What Do I Do After an Accident/Injury?

First, get yourself to safety. Once you have done so, see if you can help others to get out of harm’s way as well. Then, call 911. A police report can be very beneficial towards an eventual personal injury claim. You’re going to want to get the information of other parties that were involved in the accident. Talk to the other driver and get their name, contact information, and insurance info. While doing so, it’s important that you don’t take any responsibility for what happened. Don’t say “sorry” or something similar, even off-handedly. This may seem like a small thing, but it can be a genuine impediment towards you receiving the compensation you may deserve for the accident. Once you have spoken to the authorities, the next step is to reach out to a personal injury attorney. The first consultation will be free, so you can know definitively whether or not you have a case.
