After an Automobile Accident – There are several important steps you need to take after you have been in an automobile accident. The first thing is to get the medical attention you need. Next, you need to contact an experienced personal injury attorney.
There are many pitfalls in automobile accident cases that you need to avoid. It may seem obvious but you need to get as much information about the other driver as possible, including his license plate, his driver’s license information and insurance information. Other important information may be the identification of witnesses to the accident. You should call the police to report the accident so there is a record of the accident.
Get any necessary medical treatment. The doctor or the hospital will record your injuries and treatment in your medical records. Also, you should photograph any of your injuries, whether they are cuts, bruises, scratches or stitches because the photographs will show the injuries you sustained in the accident. Injuries heal over time and it is important to have a record of the injuries you received in the accident.
