1. Seek medical attention.
When you are in an automobile accident,
the officer at the scene will ask if you need an ambulance ride to the hospital. You might not feel like you are injured but it’s usually a good idea to take the officer up on that offer and see a medical professional ASAP. Getting a quick and accurate diagnosis is crucial to getting better as soon as possible and protecting your legal rights.
2. Gather Information.
If you’re physically able, getting the other driver’s full name, address, and insurance information can be very helpful. Yes, the officer will do that also – but there can be transcription errors on accident reports. If you can take pictures of the scene, that can also be very helpful. If there are any witnesses at the scene, jotting down their names can also be a good idea.
3. Seek legal representation.
Your medical providers will assist with healing your body. A good personal injury attorney will assist with making sure that you are fully compensated for the injuries you sustained due to another person’s negligence. At Titus Law, we have years of experience in handling these matters and would be happy to talk to you.
