The time immediately following an accident can be the most critical period for limiting the resulting harm. Unfortunately, victims can be disoriented and unsure of how to handle the situation. The following tips will help protect the wellbeing of you and your loved ones and place you in the best position to recover from the accident.
- Assess the Situation. Survey the accident site and try to understand the extent of the damage. Make sure everyone is safe. If necessary, move to a secure location. If there’s a need for emergency medical help, call 911. If a vehicle is involved, call police to the scene.
- Gather Evidence. Photograph the accident. This includes injuries and any damaged property. Take close-up and far away shots from different angles. Record the names and contact information for all parties and witnesses. Try to piece together the details of the accident and what could have caused it. Document any facts that you think are relevant, for example, time of day, date, weather conditions, and traffic.
- Get Medical Help. If necessary, have an ambulance take you or your loved ones to a hospital. If you don’t need emergency care, schedule an appointment to see a doctor, even if your injuries seem minor. Request a thorough evaluation, including head, neck and spine. Follow all of the doctor’s orders regarding treatment for your injuries.
- Contact an Experienced Personal Injury Lawyer. Under no circumstances should you speak with representatives of an insurance company. Their job is to limit the insurance company’s liability and may record your conversation to use against you at a later time. Instead, contact a reputable personal injury attorney. An experienced attorney will have the knowledge and resources to manage your case through all phases, including investigation, settlement discussions, and litigation, with the goal of maximizing the compensation owed to you.
