What Should You Do After A Car Accident?
The minutes and hours immediately following a traffic accident can be a confusing and frightening period. By following certain guidelines you can put yourself in the best position to recover from any injuries you have suffered and file a personal injury claim if one is needed.
The Law Office of Robert D. Massey and Associates has assembled the following tips to help you respond after a car accident:
- Seek medical attention. Your highest priority after a traffic accident is to get the medical care you need. Treating cuts, broken bones and other urgent issues is self-evidently important; this is also a good opportunity to ask your doctor about less visible conditions that may take days or weeks to manifest such as neck and back pain.
- Get the negligent party’s insurance information. After any accident, it is crucial that all parties be able to reach each other. This is especially important for injury victims, since the party accused of negligence will have every reason to leave the scene quickly. In addition to insurance information, be sure to get the driver’s name and license plate number.
- Speak with a lawyer. To get a fuller understanding of your legal options, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible. At the Law Office of Robert D. Massey and Associates, we can help you determine whether you have a legitimate personal injury claim, and guide you in your next steps.
