What do I do if I was hurt in a car accident?

Car accidents can be devastating for victims which is why it is important for them to be familiar with their legal protections if they have been injured in an unexpected car accident or other personal injury accident. There are important steps victims of car accidents should take following a car accident to preserve the personal injury protections available to them but they may wonder what they are.

A personal injury claim for damages will allow car accident victims to recover compensation for the harm they have suffered including compensation for their physical, financial and emotional injuries. Car accident victims should ensure that any evidence available related to the accident is collected which can include photographs and other relevant information. In addition, car accident victims should make sure to obtain information from witnesses who may have witnessed the car accident. If possible, they should obtain statements and identifying information for witnesses.

Additionally, victims should carefully record, in writing, the circumstances surrounding the car accident and the car accident itself. Police should also be summoned to the scene so that a police report will be available for use should it be needed later. It is also important to seek needed medical care and treatment and carefully document the medical care and treatment the victim receives. All of this information will be helpful should the victim decide at some point to pursue a claim for damages against a negligent driver responsible for the harm they suffered.

Personal injury protections are an important resource for victims of car accidents to be familiar with. Because they can help victims in many ways, it is important for car accident victims to be familiar with the personal injury legal protections available to them.
