What Should I Do Following an Accident?
Whether you’re a driver, passenger, or pedestrian, car accidents are highly traumatic for all parties involved. Knowing what to do after your car accident can be overwhelming. However, if you follow these three steps, our team at James H. Brown and Associates can better help you protect your health and legal rights:
- Seek Medical Attention. Your health should always come first, so after experiencing a car accident, you should immediately get medical attention. Medical professionals like your doctor and emergency room personnel can treat and diagnose your injuries and document relevant information related to the accident. You should give them as much detail as possible about your condition as it could help your doctor spot hidden injuries. In addition, the better your injuries are documented, the easier it will be to successfully prove that your accident caused them when your personal injury lawyer pursues your settlement.
- Document Everything. In addition to your doctor documenting your injuries, you should also keep track of the other “damages” or expenses you incur that are related to the accident or your injuries. This may include damage to your vehicle, missed days of work, medical-related costs, the police report and anything else you experience as a result of your injuries. It’s also important to report your accident to the police, especially if an officer was not present at the scene of the accident. Keeping a journal or collection of receipts is a great way to help your lawyer ensure your settlement is fair and complete.
- Speak with an Experienced Car Accident Lawyer. Once an insurance company learns that you were in an accident, one of their representatives will likely try to contact you to get a statement. Before providing a comment, you should speak to an experienced car accident injury lawyer FIRST. Partnering with an experienced personal injury lawyer from James H. Brown and Associates is the most effective way to ensure your rights are protected and that you receive fair and complete compensation for your injuries.
