What Should You Do If You Are Injured In An Accident?
After any type of accident or injury, there are some things you should do right away to protect your health, safety, and well-being:
- First and foremost, seek medical attention. If you (or anyone else involved in the accident) appear severely injured, call 911 or go to the emergency room immediately. If your injuries are relatively minor or do not require emergency attention, you should still see a doctor as soon as possible after the accident. Remember, the shock of the accident may initially mask the severity of your injuries; you should always see a medical professional and receive a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
- Next, if possible, exchange information with the other people/parties involved in the accident and notify the proper authorities. If you were involved in a car crash, this means getting the other driver’s insurance and contact information and calling the police to report the accident. If you were injured in a retail store, this means notifying the store manager or property owner of the accident and obtaining their information.
- You should also avoid saying anything that could be construed as admitting fault. Even something as simple as apologizing after an accident could be used against you later if you file a personal injury claim. The insurance company could argue that your instinctive “I’m sorry” was an admission of fault and proof of your negligence. Additionally, you should avoid downplaying your injuries. Do not make any statements along the lines of “I’m okay,” or “it’s not that bad,” as these types of statements can be taken out of context and used against you.
- Lastly, regardless of the type of accident you have been involved in or the nature of your injuries, you should consider hiring an attorney. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you with every aspect of your claim, from the initial filing process to negotiating with insurance companies to handling disputes and representing you in court. At Bahrie Law, PLLC, we do not collect any fees unless we recover compensation for our clients; our fees are paid via a pre-agreed percentage of the total recovery.
There are different processes for seeking compensation after different types of accidents. For example, the Michigan no-fault car accident system is much different than the processes involved in filing a premises liability or medical malpractice claim.
Our Canton personal injury lawyers are well-versed in all aspects of the law and are familiar with the local court systems. If you would like to discuss the specifics of your case with a member of our team, please do not hesitate to contact us and request a free consultation.
