There are steps you should take immediately following an accident, so that if you do choose to hire a lawyer, you will have a strong case. First, make sure you never leave the scene of an accident even if the accident was not your fault. Be sure to be out of the way of the flow of traffic. Next, make sure everyone in your car and in the other car is safe. If anyone needs medical assistance, get help right away. Injuries like burn injury and spine injury require immediate medical attention. Other injuries are not immediately apparent. Even if you feel minor pain, make sure you go to the doctor. Make sure you call the police, so they can file a report. Get this report if possible; it will help your attorney determine exactly what happened. Next, get information from the other driver involved in the accident. This includes insurance information, driver’s license, etc. Next, write down all the details of the accident, from skid marks and car damage to time and location of the accident.
If you believe the other driver was at fault in the accident, you can contact a personal injury lawyer to file an auto accident suit. You may be able to recover for damages and be compensated for medical bills, or any wages lost due to inability to work after the accident. Getting the right attorney to represent you is important.
