What to Do If You Are a Victim of a Car Accident
If you’ve been involved in a car accident, you need to seek medical attention as soon as you can. Notifying the police of the incident should be the next step.
Remember to keep copies of all medical bills and receipts for treatment as they are used as evidence in car accident cases. Having photos of the scene and obtaining a copy of the police report can help you with the case.
Notify your insurance company as soon as possible, as most insurance companies have strict procedures regarding filing a car accident claim.
