After a Serious Car Accident | First Steps
If you’re seriously injured in a car accident, the first thing you need to do is call 911. You want to get the police and an ambulance there as soon as possible if you’re suffering from injuries. If you’re able to do it, you want to take photographs of the accident scene. You want to take photographs of your motor vehicle and the area where the accident occurred.
After a Serious Car Accident | Protecting Your Rights
You want to make sure you give the police an accurate statement of what happened. Very often clients will come to me with a police report and say that the documentation is wrong. If you don’t give a clear and accurate police report, you run the risk of not having all necessary evidence documented.
At some point early on, you’re going to need to call a lawyer. A lawyer will help guide you through the process to make sure that your rights are protected. If you’re entitled to recovery from anyone that may have been involved in causing the accident, they’ll be able to make sure that you get that recovery.
