If you’ve suffered a car accident, the first step is always to take care of your body. Some injuries resulting from a car accident can be invisible, or masked by the shock of the accident. Always seek medical attention for complete information on your physical wellbeing.
Next, collect any relevant details, such as license plate numbers, contact and insurance information of all parties involved, and contact information for any witnesses who may have been present at the scene of the accident.
Once you have organized all of this information, it’s a good idea to seek a consultation with a personal injury or car accident lawyer who can help you proceed with insurance claims, assess any liability you may have, pursue legal action against the other parties involved, and represent you in court if necessary.
