car accident, DuPage County personal injury attorneys, injured in a car accident, Mevorah Law Offices LLC, accident injury, car accident injuryBeing involved in a car accident is often a scary experience, especially in the first moments after the crash. This is usually true no matter the severity of the accident. However, when car accidents result in significant injury, feelings of anxiety and stress can be amplified. Not only is the time immediately following a car accident a critical one for the injured's well being and safety, but it can also be important for the future of any case that can be made against the at-fault driver.

Advice Following an Accident

Although it is often an emotional and confusing time, the minutes following a car accidents are also often crucial for the injured. While car accidents happen under different circumstances and sets of factors, it helps to be prepared with the following advice if you ever find yourself the victim of an accident.

Assess your injuries. If you are seriously injured in a car accident, do not attempt to move since trying to do so could make your injuries worse. It is usually a good idea to avoid much movement before your injuries can be evaluated by a paramedic, since some injuries may be harder to identify than others. However, it is important to always remove yourself from a dangerous situation that poses a risk of greater harm or death despite the extent of your injuries. Report all injuries to those on scene. This may include injuries sustained by passengers, the other driver or witnesses. If you are unsure about injuries, request an ambulance for an evaluation by a paramedic. Let the paramedics know about any and all pain you are experiencing when they arrive. Seek medical assistance. Go to the emergency room as soon as possible if you feel you are injured. Refusing to do so can not only affect your health, but may also affect your ability to successfully recover damages in the event of a lawsuit. Following up with your doctor about your injuries, as well as following his or her advice about any medical treatment, is equally as important. Be sure to complete any recommended treatment plan. Cooperate with police. Be sure the police are contacted after an accident and cooperate with them when they arrive on scene. Provide them with information about the accident and your injuries, but avoid saying anything incriminating. Report the accident to your insurance company. Do this as soon as possible, regardless of fault, to be sure your policy will cover your claim. Consult with an attorney before giving any formal statement to the opposing side or an insurance company.
