Have You Been Hurt?

Find Out the Steps You Should Take After an Accident

After an accident, there are a few important steps that you should take to help you ensure that you receive the compensation that you deserve. If you were hurt in an accident - or if a loved one has sustained major injuries - because of someone else's carelessness, negligence, or wrongdoing, then follow these important steps and contact our firm as soon as possible to retain strong legal counsel.

Make sure everyone is alright.
If you were involved in a serious accident, it is important to make sure you, your passengers, and the passengers of the other vehicle involved are alright. Do not attempt to move anyone but do provide assistance if necessary and if possible to do so without causing further harm.

Contact emergency services.
Immediately contact police, fire, or ambulance services. It is important to get medical personnel on the way as soon as possible.

Take pictures and record everything.
Take pictures with your cell phone to record damages. Record the name of the driver, his or her insurance information, license plate, make, model, and year of the car as well as the time of day and what was happening when the accident occurred.

Gather names of witnesses.
If the accident occurred in an area with witnesses, or if someone stopped to help, it is important that you gather all of their names and contact information. This can be vital to your case.

Make a police report.
Filing a police report can help an attorney or an insurance company verify legal information pertaining to your accident. It is also good to make a public record of your injuries.

Do not refuse medical treatment.
Even if you feel slightly "shook up," it is never wise to refuse medical treatment. Without treatment, something as minor as whiplash can turn into a larger complication.

Speak with an attorney.
Before you speak with your insurance company, it is important that you speak with an attorney. A personal injury attorney can help you retain damages for your injuries.
