5 Things to do If You Are Hurt in a Car Accident

1) Go To the Emergency Room

Whether you go by ambulance or by some other way, you should get to the emergency room as soon as possible if you think you were injured. Not going to the ER can only endanger your health as well as hurt your ability to obtain full compensation from those who are responsible for you injuries. Insurance companies generally hold it against people who claim they were injured but failed to receive immediate medical help (the same day or within a few days after the accident).

2) Follow Up with a Doctor

Whether you go to the emergency room or not, it is very important that you see your family doctor or another doctor as soon as possible after the accident. Failing to do this can only jeopardize you health and you claim. If you do not have a family doctor or if you do not have health insurance, contact me immediately at (800) 338-0025 to discuss your options.

3) Complete All of Your Medical Treatment

Failure to properly complete your medical treatment could again hurt your recovery and the value of your case. Your injuries may not heal properly and the other person's insurance company may attempt to blame you, even though your injuries were caused by someone else. Do not let this happen!

4) Do Not Give a Recorded Statement

Giving a recorded statement to the other driver's insurance company could damage, if not ruin, your case. If you were injured in an auto accident and someone wants to take a recorded statement they are almost certainly trying to obtain damaging information that may be harmful to your claim.
