Let’s face it: accidents happen.

What To Do After a Car Accident?

Let’s first talk about what steps to take in the immediate aftermath of an accident.

Do I Need to Seek Medical Care After a Wreck?

Visit your primary care physician if you’re feeling pain following your crash. If you don’t have a PCP, you can visit an urgent care clinic. Scheduling an appointment with a medical care provider is the safest and smartest way to ensure your long-term health. 

Adrenaline can mask injuries following an accident and pain may not appear until days later once the endorphins wear off.  Whether you visit an emergency room, urgent care, your primary care physician, a chiropractor, or a physical therapist…put your health first if you’ve been in a wreck.

If you’ve yet to seek medical attention, call a medical care provider today and schedule an appointment. If you’re unsure who to call, click here to explore your options: Medical Treatment Options After a Wreck, or call our law firm today.

Common Injuries After a Car Wreck


…is one of the most common injuries resulting from a car accident, happening most often in rear-end collisions. Whiplash occurs when your head and neck are suddenly jerked back and forth (like the cracking of a whip…hence the name), and symptoms include neck pain, stiffness, and headaches. Most symptoms resolve over time, but they may require medication or therapy. Moreover, a smaller number will suffer from chronic neck problems and pain afterward. Other neck injuries include disc injury and cervical radiculopathy (irritated nerves).

Back Injuries

Your spine is divided into three different sections: cervical, thoracic, and lumbar vertebrae. With the discs, muscles, tendons, and nerves in your spinal area, back injuries are common, but also very painful. In a car wreck, back injuries can range from strained muscles or dislocated discs to serious spinal cord trauma. In many cases, chiropractic work or physical therapy can relieve pain and help realign your spine, but some injuries may require surgery to restore mobility. Never ignore back pain after being in a crash.


…are usually caused when your head strikes a part of the car, such as the steering wheel or window, giving your brain a “jolt” that can actually cause it to move inside your skull. A concussion is classified as a mild traumatic brain injury, and if you or someone you love has been involved in a car wreck, we’d advise you to watch for signs of a concussion: confusion, slurred speech, nausea or vomiting, headaches, blurred vision, or memory loss.

Leg and Knee Injuries

Most people think of upper body injuries when discussing car wrecks, but your legs and knees are also at risk. These injuries usually result when a passenger hits their knees or legs on the dashboard, or when part of the car is smashed inward. The knee area, with its ligaments and tendons, is especially prone to injury. Other possible injuries include fractures, broken bones, or cuts and bruises.

It’s possible to handle your accident claim without the help of an attorney. Unfortunately, too many Arkansans are taken advantage of by the insurance company.

Continue ahead to read our 7 red flags that indicate it’s time to hire an attorney. If none of those red flags appear, then you’re in a good position to handle your claim on your own.

First, call the at-fault insurance company to open your accident claim.

Once you’ve opened your claim with the at-fault insurance, be aware of the following two tactics that insurance may use to minimize your claim.

Here are 2 common tactics that an insurance company will use to try and settle your claim at a minimum value:

  1. They’ll try and settle your claim immediately
  2. They’ll delay settling your claim as long as possible

Insurance Tries Settling Your Claim Quickly

Adjusters will offer a settlement within the first few phone calls to car accident victims for one simple reason: it saves the insurance company time and money. A quick resolution may seem appealing, but you shouldn’t take the bait: accepting this initial settlement may cost you dearly.

Why wait? In the first days or weeks after a car wreck, you can’t yet know what your claim is fully worth.

Secondly, once you agree to a settlement, it’s game over. You cannot negotiate for another settlement afterward. That’s why a personal injury attorney will not begin negotiations until you’ve been released by a doctor and have all the data on property damage, lost wages, and more. You need to do the same when handling your own claim.

Before you speak with an insurance adjuster, remember these five things:

  1. Remain Calm
  2. Ask for the adjuster’s information
  3. Avoid sharing too much information about yourself.
  4. Decline to give detailed accident or injury information until you’re ready.
  5. Be firm that you’re waiting to settle until you’re ready.

Insurance is Delaying Settling Your Claim

On the other hand, delaying your claim’s settlement is a tactic designed to frustrate you. The phrase “let’s just get this over with” typically doesn’t translate to maximum value for your claim. And insurance adjusters know this!

If an insurance company is not answering your calls, here are 4 tips to get your claim settled:

  • Be patient, but persistent.
  • Try another form of communication.
  • Ask to speak with a supervisor.
  • Hire a lawyer.

Do I Need an Attorney After a Car Wreck?

1. Claim Denied

If the insurance company has denied your claim or their offer is lower than the cost of your damages.

2. Serious Injury

If you have a serious injury that needs ongoing treatment with significant medical bills. 

3. At-Fault’s Story Changes

If the at-fault driver has changed their story and is now denying fault.  

4. Pre-Existing Injuries

If you have pre-existing injuries insurance may use a pre-existing injury as leverage to lower your settlement.  

5. Unfairly Treated

If you’re unsure whether you’re being treated fairly by insurance, or you simply aren’t clear on your legal rights in Arkansas.

If it’s been more than a year since your accident.

What Type of Compensation Will I Receive?

In terms of the types of claims you might open after an auto accident, you have many options.

In addition to property damage and medical bills, you also have the right to be compensated for pain and suffering, mental anguish, lost wages, lost profits, and the injury itself. Additionally, some injuries are permanent in nature.

Future damages can also be proven and claimed.

Will I Have to Go to Court?

Typically, these claims are settled outside of court without having to file a lawsuit. Attorneys can help you position your claim to settle outside of court while preparing to go to court if necessary.

Your attorney will discuss the various types of compensation you’ll be able to seek. They’ll ask questions, and make sure that you receive full compensation for your damages. If full compensation demands filing suit then you can trust our team to handle the entire litigation process.
