What To Do Immediately After an Injury

The scene of an accident can be confusing. Besides calling the police and seeking medical care for the injured, what should you do next? The following steps are simple ways you can protect yourself and strengthen your case if you move forward with a civil claim:

  • Preserve any accident-related evidence to the best of your ability.
  • Take pictures of the accident scene.
  • Get information from everyone involved in the accident.
  • Secure contact information from any witnesses who saw the accident.
  • Get medical treatment to document your injuries.
  • Keep up with all medical records.

It is also important to avoid giving any kind of recorded statements. Insurance companies and other parties may use these against you in the future. We have your best interests in mind, and we will speak on your behalf and work diligently to hold liable parties accountable from the moment you call.
