You’ve been in an auto accident, you are shaken, if you have been hurt you are in pain, and immediately overwhelmed. What do you do to protect yourself? What actions should you take in the moments after?
First, call 911. Take photos of the scene and all vehicles involved in the accident if you are physically able to. Get medical treatment right away. The adrenaline rush we experience after a car wreck can mask pain symptoms and possible injuries. Even if you think you can wait to seek treatment, it’s always best to see a doctor right away. Before speaking to an insurance company or insurance company representative, call an attorney first. Insurance companies are out to save money, don’t let them take advantage of you or your family.
