What Should You Do Immediately After a DUI Car Wreck in South Carolina?
Immediately after a crash, the first priority is of course health and safety. Once the police arrive, they get the insurance and contact information for the other driver and provide you with an FR-10 Insurance Verification form, which must be completed and returned to the DMV within 15 days of the accident. Make a copy for your records. Once you are stable medically, you want to make sure all your legal rights are protected. To guard yourself against insurance tricks or evidence disappearing, we suggest you do the following:
- Contact a DUI Accident Attorney
- Contact your Insurance Company
- Refer all insurance questions and requests to your attorney
