If you wreck your car or truck in an accident and suffer an injury there are certain things you should do.
- Call the police. They can often provide great assistance in determining who caused the wreck, whether the accident involved a car, truck, tractor trailer, pedestrian, bicycle or other motor vehicle. The police report can provide aid to determining liability.
- Exchange information with the other driver. Get their full name, business and residential address, home and office phone numbers, and the name of their insurance company.
- Get information from any witnesses to the accident and take notes about what happened before, during and after the accident to help you remember later in case you need to file suit to receive compensation for injuries and damage. Taking photos of the accident scene can also be valuable.
- Seek medical attention, even if you don’t think you were injured. There are many cases where the shock of the accident might mask your symptoms. There may also be soft-tissue injuries to your neck or back where pain is not immediately felt.
- Consult an attorney who specializes in personal injury accident law. An experienced lawyer can be valuable in assisting you to get the most money for your claim. Your attorney will also contact the insurance adjuster and help you with this stressful event in your life.
