What should you do if you have been injured in a car accident?
Knowing what to do after a car accident and who to turn to can be difficult. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident caused by another party, it is important to:
- Call the police: Whenever you are involved in an accident, even a minor one, be sure to contact the police. Officers will document the scene and create a record of the time, location, drivers involved, weather conditions, witnesses and the events leading to the crash. This information is vital to a successful personal injury claim.
- Seek medical attention: After an accident, you have the right to seek medical attention from a doctor or hospital of your choosing. If you are involved in a crash, obtain the necessary medical care as quickly as possible. Some injuries, such as whiplash or neck pain, may take days to develop, making it important to see a doctor even if you don’t feel discomfort immediately after the crash. Our firm will arrange all your necessary medical treatment so that you can focus on recovery.
- Contact us: If another driver’s actions caused the crash, you may be entitled to compensation for all losses related to your injuries. To protect your rights and your chances of recovering compensation, it is important to consult an attorney to discuss your case and begin the process of filing a personal injury claim as quickly as possible.
The faster you act to protect your rights after a car accident, the better your chances of recovering the compensation to which you are legally entitled.
