What should I do after a car accident injury?
You first need to make sure that you get appropriate medical attention.
As soon as you’ve done that, you need to make sure that the vehicle is secured and is not destroyed. That’s especially true if your vehicle has been totaled for any reason because an insurance company will come along and sell it for scrap before you know what’s going on.
So, you need to notify the appropriate persons, whether it be the place to where your vehicle is towed or your insurance company, and tell them: “Secure my vehicle so that we can investigate it to make sure nothing is wrong.”
If you’ve received a catastrophic injury of any kind, even if you think it’s your fault, you need to contact a lawyer and you probably need to contact a product liability lawyer. People like us can evaluate whether your vehicle played any role in that accident or crash; people like us can evaluate did anyone else play a role in that accident or crash. And whether we’re simply giving you advice or whether we’re taking your case, after coming to lawyers like us who investigate these things, you’ll leave with clarity about what’s happened and what you should do next.
