What Should I Do After An Accident?
You Must Seek Medical Attention
Have the police at the seen call for medical attention. Immediate medical attention ensures. having immediate medical care helps to build your case and helps your injury lawyer negotiate with insurance companies. Getting medical attention quickly isn’t just for your health; it strengthens your personal injury negligence claim. If you wait too long after the accident, it will be harder to prove that your injuries were the result of the accident.
