As most people have no idea what to do when they get in an accident, I thought it would be useful to give a few simple suggestions.
A Simple Checklist:
First, take inventory of your body. Check yourself to make sure you are physically okay. If you need medical attention, do not delay. It is important to address your injuries and begin the healing process. The normal response is to say “I’m fine.” Unfortunately, undue delay in receiving care will hurt your health and hurt your case. You may have a solid claim to compensate you for your physical and financial loss.
Don’t delay. Get medical care, contact an attorney and do not speak to a claims adjuster until you do.
