If you have been involved in a serious traffic crash, there are several things you will want to do:
1) Get immediate medical attention.
If you have been seriously injured, you will likely need to call 911 in order to get life-saving emergency medical treatment. Even if you do not appear to be injured, it is important to get a full medical evaluation as soon as possible after the accident. Keep in mind that even if you seem fine you may have sustained some serious injuries, such as a head injury, soft tissue injury, or another injury which may require medical care. Seeking prompt medical care can help reduce your risk of complications or even life-threatening conditions.
2) Start documenting evidence.
Evidence is important in your case, whether you decide to pursue a claim through an insurance company or decide to file a legal claim and pursue your case in court. At the accident scene, you'll want to exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver. You will also want to refrain from apologizing for the accident or getting into any sort of debate or argument about what caused the collision. Let investigators and professionals determine that.
3) Report the accident.
If the accident was serious or if you suspect that traffic rules were violated or a law was broken during the accident, contact police. You will want to report the accident to your insurance company as well. Reporting the accident promptly shows that you are serious about protecting your rights and ensures that insurers can start evaluating your case.
4) Contact a personal injury attorney for legal advice and representation.
Even if you have excellent coverage or are not sure whether you have a claim, it is useful to speak to a personal injury attorney. A personal injury attorney can help you find out whether you have a claim or another option for seeking fair compensation in your case. An attorney can also help you with the insurance and legal process so that you can improve your chances of getting fair compensation for financial losses and damages.
