What to do after a car accident?
The first thing you want to do is make sure you're okay. If you are able to get out of the vehicle, you can do so. If not, you want to wait until fire rescue arrives or the police, and they can ensure they can provide you that treatment you need. If you are able to get out of the vehicle, you want to begin to document the scene of the accident. You want to take photographs of the damage to your car, to the scene, what it looks like, so you can start in preparation of what happens when you ultimately have to make a claim for your injuries.
Now, doing so and seeking medical treatment, immediately thereafter does two things. One, it helps you get better, and two, it begins to document the medical evidence necessary to prove your claim.
And lastly, you want to call a lawyer, you want to call our office so we can guide you through all the steps necessary for your claim, help you do what's necessary, and we can ensure that you get the maximum recovery that you deserve.
