an accident. In the meantime, Collex Collision adds that drivers must exchange insurance information with fellow motorists, and call the insurance company to file an accident claim. Most of these things, says Collex Collision, are common knowledge and can be done during the first hours after an accident.

Collex Collision continues that many car accident injuries are often not visible or obvious at the site of the accident. Usually the adrenaline released by a car crash, notes Collex Collision, crowds out any aches and pains a person may feel. This is a condition that doctors and insurance adjustors refer to as “soft tissue damage” and it may not manifest until days after a car accident. For this reason, Collex Collision says that it is important not so sign any documents at the crash site. Do not discuss any release of liability with other drivers. Many motorists have reported that they were not hurt at an accident, says Collex Collision, only to find days later that they were in severe pain, requiring physical therapy or long-term chiropractic care.

The good news is that insurance companies are acquainted with the phenomenon of “soft tissue damage.” Collex Collision advises anyone who has been in a car accident to visit a doctor for an examination as soon after the accident as possible. In the same way that a police report is of critical value in the automotive repair process, Collex Collision explains that a doctor’s report is essential information that any insurance adjuster will require before covering further medical care. Information from a doctor will help a motorist decide if they ought to file a personal injury claim in addition to an accident claim. Collex Collision points out that these are two different claims and that a standard accident claim will not cover any medical expenses. A separate personal injury claim must also be filed with the insurance company.
