Is Everyone OK?
Call the Cops to Report
Document the Event Thoroughly
If others witnessed the events, see if they would be willing to exchange information, so you may call on them in the future. If neighbors are around, you may want to inquire if they have ever seen other accidents in the exact same location.
Speak with Your Insurance Agent
Keep Tabs on Medical Bills
Medical costs are relatively easy to record, but suffering and pain are more difficult to establish. Maintain a list of how your injuries have influenced your everyday life.
Calculate All Property Damage Expenses
Confirm all of your bodily injuries are handled. Some injuries do not appear or reach their highest degree of distress until many days, weeks, or months afterward. Do not settle a claim until you understand you’re going to be paid for your entire injuries, and consult with a lawyer before signing any compensation records.
Consider Hiring a Qualified Attorney
Do not speak about the injury to anyone aside from your attorney, your insurer, and the authorities. Do not speak to a representative from a different insurer with no knowledge of your attorney or insurance company. Additionally, tell your attorney or insurer about the telephone call if someone else tries to contact you.
