5 Steps to Take After Your Car Accident
Start Collecting Evidence at the Accident Scene: Take Pictures
If you are capable of walking around and taking pictures at the accident scene, you need to do so. Try to take as many pictures as you can so your San Diego car accident attorney can use them to show how the accident occurred, how much damage the accident caused to the vehicles involved and how severe your injuries are.
Find Someone to Treat Your Injuries
Your health should be your primary concern after a car accident. As soon after the accident as you can, you should go to see a doctor, physician assistant, nurse practitioner or other medical provider so your injuries can be assessed and treated. The last thing you want is to give the injuries time to worsen and cause you even more problems than they would have if they had been treated promptly. The defense will try to argue “you cannot be hurt that bad if you waited to see a doctor”.
If you do not have a primary care doctor you may consider an urgent care or local ER.
If you need a referral we can help you see a specialist.
Keep Copies of All the Documents You Need to Prove All Your Injuries, Losses and Damages
If you want the responsible party’s insurer to pay you fair compensation, you will need to be able to prove all your injuries and damages to them through documentation. Keep every document you have that is in any way related to medical treatment you received or money you lost due to your injuries.
Keep a look out for liens and collection letters. You want to give your attorney all crash related data you have received.
