Often the first question is the damage to your car, but let us help you with other questions you may have:
Should I report the accident to the Police? Even with simple fender bender accidents, It is always best to to report the accident to the police department. This will allow the accident to be documented in case any further issues arise after the accident.
Should I call my insurance company after an accident in Clayton, Garner, or Johnston County? Contacting your Insurance agent or company whether its Geico, Nationwide, Farm Bureau, All State, State Farm or any local independent agent is an important step in establishing your claim after a motor vehicle accident. Do not allow the instigator of the accident talk you into "not getting insurance" involved. If the accident was NOT your fault and you do not get your insurance or police involved there may be some problems that occur that you may not be covered against and it could end up costing you a lot more!
How do I get my police report after a car accident? The City of Clayton or Garner will allow you to access your police report online at their website. If you accident occurred outside the city limits, but within Johnston or Wake County you will need to contact the Sheriff's Office or the Highway Patrol. They will be able to help you obtain your report of the accident whether you can look it up online or have it mailed to you.
What is the best repair, auto body, or collision shop to take my car? Your insurance company will be able to suggest several certified auto collision centers in the Clayton or Johnston County area. The insurance should take care of the damages for you and many will offer a rental car while your car is being fixed.
How do I receive my settlement after my car accident? This is not a simple calculation as there are many factors that need to be taken into consideration. The insurance companies are typically going to try to settle without paying too much in the claim. Contacting a local Johnston or Wake County attorney would be the best advice so that they may can assess if your settlement is fair or if you should seek a more fair settlement for your injuries and/or damages.
Do I need an attorney? Elite Chiropractic Center of Clayton recommends retaining an attorney in Claytonwho specializes in personal injury and car accident cases in Johnston County. Typically you will not have to pay unless you win the settlement and consultations are usually free.

Do I need to see a doctor after my car accident? It is important to get "checked" out after a car accident. First thoughts of damage and insurance often neglect the more important issue of your personal health. Seeking proper care will help determine if there are any hidden injuries you may not be aware of. Major car accidents can certainly lead to severe injuries, but even low-impact (fender benders) or seemingly harmless accidents can cause significant long-term pain that can happen long after the motor vehicle accident.
