When you are injured in any type of vehicle accident, it is important that you hire an attorney who has experience in this particular area of law. Vehicle accident claims can be very complex and you will likely be up against a major insurance company with its own team of attorneys. Our firm has earned a reputation for aggressive advocacy and tireless representation for clients in all types of motor vehicle accident cases.

What to Do If You Are Injured in an Accident

The first and most important thing to do if you are involved in an accident is to check yourself and others for injuries. You should always seek medical attention after an accident, even if you believe you were not injured or if you feel that your injuries are not that bad. Injuries can take hours, days, and even weeks to manifest; it is important that you are treated by a medical professional for your own health and safety. This will also prove useful if you should pursue a personal injury claim.

If you are able to, there are a few other things you should do after the accident. Contact local police and give an official statement about the accident. Next, obtain the contact information of anyone else involved in the accident. If you have a cellphone or camera, take pictures of the scene of the accident and your injuries, if possible. If there were any witnesses, take down their contact information and a brief statement.

While you should contact your own insurance provider to report the accident, refrain from speaking with any adjusters from the liable party’s insurance company until you have first discussed your case with an attorney. Often, these adjusters will try to get you to admit blame or accept a smaller settlement amount than you are entitled to. Avoid hurting your claim; contact an attorney to discuss your case first.
