Did you sustain serious car accident injuries in a car crash? Watch this video to find out what actions you need to take, then call for a free consultation.
There are pretty basic things that I think are true in every case. First thing you need to do is be calm and analyze the situation. I would suggest you take pictures of the accident area, including the cars. Make sure you got the names of all the witnesses. Several times in the past, people say there’s someone who saw the whole wreck, but forgot what their name was. Make sure you get names and numbers of everybody who’s there to help you, give assistance, or witnessed the wreck.
The next thing I would probably recommend everyone do is call the police. A lot of times, people don’t want their driving record being spotted or they don’t want to be given a citation, so they try to talk someone into not calling the police. That’s not a good idea. Call the police. The next thing, and probably one of the most important things you need to do, is to get to a place where you can think and you can make some decisions about whether you want to see the doctor or not, or a physician. The ER room is available. There’s a lot of Urgent Care facilities now. The big thing is, make sure you get checked over to make sure that you’re okay, and that there’s nothing serious. Oftentimes, all the true symptoms of your wreck won’t surface for several days and maybe several weeks. Don’t hesitate to go to the doctor. Don’t hesitate to seek treatment.
