3 Steps to Follow After an Accident – Miami Car Accident Lawyer
- Just the Facts
- Who? Try to get all contact information of anyone involved in the accident, as well as all witnesses at the scene of the accident, if you can. The police usually do a good job of collecting this information for you in the police report.
- Map it out or draw a diagram of the accident scene as soon as you feel up to the task because your memory may fade over time.
- Photograph it. Everybody has a smart phone now. Make sure that you or someone else takes pictures of the scene, the cars involved, and your injuries over the course of time.
- Get to the Doctor!
- There are two important reasons for early and thorough treatment that you might not appreciate. First, you may not feel injured, but there are very serious injuries that you may have sustained without realizing due to shock or perhaps you think that they are minor and will go away in a week or two. Second, if you do not get to a doctor quickly, some of your available insurance benefits may be unavailable later and an insurance company will inevitably argue that you must not be hurt by the accident since you waited to go to the doctor.
