After being involved in a vehicle accident there are things you should always do to optimize your KABCO scale score. The first, as we’ve previously said, is to notify law enforcement and request their presence at the scene.
Your KABCO grade will be used as evidence later, and the entire police report can be presented in court if your case is eligible to step out of the no-fault system. Police reports are objective and include extensive details about the incident, how things developed, and who was at fault.
If you’ve been injured in a vehicle accident, it’s critical that you get yourself looked at by medical experts. Because injuries play such a large role in determining the KABCO scale it is imperative you seek an examination by medical experts to know where you are on the scale.
Medical records can also be used as evidence in your case. While it’s great for evidence, it’s also critical to ensure you’re healthy and free of an unknown internal injury.
You should also collect the contact information of the other party in case you need to file a lawsuit against them later. The best thing to obtain is their name, phone number, and insurance information that your lawyer can use later on. It is also a smart idea to find a lawyer as soon as possible to help understand your legal rights and get advice on what to do next.
