What To Do After An Accident Or Injury
While there are different processes for different types of accident and injury claims – for example, the process of filing a car accident claim differs from the process of seeking benefits after a workplace injury – there are some steps you should always take after any accident or injury. Doing these things not only protects your health and safety but also increases the chances of a favorable outcome when it comes to recovering compensation.
After any accident or injury, if possible/appropriate, do the following:
- Remain calm: Being involved in an accident is a frightening experience, but you should do your best to stay calm. You should also stay at the scene of the accident and avoid moving unnecessarily until help arrives.
- Call 911: After a serious accident, you should call 911 and make sure you receive emergency medical attention at the scene (if necessary). You should also make sure police officers come out to the scene of the accident to prepare an official report.
- Exchange information: If you can, try to get the name, contact information, and insurance information of the other people involved in the accident. This might a fellow driver, a property owner, or even a doctor or hospital.
- Document the scene: Take pictures of the scene of the accident, as well as your injuries, if possible. Talk to witnesses and get their name(s) and contact information. Keep a record of your injuries, treatments, and recovery, as well.
- Report the incident: In addition to filing a police report, you may need to report the incident to your insurance company, an employer, a property owner, or another party. Be sure to notify the proper entities as soon as possible, as deadlines may apply.
- Contact a lawyer: After any type of accident or injury, it may be in your best interests to work with an experienced attorney. A lawyer can help you fight for a fair settlement and/or maximize your recovery/benefits.
