We all enjoy our freedom of driving our cars and trucks when and where we want besides to and from work. On a beautiful day, you and your better half decide to take a drive to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city and slow life down a little and relax. On that same day, another family is driving to their yearly family gathering to meet all the new little bundles that have joined the family tree and catch up on all family news. There are so many other families driving to their favorite retreats, malls, restaurants and entertainment. It’s all wonderful until the unthinkable happens and suddenly you realize you’ve been in an accident. Even a small one is too much. What do you do now?
1. Call 911
Call 911 first to report the accident and get fire, ambulance, and police services needed at once. If you or others involved in the accident can’t call, there will be plenty of onlookers to call for you. Rescue is on its way.
2. Accept Medical Treatment
Since the ambulance will be there to treat all involved, accept medical treatment needed, then and there, and if more is needed, a trip to the hospital. It will make a difference in your recovery and help our attorney in your lawsuit.
3. File Accident Report
Since the police will also be at the scene, if you’re able, file an accident report then. Our attorney will need this report to use in your lawsuit.
4. Be Careful of What You Say About the Accident to Anyone
Do not talk to anyone about the accident. Something you say can be taken out of context, or worse, used against you. Our attorney will need every advantage to protect and represent you in your lawsuit. Our main goal is to make sure your needs and compensation are met to cover your present and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, permanent disability, emotional distress and more.
