What to Do If You Are Seriously Injured in an Accident
After an accident that results in serious injury, it can be challenging to know where to turn. The most important thing that you can do is to stay calm and seek treatment for your injuries.
Call 9-1-1 from the scene of the accident so that law enforcement can dispatch emergency medical personnel. Even if you do not believe that you are seriously injured, you should still be seen by a medical professional as soon as possible.
After seeking medical treatment, consider doing the following after an accident:
- Collect evidence – Write down anything that you can remember that happened before, during, or immediately after the accident. Take pictures at the scene of the accident. Note whether there were any signs indicating a dangerous condition or any road hazards that may have contributed to your injuries.
- Ask for witness contact information – If there were witnesses to the accident, ask for their information. A police report may also contain witness statements or accounts, but there may be additional parties that could help piece together what happened.
- Contact an attorney – Before signing anything or agreeing to a settlement, contact our office to discuss your case with a New Rochelle personal injury lawyer. Present all of your medical records, photos, and statements to the attorney so that they can help determine whether you have a valid claim for damages.
