First Steps After a Car Accident | Medical Treatment
Medical attention is the most important thing that needs to happen after the accident. You might have the ability to stay on the scene to collect evidence, which we will talk about later, but if you’re in serious pain or are in danger, you need to have someone else do that for you. Whether it is right away for a few hours later, you need to see a doctor, get to the emergency room, or go to an urgent care center.
First Steps After a Car Accident | Collecting Evidence
Collecting evidence is so important to your case. If you’re unable to stay on the scene, a friend, family member, or your attorney can do this for you. You want to get pictures of all vehicles involved in the accident as well as the tire marks and your injuries. You should also gather contact information from both the witnesses to the accident as well as any other driver involved.
