What to do following a motor vehicle accident in Kentucky

Motor vehicle accidents cause thousands of injuries and deaths each year across Kentucky and the entire country. They also cause millions of dollars in property damage and other claims. If you ever find yourself involved in a car crash in the Lexington area, you need to know what you should do following the crash. Follow these tips so you protect yourself after a crash.

Never leave the scene of a crash, even if you were the victim and need medical care. Emergency responders will be there within minutes to examine you and transport you to the hospital. Leaving the scene of an accident is a crime. Be sure you stick around and give your statement to the police.

You should never touch any debris or other evidence at the scene of a crash. Leave everything where it landed so police officers can take pictures and measurements for their report and reconstruction of the crash scene.

Give a statement to the police officer at the scene. Provide your contact information and make sure you answer their questions honestly. Even if you weren't at fault, be sure you don't provide more information that what they request.

Never let your emotions get the best of you at a crash scene. This includes uttering the word ''sorry.'' Even though you didn't cause the crash, saying that you're sorry can put you in a bad spot with insurance companies when filing a claim.

Being involved in a motor vehicle crash can be stressful and overwhelming. If you were injured you could be facing months of rehabilitation and recovery. Protect your rights as a crash victim by following the tips presented today.
