What to do after an accident
After an accident, there are three main objectives:
- Notify the authorities
- Care for your health
- Preserve your legal rights
In a motor vehicle or drowning accident, you’ll need to call 911 right away. After slip and fall, you might need to call 911 only if you require an ambulance. However, you should still notify the property manager or homeowner of the incident. Create a written report and get a copy for your records.
Your second priority is to get a medical evaluation. Even if you feel like your injuries aren’t that serious, you should see a doctor right away. The adrenaline, after an accident, can camouflage serious symptoms. Also, you’ll need documentation for your legal claim.
Your third priority is to preserve your legal rights. In addition to your medical records, you should take notes about what happened before and during the accident. Get the names and contact information of any eyewitnesses. Take photographs of the scene and make a note of any nearby security cameras. Your legal team will use all of your documentation to seek maximum compensation on your behalf.
